…because it sure looks to me like he’s forgotten:
Stephen Harper was spotted leaving the West Wing earlier today, but little is known about what the former prime minister said inside the White House.
Harper was expected to meet on Monday with Larry Kudlow — the director of the National Economic Council and U.S. President Donald Trump’s go-to economic adviser — and John Bolton, the president’s national security adviser, according to multiple sources who spoke to CBC News on the condition of anonymity.
An Associated Press photographer snapped a photo of the former Conservative leader leaving the White House, but neither Harper’s team nor the U.S. administration has responded to CBC’s requests for comment about what happened during Monday’s trip to Washington.
Harper did Tweet Monday that he looked forward to meeting with more business and government leaders “to discuss the forces shaping our future,” in a plug for his forthcoming book.
Pretty sure no one wants to buy said book, either. No wonder he’s resorting to desperate tactics to get his name in the press again.
And for those who wonder if he was invited, here’s your answer:
Harper, who now works as a consultant, personally approached the two officials for a meeting, sources told CBC News last week.
Nope. Not invited. He just showed up, and even our embassy in Washington was caught completely flat-footed. And all of Canada is palming its collective face and wishing he’d just put a sock in it. There is a reason we voted him out, after all, and it wasn’t just to get the guy with the nicer hair.
And speaking of people who need to put a sock in it, get a load of the Trudizzle’s trade minister, or as I like to call her (because she is one), Nazi Granddaughter:
Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said she believes Harper’s appearance on Fox News was helpful.
“When it comes to prime minister Harper, he is someone we all need to respect as the former prime minister of Canada,” she said on Friday.
No, we don’t need to respect him anymore, because he is not the PM anymore. And those of us who referred to him as ShitHead during his reign never respected him to begin with, because there was nothing there to respect. Like said: There is a reason we got rid of him. SEVERAL of them.
And frankly, nobody wants to see him coming back to stick his oar in, ever again.
