Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pushed back Thursday on assertions of misconduct dating from a music festival in British Columbia in 2000, saying he was confident he “did not act inappropriately” at the event. Discussion about the incident had arisen in Canadian political circles in response to the resurfacing of an unsigned editorial in the Creston Valley Advance, a local British Columbia newspaper.
In the editorial, a then 28-year old Trudeau is quoted as apologizing to a reporter of the paper (a woman who remains unidentified) for “handling,” stating that if he had known she was “reporting for a national newspaper, I never would have been so forward.”
Addressing the public conversation about the incident for the second time on Thursday, Trudeau acknowledged that the individual in question may have experienced the interaction “very differently.” When originally addressing reports of the incident on Sunday, Trudeau stated that he didn’t remember any “negative interactions” from the music festival almost twenty years ago, despite having been quoted as apologizing to an anonymous individual.
Trudeau did acknowledge the apology described in the original piece, stating that he had “apologized in the moment” without going into detail about what he was apologizing for.
Trudeau has built a reputation in Canadian politics and internationally as a supporter of feminist and social justice causes, even going so far as to insist that a young female Canadian asking him a question at a public event rephrase her use of the term “mankind” as “peoplekind.” Trudeau’s dismissal of a plausible claim of abuse- in this case described originally as “inappropriate handling” stands at odds with his approach towards other individuals accused of misconduct.
In January, Kent Hehr, a member of the Canadian Parliament who served as the Minister of Veteran’s Affairs in Trudeau’s Cabinet, was forced to resign after making suggestive comments to a woman in an elevator. Trudeau accepted his resignation, stating that as Prime Minister he “would take any allegations of misconduct extremely seriously, and we believe that it is important to support women who come forward with allegations and that is exactly what our government will do.”
It remains to be what exactly Trudeau’s government will do in response to the allegations directed against Trudeau himself.
President Donald Trump to Hold “Tremendous” MAGA Rally in Georgia for GOP Senators
Georgia has a runoff election for two US Senator seats.
President Donald Trump announced that he’ll be holding a ‘Make America Great Again’ rally in the state of Georgia on Saturday, while speaking from the White House on Thanksgiving.

The President confirmed that the final outcome of the 2020 presidential election is “far from over,” with litigation still pending in Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Pennsylvania.
Saturday night’s rally will be held in an open-air venue such as an airport in order to minimize exposure to coronavirus.
Two US Senate seats are up for contention in Georgia in a January special election. Senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler will face radical pro-amnesty Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, a minister known for his association with anti-white ideology.
Dubious political operatives and the mainstream media have been salivating over the notion that Republicans would decline to vote in the Georgia runoff on the basis of dissatisfaction with current pending Georgia presidential election results. Both the President and Donald Trump Jr. have rejected such a notion, emphasizing the need for Republicans to keep the Senate regardless of the status of litigation inquiries into voter fraud.
That is NONSENSE.
IGNORE those people.

Senator Perdue has one of the strongest ‘MAGA’ track records of any Republican Senator in the Trump era, sponsoring the RAISE Act to cut annual immigration levels with Senator Tom Cotton.
Throwback to President Trump and the White House endorsing the RAISE Act, a bill that would reduce the amount of legal immigration coming into this country.
The bill was proposed by Senators Tom Cotton & David Perdue.

No matter what the final result of the 2020 election is adjudicated as, Donald Trump and the ‘MAGA’ movement he founded are simply not going away.
