#ProtectingButts: Report Says Liberal MPs Call Top Trudeau Advisor “Prime Minister Butts” Behind The Scenes

Members of the Liberal Caucus seem to be getting fed up with Butts, who once compared Trudeau’s political opponents to Nazis.

According to a report by Toronto Sun columnist Anthony Furey, members of the Liberal Caucus are increasingly fed up with the high profile and excessive influence of Trudeau advisor Gerald Butts.

Writes Furey, “The man is Gerald Butts, Trudeau’s principal secretary. While his title may sound like he’s the chief coffee boy, make no mistake — he’s the head honcho. A former senior advisor to Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, he’s referred to as PM Butts by many Liberal caucus members. This undemocratic dynamic has been known to political watchers since day one but has managed to stay as an inside baseball story. Until now. In recent months, Butts has been drawing his own attention in a way that’s bound to make him a greater liability for the PM moving forward.”

Furey notes that there is a theory that Butts was behind the idea of sending Trudeau’s national security advisor to tell the media that the Jaspal Atwal invite was a conspiracy by the government of India.

Butts also garnered attention for despicably calling critics of Trudeau’s “peoplekind” remark ‘Nazis.’

Trudeau must be held accountable

While Butts is certainly a bad influence – he was the architect of many of the policies that are having a horrible impact in Ontario – Trudeau is ultimately responsible.

Trudeau could get rid of Butts at any moment, and if he had any strength of character or honesty he would keep his promise to empower MPs, instead of letting an un-elected advisor take so much power and dictate what MPs must do.

We can’t let Trudeau get away with shifting blame anywhere – even within his own staff. Plus, if he is so weak as to have had his power usurped by somebody else, then it just adds to the massive amount of evidence showing he has no business being in the Prime Minister’s chair.

Trudeau’s MPs must also hold him accountable, as their first duty must be to their country and their constituents, not propping up an unfit Prime Minister.

If they really have such serious concerns about Butts, they need to start speaking out publicly against him and against Trudeau. If they fail to do that, they only confirm their own Trudeau-style weakness and add to the reasons they need to be defeated in 2019.

Conservatives have known this for a long time, that Trudeau is Butts’ puppet. With Butts out of the way, poor Justin Trudeau wouldn’t know what to do.
But, without Butts, he could always use Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton or George Soros as a lifeline.

Does Butts think that he is in high school? His words and comments are so inappropriate. I would be ashamed to have him to represent me.

Butts was so bad in Ontario that McGuinty even had to step down, unfortunately Wynne who is worse got in. They also seemed to control the Lieberal Conservative party who put in ?leaders who seemed more Lieberal than Conservative, so the Lieberals kept getting in, and the fact that newcomers to Canada were repeatedly told to vote Lieberal and Ontario is a “have not” province now. The Lieberals kept trash attacking PM Harper for more money, and he kept telling them to get their financials in order, of course they did not and kept borrowing more. Gee, just like the… Read more »

I think that there is a cover-up and Trudeau is decidedly mentally unstable – not insane, just to tenderhearted and child like to be a strong ruler. Justin grew up in a “Gilded Cage”. His ridiculous remark about Italian Immigrants turned my stomach. We WASP’s in Quebec found the Italian girls very interesting and the Italian fellows were good friend to me and many others. his remark belayed the truth! He really did grow up in an imaginary world! Most Italian workers were great union supporters and a very welcome component of mining town life. Justin’s strange flavor of Canada… Read more »

Butts is to Trudeau as Cheney was to Bush II – the real decision maker or if you like, the real PM/President.

At least Pierre Trudeau was the boss but not his son. Seems he inherited his mother’s lack of brains and his father’s arrogance. What a combination.

Butt his Butt is his conscience. Kinda like Jiminy Cricket to Pinocchio. Maybe when Trudeau becomes a real boy, he won’t need his Butt to tell him what to do anymore.

Who elected Butt? Nobody. Get rid of him.

The hard truth is we have a broken inefficient democracy in Canada.
