TORONTO — Ontario Premier Doug Ford has criticized two high-profile Democratic politicians during an appearance in Washington, D.C.

Ford, who was participating in a fireside chat at the winter meeting of the National Governors Association, took shots at both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Bernie Sanders.

The premier slammed Pelosi for ripping up a copy of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address this week, calling her actions “disappointing” and “a shame.”

He also criticized socialism and said the politics of Sanders, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, are “scary.”

Ford also appeared to endorse President Trump’s re-election bid, saying he hoped the election turned out “literally the right way,” an allusion to the Trump’s conservative political leanings.

Four Canadian premiers are in the U.S. this week to help foster better co-operation and improved trade between their provinces and U.S. states.

  1. So he likes a dictatorship.. if you talk against his government.. you get punished or fired including your family .. sounds like Russia but this is happening next to us .. Republicans bitch about socialism.. but ok with communism

  2. Gotta love the twisted logic of the Anti-Trumpers. Democrats are quickly self destructing as none of their fake and furious story lines only drive TRUMP harder.

  3. It is disgusting that he is angered by Nancy Pelosi’s actions but says nothing about innumerable egregious words and actions by Herr Trump. It disgusts that he is premier of this province. Trump worshipers are unCanadian.
