President Trump’s “self-satisfied little nemesis” from Canada, Justin Trudeau, was apparently accused of groping a reporter. The 46-year-old left-wing prime minister prides himself a progressive feminist. I wonder what his fans think of him now that he’s caught in a Havey Weinstein type of scandal?
According to Fox News, Trudeau said he didn’t “remember any negative interactions” on the day in 2000 when he’s accused of groping a reporter at a festival in British Columbia.
Allegations against Trudeau re-surfaced last week when a Calgary law professor posted a picture of an article claiming the then-teacher engaged in inappropriately “handling” a reporter. The story didn’t have a byline.
“I remember that day in Creston well,” Trudeau said on Sunday. “I had a good day that day. I don’t remember any negative interactions that day at all.”
This has apparently gone on for nearly a decade but resurfaced on social media when photos of the editorial were widely shared. Trudeau was said to have apologized to the woman after he found out she was a reporter.
The politically correct Trudeau has always been a big advocate for any cause identified with the left, including women’s causes, making the groping allegation, if true, hypocritical all by itself.
But more than that, Trudeau is not an old guy, someone who dates himself by being from another era with different standards. Trudeau was doing his supposed groping at age 28, which is well into adulthood and past the age of animal impulse. And, you can bet he was schooled and educated in the finest in political correctness all his life, including the importance of not groping random women. That he would go out groping anyway suggests a rather entitled sense of arrogance. Rules apparently don’t apply to him; they are just there for the little people.
No wonder he has so many problems dealing with President Trump. Let’s hope the press keeps the heat on him. He’s likely overdue for a good apology tour on this one.
