In the immortal words of western philosopher DJ Khalid, “…and another one!” On Wednesday, a photo resurfaced of our favourite pile of feelings and hair product, Justin “I Feel Pretty” Trudeau. He appeared to be in brownface while performing Aladdin. Now, it seems, performing in blackface was his thing back in the day. Because a SECOND photo has surfaced.
Exclusive. Sources have confirmed to me that this is THE picture of @JustinTrudeau in blackface from high school that he referenaced in his press conference. From the year book at Brebeuf college. #cdnpoli He is singing Day Oh apparently. pic.twitter.com/ivBPoxbXi8

For those unfamiliar with the song:
Here’s where it gets fun. Do I personally care about the photos? Not really. Outside of course for the easy content. It’s our favourite world leader on which to dunk. Trudeau in blackface is like Boxing Day and the Raptors winning the NBA title all rolled into one. If we’re going to be on the right side of history by standing opposed to “cancel culture,” we should be consistent. If it’s not right to attack someone for things that happened 10-20 years ago when it’s someone we like, we shouldn’t do it when it’s someone we think is a poutine douchesandwich.
However, we didn’t start this. The left has been setting the rules of engagement for at least ten years now. Any day to make them choke on their own BS is a great day to be alive.
