PM Trudeau’s responses to interview questions by the CBC and CP24 today were border line ridiculous and insulting to the intelligence of Canadians. It seems he is taking on his drama school teacher persona to cover up his messes.
The Groping Allegation
In a CBC Interview today, PM Trudeau was asked “if you didn’t do anything wrong, why did you apologize?”
It seems like a reasonable, even hard hitting question. However, the question is based on the false premise that PM Trudeau actually apologized. The apology posited by the CBC’s question, even by PM Trudeau’s recollection, never happened.
By all accounts: the young female reporter, who recounted the events at the time; and, PM Trudeau who can’t remember anything, say that Trudeau never apologized for inappropriate conduct with the young female reporter.
To the contrary, all Trudeau said was: “I’m sorry. If I had known you were reporting for a national paper, I never would have been so forward.” This is not an apology for uninvited advances against the woman. This was a “sorry I got caught”, or “I’m sorry you’re turning down my advances based on ethical standards for reporters”. (Me thinks the latter may be closest to the truth.)
When a CP24 reporter asked, “you say you were apologizing because [the young reporter] was uncomfortable. What were you uncomfortable for?” PM Trudeau responded: “People experience these things differently. She was in a professional context. Who knows where her mind was”. So much for the Trudeau Liberal Zero Tolerance Policy that women must always be believed when they come forward.
Every piece of evidence about this situation points to the female reporter being believed. Why can’t PM Trudeau just believe her when we know that : 1) the reporter’s Editor is on record for her character and that he believes her then and now 100%, and has an editorial at the time to prove it; 2) what small town reporter would make up this kind of story if she wanted to get ahead in her career . If anything such a reporter would be inclined to hide what happened in shame; 3) it’s such a random phrase for the reporter to have made up when it was quoted Trudeau said: “if I had known you were reporting for a national paper, I never would have been so forward”. It seems that most everyone believes the woman, except PM Trudeau, the one whose own Liberal policy is to believe the woman.
The CP24 reporter also asked: “Should [this be groping allegation] be investigated”. Trudeau’s response was a non-answer, on which CP24’s headlined conclusion: “Don’t investigate groping allegation from 2000, Trudeau says”.
Illegal Border Crossing into Canada
On CF24 the Interviewer asked, “it sounds like you had to school [Premiere Ford] on how the refugee, asylum seeker system works. Do you feel that [Premiere Ford] understands the [illegal immigration] file?” PM Trudeau, in a statement that didn’t sound unlike what was reported as Trudeau schooling Premiere Ford said:
“I get asked [this a lot]. Why don’t we just prevent people from coming [over the border] illegally. The answer is a combination of the Charter, combination of international obligations, quite frankly due process…Every person gets processed with our full immigration measures [whether they are coming into Canada legally or illegally] …. Well, we have the Charter of Rights, the UN, and frankly due process to treat all asylum seekers regular or irregular”
Bulletin for PM Trudeau: Angela Merkel, your apparent role model and the mother of all open borders, has reached an agreement to control future illegal migrants into Germany on the German-Austrian border, and that’s while she is saddled with the pressure of European Union dictates, to which Canada doesn’t have to answer.
Don’t tell us that Canada cannot do the same to control illegal migration. It seems that in truth, the Trudeau Liberals are quite happy to live with the mess of illegal migrants flowing over our border, and consuming our tax dollars when it’s money that should be going to Canadians that we know need our help, like sick kids in the hospital needing expensive cancer drugs, and homeless elderly.
PM Trudeau needs to have his license to teach revoked.
