Him Too! Obnoxious Liberal Leader Accused of Groping Reporter
WOW. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was accused of "groping" a young female reporter on assignment in August 2000. "Like father, like son" reads the editorial. https://t.co/7GiBEd6RIr— Candice Malcolm (@CandiceMalcolm) June 7, 2018
According to the article, Trudeau told the young woman: "I’m sorry. If I had known you were reporting for a national paper, I would never have been so forward."
Here is a slightly better quality image of an editorial in the August 14, 2000 Creston Valley Advance, a local B.C. paper, which claims Justin Trudeau apologized for "inappropriately handling" (or "groping" in the paper's words) a female reporter. pic.twitter.com/fZ748QqWYX— Sean Craig (@sdbcraig) June 7, 2018
What's that suppose to mean? If he thought he could get away with acting like a creep, he would?
The reporter outright dismissed Trudeau's mea culpa and proceeded to chide the then 25-year-old son of former Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau for his astonishing lack of self-awareness. (Breitbart)
“[S]houldn’t the son of a former prime minister be aware of the rights and wrongs that go along with public socializing?” the editorial asks.
“Didn’t he learn through his vast experiences in public life, that groping a strange young woman isn’t in the handbook of proper etiquette, regardless of who she is, what her business is or where they are?”
As the current Prime Minister of Canada, Trudeau was more than happy to co-opt the #MeToo movement, even writing an essay urging all parents to raise their sons as feminists. Per Breitbart:
“[O]ur sons have the power and the responsibility to change our culture of sexism,” Trudeau wrote, adding, “Our sons have the power and the responsibility to change our culture of sexism.”
Trudeau plans to make gender equality a "top priority" at this week's G7 summit.
