It seems we can always count on Justin to rack up a few more headlines, and front page pictures. He sees it as his job, being the face of Canada to the world. His narrative is that of a sanctimonious twat who gets to hector other nations to pull up their socks if they want to trade with Canada.

Philippines' Duterte helps secure Trudeau invitation to security event
Thanks to Duterte’s effort, Trudeau will join leaders from 18 countries, including China, Russia and the United States, to discuss security issues.

MANILA, PHILIPPINES—Rodrigo Duterte went “out on a limb” to secure a key invitation for Justin Trudeau to attend a prestigious Asia-Pacific security event alongside powerful world leaders, government officials say.

But one senior insider insists the Philippine president’s helpful gesture won’t have any impact on whether Trudeau confronts him about human-rights violations in the southeast Asian country that have shocked people around the world.

Trudeau has hinted he might bring up the issue of human rights with Duterte, if he gets the opportunity.

The leaders have no one-on-one meetings planned while the prime minister is visiting the Philippines for summits related to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

Francisco Fernandez of the Philippines embassy in Ottawa says Canada asked for the invitation and Manila didn’t hesitate to grant it, in part because of trade and investment ties and in part because 837,000 people of Filipino descent live in Canada.

Thanks to Duterte’s effort, Trudeau will have a coveted opportunity Tuesday to participate in a working lunch in Manila ahead of an ASEAN-affiliated meeting known as the East Asia Summit. Trudeau will join leaders from 18 countries, including China, Russia and the United States, to discuss security issues. [....]

In this case, our embarrassing nag, Justin looks for a chance to embarrass the host, who has used his influence to get Trudeau a chair where he can play sanctimonious twat, while the serious people try to resolve differences and get closer to a real trade deal.

In diplomatic language, this kind of diplomatic move is known as a "stab in the back".

I cannot imagine how somebody so guileless could screw things up so badly ... all the while maintaining the air of whimsical innocence. Is there nobody in the LIberal party who knows how to play this game?

I keep thinking ... how does it go? First time as tragedy, second as farce?
