Justin Trudeau’s ‘Elbowgate Scandal’

We’ve seen many government scandals in the past few years, whether it be the Senate expense scandal or any scandal related to the Panama Papers.

But Donald Trump recently said in an interview with UK’s ITV that Muslims should work with the police and “turn people in”.

You know, as if all Muslim communities are like those friendly cul-de-sacs where everyone is friends with everyone and that one guy who lives in the corner house, Rasheed, is up to no good.
