Fuddle Duddle 2.0

Liberal leader Justin Trudeau used some decidedly un-prime ministerial language when speaking publicly at the Fight for the Cure charity boxing match in Gatineau, Que. on Saturday night.

Invited by the ring announcer at the Hilton Lac Leamy, Trudeau climb through the ropes and took the microphone to say a few words about the event at which, two years ago, he thrashed a much larger Sen. Patrick Brazeau. (The two mens’ career trajectories since the fight are documented in a Citizen piece this weekend.)

“I’m going tell you, there is no experience like stepping into this ring and measuring yourself,” he said.  “All the — your name, your fortune, your intelligence, your beauty — none of that fucking matters.” 

The f-bomb drew some cries from the high-spirited crowd. [...]

The choice of salty bon mot will doubtless draw comparisons to the infamous incident, considered scandalous in 1971, when Trudeau’s father mouthed “fuck off” at opposition MPs across the aisle in the House of Commons. Pierre Trudeau later claimed the exact phrase he used to be “fuddle duddle.”
