Trudeau Tatoo'd by Me Too

Trudeau groped her in 2000. He must have been, what, like 5 at the time?

That's Canada's problem. Trump is our problem, though that doesn't serve your desires for misdirection, equivalency and projection.

You did notice that this was the "Global Discussion" section of the forum, right? Its not the "Finn wants to change the subject of every thread to Trump" section.

So, the socalled leader of the free world isn't a player on the world stage? I can see why you don't want anyone to talk about your *resident Pussy Grabber, Mike. I'd be embarrassed too if I had to defend a crook like Derp Donald.

Pretty lame attempt to defend a case of deflection and false equivalence. There you go again applying different standards to different forum members.

Once again, you resort to lies when called out. Sure must suck to be you Mike.

In other words, there's nothing worthy of discussion here other than Whell's desire to somehow extricate Trump from his sexual assault and campaign finance problems at the expense of Trudeau. Fail.

Nah. What's failing is your desire to employ a false equivalence in this thread.

Love this article:

https://www.vice.com/en_ca/article/7...gation-scandal

Justin Trudeauís attempt to build a political brand on the premise that he is the only non-shitty man ever to live has finally crashed up against the rocks of actual reality. We all make mistakes: sexism has its hooks deep inside all of us. But you also have to own your past ethical failures if you are going to appoint yourself the Grand Inquisitor of sexual harassment. He expelled two MPs from caucus in 2014 at the first hint of sexual impropriety, and routinely justified shooting first and questioning later as the only appropriate response to such allegations from truly committed feminists. Of course, it turns out now that this standard apparently applies to everyone but the prime minister.

Trudeau would be well advised not to wear a heavy crown unless his spine is strong enough to support it. Otherwise, it will start to appear to others that he was always more concerned with a branding exercise than a substantive commitment to justice.


But since you brought it up, Finn:

It always cracks me up that, as public a figure as Trump was, he was never labelled a racist, homophobic or misogynist until he ran for office. Yet those labels are used almost generically by the left when discussing their political opponents. Some of you have attempted to attach those labels to me, yet you know nothing at all about me.

You accuse me of "deflection" in this thread, but isn't that exactly what you're doing trying to change the topic to Trump? Some would cast that as a tacit defense of Trudeau's actions. But not me...
