Up to this point, I have not thought Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should be “fried” for his groping of a young reporter at a music festival in the B.C. interior nearly two decades ago.
But that changed with his outrageous and infuriating remarks about the “Kokanee Grope” while attending the Calgary Stampede last week.
Sure, all along the PM’s hypocrisy has been gagging. And I have commented on the glaring double standard. Sexual assault experts and Liberal-friendly media outlets have made excuses for their boy’s behaviour that they would have crucified a Conservative politician for.
But until Friday’s remarks, I had mostly left Trudeau’s actions alone. No longer.
Responding to reporters’ questions, Trudeau tried to move from being the victimizer to portraying himself as a noble martyr who is going to make us all better through his enlightened example.
“We’ve all been reflecting on past behaviours,” Trudeau told reporters. “There is a collective awakening going on and we need to take opportunities to reflect on it.”
What!? “We?” What “we?”
Listen buddy, I didn’t grope anybody. I then didn’t set myself up as the Virtue-Signaller-in-Chief, as our first “feminist” prime minister, as Captain Zero-Tolerance. So, don’t try to minimize your bad behaviour and save your political skin by roping in everyone else in Canada.
