Mortifying: Media Invents So Many Convoluted Euphemisms to Protect Justin Trudeau From the Charge of "Blackfase" That Trudeau Himself Is Forced to Correct Them and Say "It's Blackface, Guys"



Incredible.

The guy they were trying to protect with euphemisms and evasions had to tell them that their euphemisms and evasions on his behalf were embarrassing and wrong.

Some called it "skin-darkening make-up." Via Twitchy, CNN called it "Darkface," like he was just dressing up as a C-level Batman villain.

Slate showed why they're Slate and called it, "dressing up like Aladdin."

Twitchy points out that Slate seems to be actively trying to mislead its readers into thinking this is the picture of Trudeau "dressing up as Aladdin:"



Justin Trudeau had to chide them to stop spinning on his behalf.


As you certainly know by now, the Canadian Minister of Cultural Appropriation and Pageantry has now been confirmed as having worn blackface three times. Once was in high school -- though I don't remember blackface being acceptable in 1997 or whatever -- and the next incident was in college, and the next one when he was an adult teaching at a school.

Below, he's playing a character that... well, you be the judge. This isn't dressing up as Aladdin or Michael Jackson or someone; this is just doing a crude "Sambo" type character.


Now, I'm sure you're all wondering, "What does CNN's accused-gay-sexual-assaulter and known racist Don Lemon say about all this?"

Well, he didn't disappoint.

He took the opportunity to praise Trudeau and attack Trump.

You know, the guy who didn't wear blackface.

"Wow, a leader apologizing. It seems odd, doesn't it?" Lemon reacted. "Because we have one who doesn't."

The CNN panel also offered a defense for Trudeau, with commentators stressing that "context matters" -- according to them, Trudeau's photo was vastly different from Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's 1986 blackface photo.

Before wrapping up the segment, however, Lemon reiterated his praise for Trudeau.

"I do have to say this before we go: think about it however you want to think about it. When someone apologizes- wow!" Lemon said to the panel. "We don't often see that here, especially in a world leader who is saying 'I should've known better and I'm sorry.' You can feel about it however you want, but that, to me, that does mean a lot."

Don Lemon got so excited by the apology that he stuck his hand into his own grundle, got some stank on it, and then rubbed it all over Brian Stelter's pudgy pumpkin face.

Update: Heh.
