Photos Emerge Of Super Liberal Justin Trudeau In Blackface; He Confesses To Wearing Blackface More Than Once

This guy’s career should be imploding.

Published

One of the most enigmatic political figures in the world is without a doubt Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a super liberal and progressive fellow who has swept the world with his youth, charisma, and charm.

But it seems those days might be over, thanks to a bunch of party photos from 2001 that have resurfaced, showing Trudeau rocking blackface during his time at a private school where he was teaching.

Ouch.

Oh, but that’s not bad enough. Trudeau has actually admitted to wearing blackface on multiple occasions.

“The photograph has not been previously reported. The picture was taken at an ‘Arabian Nights’-themed gala. It shows Trudeau, then the 29-year-old son of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands completely darkened,” TIME reported. “The photograph appears in the 2000-2001 yearbook of West Point Grey Academy, a private day school where Trudeau was a teacher.”

TIME received a copy of the yearbook earlier this month from Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson, “who was part of the West Point Grey Academy community” and “felt [the photo] should be made public.”

Zita Astravas, who works in media relations in Liberal Party of Canada, which Trudeau is the leader of, confirmed that Trudeau was the person in the photo wearing blackface: “It was a photo taken while he was teaching in Vancouver, at the school’s annual dinner which had a costume theme of ‘Arabian Nights.’ He attended with friends and colleagues dressed as a character from Aladdin.”

Trudeau spoke with reporters during a press conference not long after the TIME report broke, where he admitted to donning blackface more than once, then dodged questions about whether or not he would resign amid the scandal.

Trudeau said, “I stand here before Canadians as I will throughout this campaign and talk about the work we have to do to make a better country together. And I am going to continue to stay focused on that and continue to work to fight intolerance and discrimination, even though obviously I made a mistake in the past.”

“I shouldn’t have done it. I should have known better, but I didn’t,” Trudeau went on. “And I’m really sorry.”

Trudeau detailed another time he wore blackface, stating “When I was in high school I dressed up at a talent show and sang ‘Day O’ with makeup on.”

The question here is whether or not folks in the progressive movement will demand he step down from office, or if they’ll try to downplay the incident since he’s a key figure in their movement.

If I had to put money down on it, I’d say they’ll probably either be completely silent on the whole thing and pretend like it’s not happening or make excuses to overlook such a “youthful indiscretion.”

Of course, this kind of grace would never be extended to a conservative individual in a similar situation. He or she would be labeled a racist and their life and career destroyed.

Inconsistency is something liberals have come to be defined by as a movement.

Kevin McCarthy Says Top Dems Who Walked Out Of White House Meeting Are ‘Infatuated’ With Impeaching Trump

Published

on

Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the top member of the GOP in the House of Representatives, told his side of the story about the now infamous meeting that took place in the White House that featured House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer all walking out the door in the middle of things. According to McCarthy, the reason for their departure is because they are “infatuated” with the idea of impeaching President Trump. Pelosi recently launched an impeachment inquiry into the president not that long ago over a phone call he made to Ukraine concerning possibly shady business dealings involving Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Check out what McCarthy had to say via Fox News: “They left the meeting, other Democrats stayed and we had the most normal meeting you could ever have that was productive with the general of the joint chiefs, the secretary of defense and the president talking about how do we keep the homeland safe,” he said. “The president starts out and he provides the letter he sent to the president of Turkey, Erdogan,” he continued, claiming Pelosi did not look at it when it came to her turn and instead put it face down on the table. “I have served with six presidents,” the Maryland lawmaker said in a clip played by host Laura Ingraham. “Never… have I seen a president treat so disrespectfully a coequal branch of the government of the United States.” “These people are infatuated — they are fixated on impeaching this president instead of worrying about fixing our problems,” he said. McCarthy went on to say, “Who is the leader? The person who stayed in the room and had a discussion. The people who left the…

Sources Claim Turkish President Erdogan Tossed Trump Letter In The Garbage

Published

on

Sources are claiming that Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan wasn’t too thrilled about the letter he received from President Trump that warned him not to take action along the Syrian border and tossed the letter in the trash. These same sources, who are close to Erdogan, confirmed with the BBC on Thursday that he “thoroughly rejected” the president’s letter, in which Trump threatened to annihilate Turkey’s economy if he decided to go forward with military action in Syria following Trump’s announcement several days prior to pull troops from the northeast of Syria. Here’s more from Fox News: Erdogan reportedly took the letter warning against being a “fool” and tossed it “in the bin,” the sources said. The letter, first obtained by Fox Business Network, came the same day Erdogan launched a Turkish military offensive into Syria, claiming it wanted to “neutralize terror threats” and establish a “safe zone.” Turkish forces last Wednesday carried out airstrikes and later announced ground troops had invaded northeastern Syria. Nearly all U.S. troops there have been removed and will be redeployed in the region in the coming weeks, something critics said was the “green light” for Erdogan to act. Here’s the letter Trump sent to Erdogan via Trish Regan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/trish_regan/status/1184559361638748161 Trump took a lot of criticism for his decision to remove troops from Syria, with many folks saying that this move was basically granting permission for Erdogan and Turkish forces to waltz into Syria and attack our Kurdish allies, essentially leaving our “friends” hanging. The president has since defended his actions saying the move to pull troops was not a “green light” for the attack on the Kurds.
