Doug Ford’s Twitter Account Retweets “Scheer Must Go” Tweets, Office Says Staffer Did It

Whoopsies.

It’s no secret that many supporters of Doug Ford were not happy with Andrew Scheer’s distancing of himself from Ford in the recent election campaign.

Scheer also rarely pushed back against Justin Trudeau’s repeated demonization of Ford.

Of course, we all know how that turned out.

The Scheer campaign failed to win the seats they needed in the GTA, even doing worse than Harper did in 2015. The Conservatives also dramatically under-performed the numbers Ford got in the GTA just over a year ago.

So, it was ‘interesting’ to see these two retweets (since deleted) from Doug Ford’s Twitter account:

“#BREAKING: The Premier’s twitter account was just used to RT anti @AndrewScheertweets, govt tells@globalnews “A staff who used to have access to @fordnation account RTd a tweet by accident” #ONpoli

Scheer Must Go Tweet

 

Blaming a staffer is a time-old political trick for getting a leader out of trouble, but it may also be true in this case. Many staffers probably have access to Ford’s account, and someone may have forgotten to switch from Ford’s account to their account before Tweeting.

Still, there’s definitely a lot of division and anger within the Conservatives at this point, and Scheer’s position is far from safe. Time will tell what happens.

Scheer’s weakness is he is worried about how he is perceived by the public. Rather than standing up for what he believes , he tries too hard to please everyone. And this has lead to Trudeau being able to control what Scheer says and does, as well as framing the Conservative’s over all public image. Unless Scheer drastically changes his approach to issues, fights back against the attacks from Trudeau and his supporters,then he won’t be leader of the Conservatives for much longer. If Scheer manages to hang onto his job as leader of the Conservatives and doesn’t make substantial… Read more »

But it is true Scheer blew it big time , when he first became leader he was nothing more then trudeau 2.0 and never really became what he should have , I will guarantee most of the conservative votes weren’t for him they were mostly votes against Trudy .

So they are still attacking Doug Ford, and maybe it happened, the lieberals want our country and provinces in so much debt that they will collapse us but nobody wants to tell the truth about what really is happening, must all kinds of expensive radical special interest groups be the useless focus? They mostly all have their special rights and laws to protect them now with much fanfare the Conservatives supposedly will take it away according to this media so now they can divide the Conservatives up. and there, they are gone now, so the lefties can now take this… Read more »

Of course Scheer has to go. Any leader who cannot capitalize on the political disaster that is Canada has no ideas and is not a leader. That said, who would be his replacement, just another liberal lite, following the same socialist policies we have been building for the past 75 years.

Scheer is a liberal. Thought he would grab the liberal voters fromTrudeau. He was wrong. The globalist puppet who won the leadership through some corrupt deals has shown who he really is. Too bad for conservatives who wish to keep this country together. He lost to the most corrupt leader Canada has ever seen. He followed Trudeau’s plan and lost. Showed he is far from the leader he was trying to be.

I think Andrew Scheer did a great job. Yes, maybe he could have spoken with a louder voice during the debates etc., but I think he got some pretty good results especially with the bribed media against his every move. The media is still working for Trudeau and are doing their best to have the Conservative members turn against Scheer because the Liberals are afraid of him. It is all a conspiracy to get someone in as Conservative Leader that Trudeau can beat because Trudeau knows that next time around, Andrew will win.
