OH FUCKING SNAP! Trudeau fucks with tRump

Not only the handshake, I am watching the kickoff to the meeting with women executives. One thing about tRump is he ALWAYS tries to use the person's first name, while having them use MR TRUMP or PRESIDENT TRUMP. This goes all the way back to his stupid tv show.

This morning he introduced Prime Minister Trudeau, then when Trudeau starts the thanks "Donald."

Seems small, but it was an intentional fuck you to the Donald.

2. Did the republican draft-dodger-in-chief try another SneakAttack handshake?

It is so low. Pathetic cheating republican gamesmanship. I'd imagine Trudeau - and the rest of the world - have caught on to the republican grifter-in-chief's sleazy Casino Jerk Handshake by now.

48. He also put his hand underneath. That's the move Trump's been doing.

Trump refuses to shake evenly. He has to be under and strongly holds the other's hand as if it were dainty.

Trudeau is going to be trying his best not to get on his bad side right away. Its like tiptoeing around a defensive paranoid meth addicted bully. As a Canadian I don't want to antagonize this big orange bully because of the repercussions he could inflict. I wish it weren't so. I was anticipating we would finally have a nice stretch of Canada and the USA both with more liberal governments and what we could accomplish together for climate change etc... sigh.

9. I hope Justin has the subtlety and diplomacy chops

 

He will need them to deal with Trump effectively, while letting him know that he's talking to an equal who won't back down. He started off well with the handshake defense and addressing him as "Donald". The bilateral trade volume is a major mitigating factor, but a couple of missteps on Justin's part could bring the shitgibbon's resentment to the boil. We'll see where it goes.

I'm so relieved it's not "Little Stevie" Harper down there...

Well, that, and ... as much as I hate to admit it ... Bruno nailed the Prince tribute ... He's nowhere near the guitarist Prince was (RIP Purple One) but he did the man justice, and not many others could. I wish he'd played like 10 more songs tbh ... because a little 'The Time' medley and 'Lets Go Crazy' was just ... not enough.

13. Love it - I used to do stuff like that when I was working.

I had a boss for years who never bothered to learn my name - "Alan", he kept spelling it "Allen". Finally I got pissed and started misspelling his last name. After a few weeks he asked me about it, and I told him. He never spelled my name wrong again.

I love Prime Minister Trudeau - it's too bad he and Barack Obama couldn't have served together longer. I suspect they have the same personalities and senses of humor.

46. I had a boss who did something similar.

She called me Deanne, rather than Deanna. At first, it was no big deal since it has happened a lot in my life and I'm fairly used to it. But it continued, even after she heard others call me by my proper name right in front of her - AND a couple of times someone even strongly emphasized the "a" at the end. Plus, it wasn't like she never saw my name written either. I don't know what her deal was, but I never bothered to correct her. It did irk me though.

19. It IS a tactic. It's a mind-fuck. It's psy-ops.

It's an "I'M the adult and YOU'RE the child and YOU will address ME with a term of respect" thing.

It's reinforced with school children. You are not on first-name basis with your teacher. It's ALWAYS "Mrs. So-&-So," "Mr. So-&-So," "Ms. So-&-So" (or in my case, "Sister So-&-So" for the kids to address their teachers. The teachers address their students on a first-name basis. It's about rank. Who's superior and who's inferior. Who's on top and who's underneath. Knowing your place in that structure. When you go to the doctor you usually address him or her as "Dr. So-&-So", not by his or her first name (unless, of course, you happen to have been friends for a long time).

It's a construct that shows you which direction the respect is to be given. Upward from little you to the ranking person who has a title (the Mr./Mrs./Ms./Dr.) to prove it.

Being on first-name basis denotes a peer level thing. Parity. Equal ranking. Both at the same level.

34. I go by...

...and introduce myself as "Mrs." at the pediatric office where I work. Our office has 9 doctors. I am the only nurse practitioner. No one calls my physician colleagues by their first names, even if the doc walks in to an exam room and says , "Hi, I'm Susan Jones." The parent never responds with "Hi, Susan." Never.

For some reason, if I, as the nurse practitioner, introduce myself as 'Cat Woman,' people thinks it is OK to call me by my first name. I think that going by a formal title serves to affirm that the patient is getting the same level of professionalism as they get from the physicians.

I address the parents as Mr. or Mrs. to be respectful to them. There are a few moms I have known long enough that we use first names if on the phone, but not in front of the kids.

My early career was spent in the AIr Force nurse corps, where, of course, everyone was addressed by rank. I my first civilian job after that, it just felt like to much of a switch to go from "Captain" (and eventually Major) to my first name.

Most NPs I know do go by their first names. I guess I am an outlier.

Teaching Mathematics and French. (He has two and a half degrees)

So he know how to deal with bullies, primadonnas, and privileged children exhibiting arrested development.

Hmm, reminds me of an orange child I've seen somewhere recently.

I'm sure it hasn't escaped 45's attention that Trudeau is YOUNGER and MUCH BETTER LOOKING and TRIM.

The name thing IS important. Don't know if Trudeau intentionally used the first name to make him on an equal level. But I'm certain the Donald noticed. He's into that sort of thing.

51. I think that if you were to brace your feet firmly,

extend your hand only a short distance with your hand slightly lower than normal, and tense up your bicep as SCROTUS takes your hand. When he does the pull you resist instead of letting him draw your hand toward him. He'd be pretty flummoxed, I think; and wouldn't dare yank hard because then it would be too obvious what he was trying to do. If you were a big strong guy with big hands you might want to grasp his hand very firmly, until the bones grind just a bit.
