(NSFW) It's real, and it's disastrous: Justin Trudeau's photo with topless teen girl more evidence of poor judgment, immaturity

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Justin Trudeau is entering middle age, but he plays up his sexuality and youthfulness. Photos of Justin at last week's Vancouver's Pride Parade show him hugging young, scantily clad, tattooed women. Now a photo taken at last year's Toronto Pride Parade has surfaced, showing Justin with a topless woman who looks about 18.


Sure, it's legal for women in Ontario to take their shirts off in public.

But what does this say about Justin's judgement? His attitudes towards women?

And yes, the photo is real and isn't Photoshopped. That's been confirmed by the Liberal Party itself.

So now that we know it isn't fake, what does it say about those Liberal supporters who insisted it was? Now what?

And more importantly, how will average voters react?

Speaking of poor judgement, word today from Kory Teneycke that supporters at Harper events will be allowed to take pictures. Up until now they have had to promise not to. They should have stuck to their first instinct that any picture of Harper is worse than no picture. Next watch for Harper posing beside a topless Naheed Nenshi in Calgary.

Vladimir Putin and ISIS must be falling out of their chairs laughing at the Canadian left that is actually going to vote for the Liberals.

David Gagnon – And was it reaching when Trudeau stopped ON THE WAY IN to St. James Cathedral, Toronto and posed for a photo with a fan? Let me refresh your memory – this was when he attended the State Funeral of Jim Flaherty. It wasn’t after the service and away from the Church – it was a few yards away from the front door of the Church.

You are a complete retard if you actually think this is anything even remotely close to child pornography.
commented 2015-08-08 22:41:04 -0400
Jimmy is a stereotypical Liberal. What Trudeau is in a picture that amounts to child pornography? No biggie. Liberals only have standards for their enemies. Not themselves.
commented 2015-08-08 22:30:52 -0400
And Jimmy misses the mark again… No surprise there.

I am quite sure that those personal attacks against Harper are completely valid. Ezra’s trying to make something out of nothing again.
commented 2015-08-08 21:22:24 -0400
Have a peek at the CBC comment board folks….the most vile, personal attacks against Stephen Harper….. Ezra points out another egregious example of poor judgement and behaviour not becoming of a wanna-be Prime Minister – the left goes bazerk.

Boo-hoo….let me get my hankie for you guys.
commented 2015-08-08 17:07:31 -0400
I hope even the stupid see through this. Nothing like pretending to be an objective website while being a conservative site! Love it.. Good job! I hope the boy with great hair beats you all!

Thanks for proving that you are just a sheep and you eat up bullshit attack ads against Trudeau where his quotes are completely taken out of context – since you pretty much just quoted the attack ads here.

It is very sad state where we are in Canada. It reminds me to the boiled frog syndrome. The heat is getting higher and higher slowly so we can not see that we are being cooked. Seems like a populist politician (if you can call him politician) like Justin Trudeau can even be considered for PM of Canada without any substance (the budget will self-correct itself), misguided beliefs and comments (his most admired country is China – not Canada or God forbid the USA), just to mention a few of the many. It curls my hair frequently when I hear his reasoning (or lack of it). Trudeau relies on his sexy looks and hair as if they were sufficient to lead one of the most developed countries on the earth. He would be nowhere if his name were not Trudeau. But what does one expect from a substitute drama teacher who creates his own drama and flair. It is sad but I have to say it: most of the voters are not informed, have low information and tend to make judgement based on what most of the press present even the information is biased or untrue in a spectrum. To me Ezra says the way it is and it irritates many people due to their political leaning regardless whether it is true or not.
commented 2015-08-08 11:35:18 -0400
I am not surprised that Ezra doesn’t understand that things like this – actually make Justin even more popular and that it shows people that he is just an easy going normal guy. Not an uptight robot like Stephen Harper. This isn’t disastrous at all – Trudeau scored points here.
commented 2015-08-08 10:50:41 -0400
What I took from this story, is the fact that Trudeau is relying on his photo ops and flair and style to raise his popularity. That worked. So let’s nominate him for MVP in Men’s Health or something. But is that the dominating quality that most Canadians want in their Prime Minister? I for one think it’s just self-serving showmanship with little substance in the political arena! How’s Trudeau going to balance the budget? Does he have any plans other than “the budget will balance itself”? How does he plan to raise our dying economy? There are so many other questions that he has no answers to.

