“Grifter” today is yesterday’s “con man”. “Gestalt” is a German word with psychological connotations, meaning roughly “wholistic”, referring to therapy for the “whole person”. In my opinion George W. Bush and Condoleeza Rice are two grifters of historic proportions. I don’t see that Trudeau treats “grifters” wholistically. I don’t think he cares about such constraints. He doesn’t have to care. He just unsheathes his rapier.
