Canadians are trolling Conservative leader Erin O'Toole's new slogan
On Wednesday, the leader of the Official Opposition of Canada took to Twitter to share a few words about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
With this, he also shared a poster featuring a picture of Trudeau alongside the words, "Canada doesn't need a poster boy" and then an picture of himself with the words, "Canada needs a handyman."
I don’t think Canada needs another slogan, it needs a plan. Do you agree?— Erin O'Toole (@erinotoole) October 1, 2020
We need to build back stronger, and the only way that can happen is with a united country. 🇨🇦 pic.twitter.com/rYx2zqIUNy
As can only be expected, many began trolling O'Toole online for his use of the word "handyman" which even began trending on Twitter.
"Really. Is this the best crappy tweet you can do Erin. For God sakes get a writer that doesn’t make you continue to look foolish. 'Handyman.' .... OMG," someone else wrote.
“Build back better” “Handyman Erin”? Nice...slogans? Good first try, man.— Grover Carey Disagrees (@grovercarey) October 1, 2020
Others pointed out that in criticizing Trudeau for his slogans and for being an alleged poster boy, O'Toole himself created a new slogan and poster.
So you give us yet another slogan, instead of a plan. Well done. BTW 'Handyman" is ridiculous.— Ann Peel (@athleteswalk) October 1, 2020
"Um, what do you think 'Canada needs a handyman' is? It's a slogan......." another Twitter user added.
"Build back stronger" and "Canada needs a handyman" are slogans. Bad slogans, but slogans nonetheless.— Clem Fandango (@mikeoriordan74) October 1, 2020
"Erin O’Toole: I don’t think Canada needs another slogan... Also Erin O’Toole: Do you like my 'I'm Canada's handyman' slogan?" another person tweeted.
Some went on poked fun at O'Toole for referring to himself as a handyman.
Does the Handyman have an O'Toole belt?— Derek Ground (@DerekTGround) October 1, 2020
"A handyman in a blue suit and tie. I bet he doesn’t get his hands dirty," another tweet reads.
He wants to be the new Red Green. pic.twitter.com/RwzVLUuX71— Roger Allcroft (@AllcroftRoger) October 1, 2020
O'Toole's tweet comes just hours after he made his debut as party leader in the House of Commons, which was delayed after he and his wife tested positive for COVID-19.
This also served as O'Toole's official response to last week's Speech from the Throne in which he criticized the federal government's response to the coronavirus pandemic.
"That throne speech could have provided a clear and distinct plan on the eve of a second wave of this pandemic, it failed to do that," he said.
Formerly an Ontario MP, O'Toole was elected as leader of the Conservative party back in August