A good leader would HAVE answers. Not be posing with every bag of flesh alive to garner votes. That’s the underlying point in this.
commented 2015-08-08 10:45:43 -0400
I am surprised Justin’s Mother hasn’t posted. I don’t know how Ezra could be so mean!

You are right Mark, the onslaught of negative publicity towards the Conservatives and PM Harper has been unprecedented. In fact it is an insult to all of us Canadians who are Conservative voters, we are all being demonized by the left mob mentality. Good post Mark.
commented 2015-08-08 07:13:58 -0400
MARK GODDARD, you got it – of course they’re missing the point. They fail to recognize every blatant provocation Ezra throws out and they swallow the hook, line, and sinker, every time. And of course, they end up flopping and gasping on the bank. Every time.
commented 2015-08-08 03:12:38 -0400
You are all missing the point here. Ezra is going over the top here because he is countering all the flowery pro-Trudeau propaganda from the media party who abuse the power of the so called free press by giving Trudeau lots of coverage and publicity in a positive light while stonewalling Conservative strong points. And they nit-pick and exaggerate the significance of every single thing PM Harper does. The latest example is how they blamed him for “the longest and most expensive campaign in Canadian history”. The onslaught of negative publicity towards the Conservatives and PM Harper has been unprecedented because PM Harper is the first PM that has to deal with the internet and social media and the mob mentality it can generate and he has to deal with a pro-Liberal Canadian Press and media.
The Liberals were in power for so many years that their political and cultural influence became woven into the fabric of Canadian society. Combined with a growing new modern age, this was to become Canada. I recall voting for Trudeau senior because he was young and hip and quick witted and as a young man I did not really understand politics and so voted with whom impressed me the most. So Trudeau Jr. is fallowing in his dads footsteps and hoping to get that same kind of support. I don`t even think Ezra really is as outraged as he appears and is only laying it on thick because that is all I ever hear on the radio or read in the paper. Attack after attack after attack on PH Harper and the Conservatives. Do these morons not realize that they are actually attacking their fellow Canadians who support the Conservatives? This is a civilized country and people must always act civil with each other.
The Conservative majority government upset the long entrenched and imbedded Liberal party of Canada empire that had been building for many years. Canadians were complacent for the most part during the Liberal years and many people never bothered to vote. But the Liberals became bloated and corrupted and wasteful and complacent and then pulled a major political blunder with the gun control act. A political blunder that was never admitted to by the Liberals or their friends in the media. The Liberals are still paying the price for the biggest witch hunt in Canadian history. They should never form a government again as punishment for betraying the people of Canada. Canadians do not want a totalitarian government nor a totalitarian leader like Jean Chretien.

What a bizarre rant, Ezra Levant. Yes, Trudeau looks youthful and sexy and young woman seem attracted to him. Is that a weakness on his part? You don’t have that youthful flair, it’s true, but people don’t make fun of you for that reason (do they?) Harper certainly does not have that flair and he knows it.
Rather than focussing on Justin Trudeau’s looks and his hairstyle, why not respond to what he wants to talk about—the economy and a sounder future for the nation? You remind me of a high school kid who is jealous of the boy who gets the girls.
commented 2015-08-08 01:09:39 -0400
What I see in Ezra Levant is a self-styled intellectual who is trying hard not to show that he just hates Justin Trudeau on an irrational level, so he offers this poorly constructed argument. He offers absolutely no insight on Trudeau, but he clearly reveals himself as a man who sat on the sidelines most of his life while the more confident and hip guys got the girls. This little video is nothing but a bitter rant. You’ve violated the number one journalistic law….don’t make it personal. Clearly this is nothing but personal. I can’t say I’m crazy about Trudeau, but look at the disaster that is Harper. He inherited an incredibly well-positioned country from Chretien/Martin and took credit for avoiding the US bank disaster of 2008, when in fact it was entirely Paul Martin’s refusal to deregulate the banks in the nineties that saved us from this disaster. Harper then placed all his eggs in the oil/mining/resources sectors of Alberta and now has a country in recession due to the drop in oil prices and cyclical drop in mining. Harper is nothing but a complete and bumbling fool. I may give Trudeau my vote just to get some fresh blood in Ottawa. In the meantime Ezra, get some therapy. I feel bad for your wife for having to endure your bitterness and latent misogyny.

