A new video has caught Canada's liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in blackface – showing him wearing racist garb for the third time in 12 hours.

The video, shot in the early 90s, shows the future political dynamo laughing while practically coated in blackface. (Global News)
 

Global News initially obtained the video from a source earlier this week but had been attempting to verify it before publishing. A senior member of the Liberal campaign confirmed it was Trudeau early Thursday morning but would not comment further, simply referring Global News back to Trudeau’s comments on the matter from Wednesday evening. The source did not shoot the video but Global News subsequently reached the person believed to have shot the video. That person would not confirm or deny that it was Trudeau in the video or the time and place of the video.

The few frames of video are the third such instance of Trudeau in brown or blackface to come out in fewer than 24 hours.

The first, released by Time magazine, shows Trudeau in 2001 at an “Arabian Nights”-themed gala held by the West Point Grey Academy, the private school in British Columbia where he worked as a teacher. The school declined to comment.

The second instance, which he admitted to while apologizing for the first, is a photo of him at a high school talent show performing the song Day-O “with makeup on.” Global News has not confirmed that this photo is the one referred to by Trudeau Wednesday night.


Trudeau, long seen as an aspirational figure by progressives worldwide, recently admitted to groping a female reporter in 2000, claiming he wouldn't have been "so forward" if he had known her profession.
