A popular refrain on social media during the first term of the Trudeau government was that the PM was little more than a puppet for Gerald Butts, who was then principal secretary to the PM. The taunts sometimes had different angles to them – some of them even roping George Soros into the mix, who was supposedly controlling Butts while Butts controlled Trudeau – but they were all variations on the same theme: That Trudeau wasn’t really in charge or making the decisions.