This is nothing to do with the “young lady”. All to do with optics for a potential PM.
commented 2015-08-07 22:55:59 -0400
Ezra, I am an 82 year old male and you are a self righteous “Dink”. I would welcome and jump to the opportunity of being photographed with a bold, beautiful and scantily clad young lady as would every red blooded Canadian male I know. If present, my wife would smile and cheer the occasion. There is nothing, and by that I mean; absolutely zero suggestion of any sexual impropriety, no inappropriate touching, the only disgusting thing is your interpretation of what the “cropped” photo shows. Might it be the smiles on the faces of the surrounding crowd you are trying to hide.
In response to some other critics, perhaps you haven’t seen the photos of Prince William and His lovely bride walking topless in the garden?
I’m really sick of the trash I get on face book so in an effort to reduce it, I have blocked anything you have to say from my inbox. Get out your matches, perhaps we should consider burning the young lady on a stake?

Not at all Jason, its more turdo’s lack of a governor. How many heads of state from countries around the world do you see posing with bare breasted women. You may be comfortable with it, but when dealing effectively on the world stage, as he would have to do if he became PM, it could be frowned upon or cause him to lose credibility.
Just not a very grown up look on the world stage.
commented 2015-08-07 21:16:47 -0400
As a woman I find this offensive. I realize that in Canada we can now, as women, go topless because apparently there is no difference between men’s breasts and womens’ breasts. Except there are. Women’s breasts produce milk, men’s don’t. I am not sure why we, as women want to go around showing our breasts to the general public to show we are equal. Want to show you are equal? Enroll into Law School or Engineering School where more than physical attributes prove you are equal.
commented 2015-08-07 21:07:30 -0400
Is this a joke? Really Ezra, you call yourself a human rights activist? Attacking a politician because he’s popular with the youth? Because he wears one more button open than you do on his shirt? Next you’ll be telling him to get a haircut, and ushering those young women back into the kitchen where they belong. Yikes.
commented 2015-08-07 20:26:12 -0400
Amber if you get your wish, will you please come back to share. I’d like to know how its working for you.
18 is still a teenager, not under age.
Sexualizing breasts?
You think Trudeau looks shameful?
Not me, pathetic is the word I would use. I would also use that word for any young woman who bares her breasts for pic’s with politicians. You may think that is empowerment. Whether she has the legal right to do so or not, empowerment would not be the word I would use.
commented 2015-08-07 20:08:57 -0400
“Exactly. It’s easier than real journalism.”
Seems to be good bait though – he hooks you every time, TERRY RUDDEN.
commented 2015-08-07 20:06:13 -0400
But I suppose Harper making out with Marg the Warrior Princess or Harper asking Avery Adams if “she likes handcuffs” with a big shit eating grin isn’t inappropriate. Oh thank christ we have Ezra to be the answer to the question nobody asked.
commented 2015-08-07 20:03:03 -0400
First, you are making an assumption of the age of this girl, almost insinuating that she is underage.
Second, that girl has the right to be topless is she chooses. Another way of looking at this photo is that Justin Trudeau respects and supports the equal rights of women. You are sexualizing female breasts to make Justin Trudeau look shameful. I, for one, would love to have a prime minister who is more open minded and willing to make changes and adjust attitudes in a changing world.
Finally, please do not try to undermine my generation. I am a young woman and myself as well as all of my friends are passionate about the future of Canada and are ready for a much needed change. I will be at the polls in October with an educated vote, not based on propaganda but on the platforms of the party leaders.
commented 2015-08-07 19:53:17 -0400
Give me a break, so now our politicians have to pose with bare breasted teenagers to look cool and relaxed? Don’t think that is going to stick. You can’t fix stupid.

Terry Rudden said: “Had it been a “conservative minded individual” who’s civil and relaxed enough to pose with a young woman at a huge public gathering, obviously at her request, then no-one would blink an eye.” If it were only the public at large, not enfluenced by outside partisan hacks, I would agree with you. However we have a rabid Socialist Media who take upon themselves to castigate anything of a conservative nature any chance they get. I remember all too well “wafergate” some years ago when the media went after Mr. Harper for accepting a communion wafer at a church down east somewhere. That went on for months until they realized they were getting no more traction with it, and it was quietly dropped. Without any apology or retraction I might add. The whole “story” was designed to make Mr. Harper, a conservative, look back in the eyes of the public. Regrettably, much of the public does not engage critical thinking and accepts these stories at face value. That is why, your comment notwithstanding, would never pass muster in the eyes of the media who would pounce on it to discredit that unfortuneate individual regardless of that individual’s intentions or motives.
