Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had a “blackface” incident pop up in the news late last week. Then another. Then a third. He apologized. He Tweeted out a picture of him shaking hands with a person of color. And just like that, the story was gone.
As the radical progressive politician takes cues from his handlers to lay low for a while, mainstream media has moved on, as instructed. A search on CNN’s homepage reveals zero stories about Trudeau despite the story being relatively fresh. Same thing with MSNBC. Washington Post’s homepage yields zero results. There IS a story on the NY Times homepage… buried way at the bottom, they ran a story of Canadians and forgiveness regarding their leader.
The reason we’re hearing nothing is because they did their obligatory coverage when it broke, then Standard Operating Procedure kicked in. “In cases of a radical progressive champion’s disgrace, cover for ‘fairness’ then bury at the first possible opportunity. Distract and redirect in the meantime.”

Fox News covered it today, pointing out the conspicuous double standard in media’s coverage…
Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren called out the media for an apparent double standard in the coverage of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s blackface scandal, accusing some journalists of holding only Republicans “accountable for their mistakes.”
“Both Virginia’s governor and Lieutenant Governor were involved in blackface-related situations and yet, both are still in office,” she said, referring to VA Gov. Ralph Northam and VA Attorney General Mark Herring, both of whom were involved in scandals of their own.
Last week, a new picture and video surfaced showing Trudeau wearing blackface, in the third such incident to emerge in 24 hours. One of the photos showed a costumed Trudeau darkened by makeup for an “Arabian Nights” gala he attended in 2001.
There are few things funnier (or sadder) than watching mainstream media squirm to cover for progressives when they’re caught doing bad things. If Donald Trump or Scott Morrison did what Justin Trudeau did, it would be nonstop coverage for weeks.
