#FHRITP revisited: Trudeau not as quick to condemn Soudas's crude tweet

Brian LilleyArchive

After a female reporter made international news for confronting the men who were harassing her, Justin Trudeau responded there should be "zero tolerance" for vile, sexually charged comments.

However, someone on Trudeau's side -- Dimitri Soudas -- just hinted, via Twitter, that the Conservative's female campaign manager had a venereal disease.

Those sorts of locker room "jokes" are unparliamentary, to say the least.

But why was Trudeau so quick to condemn crude, sexist comments in one case but not the other?

And why doesn't the rest of the media call him out on this hypocrisy as well?

I do expect a level of intelligence and real leadership skills that are warranted for the top position in Canadian politics. I think JT would be better suited to sit on the SCOC, with the other communist clowns. It would be a much better fit for this part-time nobody.

Did you really expect consistency?

The problem is the media party will simply continue to ignore the reality of Justin and the low info voter will simply support this trash in order for them to enjoy Trudeau’s pro-pot, poverty(more taxes – carbon tax) and prostitution policies.

Well I won’t defend what Dimitri said but defend his right to say it and for the rest of us to condemn him for saying it. Back to you Justin Trudeau! Are you really going to stand up for women or are you going to stand up for certain women?

Raised with a silver spoon in his mouth, never worried about making his power bill, a failed drama teacher, runs on Daddy’s reputation and more.

Why would I not be surprised at the reaction or rather the "non reaction of this entitled person who is entitled to his entitlements?

troodo is so boxed in with his failed ideas – the few that he has – that I think troodo is giving up.

troodo the liar, hypocrite and all around communist pig – this is his platform. It is the best he can do.

Lieberals do not like being held accountable. Accountability is only applicable when it can be used to disparage someone else.
