It’s not about the date, it’s about Grant pretending that he has some insider super secret knowledge and is a keen industry pundit, etc.
"I’m a great predictor of the weather. I’m the best, even with my weird French accents. Everyone bow down to the huge walls of text that demonstrate my ability to predict the weather. Watch, I’ll show you how good I am at predicting the weather.
It will rain on Tuesday.
Wait, what? It didn’t rain on Tuesday? It was really sunny? That doesn’t mean anything. The fundamentals for rain are there. In a sense, it did rain on Tuesday, just as I predicted. Despite no actual water falling from the sky.
Just wait! it will rain on Wednesday for sure then.
No? Still sunny on Wednesday? Open your eyes! The entire world knows it rained on Tuesday … errr. Wednesday. You’re the only one insisting that the lack of rain means there was a lack of rain.
Let’s just wait for um tomorrow, I mean Thursday, I mean Friday. Look, it will eventually rain! It still hasn’t rained, but trust me. I know what I’m talking about.
I’m still a great predictor of the weather, see?"
Would you want that guy to be your weatherman?
That’s exactly how Grant has been with this issue – he insisted that he knew exactly what was going on, and every day that ticks by, it shows that he really doesn’t know what’s going on.
Next he’ll tell us that the NDP actually won the last election, even if they didn’t, and that prediction of his was correct as well, because they could win the next one… or the one after that…
