Bernie Sanders and Justin Trudeau, aren’t they a comparable pair?

 Justin Trudeau, our starry-eyed progressive prime minister, gave a nice warm send-off when his old friend Fidel Castro checked out in 2016, talking niceties rather than about Castro’s thousands of murders and outright executions, his imprisonment of hundreds upon hundreds of dissidents, and his revolutionary creation of Cuba as his own communist island.

Never speak ill of the dead, his dear old momma likely told him.

And so Trudeau, in part, said this: “While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for ‘el Comandante’…”

Compare that to the realism of Rona Ambrose, then the interim leader of the Conservatives.

Ambrose, in part, said this: “Under his rule, thousands were impoverished, thousands were imprisoned and executed, and free speech, thought and assembly were curtailed or banned, all to live up to his version of ‘socialism’…”

In a far out left-wing way, Trudeau therefore has a political kinship with Bernie Sanders, the “democratic socialist” and 78-year-old coot now leading an uninspiring pack to be nominee for the party of Truman and JFK to take on the big orange-haired lug in November’s U.S. presidential election.

Both like to describe Castro without the blood on his hands.

And then there’s Trudeau’s weird fantasy that lauds the dictatorship of communist China as a model country for economic emulation.

 Justin Trudeau's statement on Fidel Castro's death a revisionist embarrassment
Sanders, however, should have known better than to go on 60 Minutes thinking that the hardboiled CBS news magazine would suddenly do a switcheroo and broadcast a puff piece on the longtime Vermont senator who could possibly become America’s 46th President.

Normally when a 60 Minutes correspondent shows up at a politician’s front door, the best reaction is to head for the back door.

Sanders, however, actually accepted 60 Minutes’ invitation, which makes him either confident and courageous or a doddering old fool.
