In 2000, Justin Trudeau groped a female reporter who was trying to interview him in Creston, B.C.
He apologized — only when he realized she wasn’t just a small-town reporter:
She also worked for big newspapers like the National Post.
We know about this because the Creston Advance newspaper wrote about it — in a news story likely by the woman herself.
Trudeau was 28 at the time, which, for many people, is when they’re getting serious about life. But Trudeau was acting like a frat boy.
And why not? Famous last name, multi-million dollar trust fund, pretty face. He partied like that deep into his thirties, and now as Prime Minister, he's notorious for skipping work.
But the media love him. So they ignore it, turn a blind eye.
This Creston groping incident would sink another politician. In fact, Trudeau himself has fired a number of Liberal MPs from his caucus for less.
The Canadian Media Party ignored the story.
But slowly, as the foreign press ate the Canadian Media Party’s lunch on this, a few Canadian reporters summoned the courage to put a question to their precious leader. But it was just stranger and stranger.
TONIGHT I'll review Trudeau's series of excuses and explanations so far. He rambles. He contradicts himself.
Trudeau is gross, like most male feminists are.
But even grosser is the media party that has enabled this, and still is doing everything they can to keep their handsy groper in power — because like Bill Clinton, what’s a few sexual assaults, if he’s “our guy”, right?
