What blows me away is the number of people willing to give him a pass on this. Yes he apologized and perhaps he was sincere however only AFTER it came out, what else could he do. He was about 29 years old and a TEACHER in one of the photos, some example to his students. This is a pattern of behavior of making poor choices like the fiasco in India for instance. I don’t want a PM like that. Do Canadians feel comfortable when he represents them. He may have his faults. But, next to what we have in the US, Trudeau looks like a saint. Just remember that a lot of people voted for our conservative President and he and his GOP allies in our Congress have turned our country into a stressed-out mess. We don’t know what asinine thing they will do next to make people ashamed of our government. Trudeau may have a few skeletons in his closet. But, you had better be sure that you aren’t getting something far worse if you vote him out. Many Americans deeply regret that we ended up in a no-win election last time and we feel like victims in a political game. You worry about too much about something as insignificant as blackface. How would like to have a President who is senile. How can any of us live as productive adults if we are being held to the most unrealistic standards.. we are all human! We make mistakes, those mistakes don’t necessarily define us for the rest of our entire lives. We grow, mature and evolve. we learn lessons along the way which help determine the adults we will eventually become. I don’t think he needs to apologize as such incidents happened a long time ago. People change their views overnight and this means whether such incidents were intentional or not that people correct their behavior over time. I respect this guy very much and think he is truly sincere.
