How to use snarky sarcasm to destroy haters: An article by Justin Trudeau Hello friends. As you know, it can be difficult to stay #positive and #hopeful in the face of demonizing negativity from the Right. As leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, I know that we can be better than that.

Since I’m so experienced in the political game, I feel the need to set the example, and show my supporters the most effective and essential methods for shutting out negativity on Twitter: 1. Use straight sarcasm to win the fight Some guy with a large head butted into my vicious argument with some businessman who’d insulted me.

I bet he was SO MAD about it! #hardworkandchange #Trud-owned 2. Twist insults into compliments I was winning an epic fight against some kid named @ReverendBlair, when some nobody named Chris Cain suggested that the Supreme...
