A Friendly Reminder That The Biggest A-Hole On Television Is Canadian
We let one slip through the cracks.
All Canadians are polite, they say. They're too nice, they say.
No. Wrong. False. Most Canadians are nice — it's encoded in our DNA — but every so often there is a deviant, an outlier, an exception.
His name is Kevin O'Leary.
O'Leary, born in Quebec, is an entrepreneur who is most (in)famously known as an investor and television personality first on Dragons' Den, then on Shark Tank.
Where he's undoubtedly become the A-hole of network TV.
*Eh-hole as it's said in Canada. Just kidding. Sorry.
Sure, sure, it's probably a shtick, and sometimes you can't help but laugh...
BUT SOMETIMES IT'S NOT: Like, when he shaded and shamed the premier of Alberta, Rachel Notley.
Or when he called Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges a "nutbar" on air while debating Occupy Wall Street.
Because, as we interrupt regular programming to remind you, he's Canadian. Born and bred.
