Political Scientist: Trudeau ‘Blackface’ Scandal Could Cost Him the Election

Completely undermines Canadian PM’s claim to champion diversity and multiculturalism.

A political scientist predicts that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s ‘blackface’ scandal could cost him the upcoming election.

Canadians go to the polls on October 21, 2019, to elect members of the House of Commons to the 43rd Canadian Parliament. Polls show a tight race between Trudeau’s Liberal party and the opposition Conservatives.

Over the past 24 hours, two separate photos and a video have emerged of Trudeau dressing up in ‘blackface’ on three separate occasions.

In the video, Trudeau’s entire arms and legs are ‘blacked up’ as he performs exaggerated gestures in an apparent attempt to mimic or mock black people.

Another image is taken from when Trudeau performed the Banana Boat Song (Day-O) as part of a talent show in a Jamaican accent while blacked up and wearing an afro wig.

University of B.C. political scientist Max Cameron says the controversy could cost Trudeau crucial votes in key swing areas due to “diverse” voters being put off by his past behavior.

“There are many ridings where the margin of victory is very narrow,” Cameron told the Vancouver Sun. “In the context where every vote matters this could have a real impact.”

“Is this something you can come back from?” asked Cameron. “He embodies white privilege and he should have known better.”

The political scientist said the blackface issue completely undermines Trudeau’s virtue signalling about diversity and multiculturalism.

“This is a real dent in the strongest part of his armor,” he said.

Trudeau’s approval rating was already sinking thanks to a corruption scandal. He could now be finished.

The world’s tiniest violin plays.

CNN Suggests Kamala Harris Will be President When Biden Decides to “Step Aside”

Not exactly a ringing endorsement of Uncle Joe’s longevity.

Within hours of the announcement that Kamala Harris would be Joe Biden’s running mate, CNN published an article asserting that Harris would be able to take on the presidency if and when Biden decides to “step aside.”

“Joe Biden made the pick that maximized his chances of continuing to make the race a straight referendum on Trump while also selecting someone whose resume suggests being ready to step in, if and when Biden decides to step aside,” states a tweet by CNN which links to an article by CNN editor-at-large Chris Cilizza.

The article wasn’t exactly a ringing endorsement of Biden’s stamina for four years in office.

In addition to noting that Harris at 55 is significantly younger than Biden, Cilizza notes that she will be ready and waiting to take the Oval Office hot seat if Uncle Joe bows out before his first term ends.

“What Biden did is make the pick that maximized his chances of continuing to make the race a straight referendum on Trump while also selecting someone, in Harris, whose resume suggests will be ready to step in if and when Biden decides to step aside,” he writes.

A Rasmussen poll released earlier this week found that 59 per cent of likely voters don’t think Biden will finish a single term in the White House.

Questions over Biden’s mental faculties have dogged his entire campaign, with the former Vice President committing numerous verbal slip-ups as campaign managers try to keep him out of the public eye as much as possible.

Joe Biden was threatened into picking Kamala Harris as his running mate by Democratic operatives who specifically told him that if he didn’t pick a black woman for the role, he would lose the election.

According to a POLITICO report earlier this week, panic set in among Democrats when Biden held a meeting with Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, clearly seeing her as a candidate for the role.

“He better pick a Black woman. If he picks Gretchen, he’ll lose Michigan,” commented Virgie Rollins, the chair of the Democratic National Committee’s Black Caucus.

Rollins reasoned that Whitmer isn’t appealing to the black community in Michigan.

“There are a lot of Black people mad at her [Whitmer] in this state,” Rollins stated, citing the Flint water debacle.

Whitmer has also become highly unpopular among a large portion of voters due to her draconian coronavirus lockdown policies.

Among other questionable actions, the governor used the State’s emergency alert system to order residents to wear face masks, after issuing an executive order mandating the masks.

Whitmer also called small business owners “racist” and “neo Nazis” for protesting her lockdown orders.

The Democratic operatives in Biden’s ear seemingly convinced him that the only way to secure swing voters in key states is to have a black woman standing behind him.

“As Biden prepares to announce his choice this week, Black women activists and operatives have launched an eleventh-hour campaign to pressure him. In a pair of open letters Monday and last week, they made the case that he needs strong African American turnout in swing states like Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania to win,” POLITICO noted.

California Senator Kamala Harris likely wasn’t even the first choice of black women, with multiple reports suggesting that former Obama administration United Nations ambassador Susan Rice was the favourite. For whatever unknown reason, that didn’t pan out, so Biden picked Harris instead, a choice that already has many Americans worried, given her track record, and Biden’s deteriorating state.

Poll: Majority of Americans Think Biden Unlikely to Finish 4 Year Term in White House

In another illustration of how many Americans are concerned about Joe Biden’s advancing age and declining mental faculties, a new Rasmussen poll has found that 59 per cent of likely voters don’t believe he’ll finish a 4 year term in the White House.

Broken down along party lines, 74 per cent of Republicans believe Biden won’t make it through his first term while 49 per cent of Democrats agree.

Just 14% of voters think it’s “not at all likely” that Biden’s running mate will become president before his first term ends.

Questions about Biden’s age and his alleged cognitive decline have dogged his campaign for months.

During an interview last week, Biden once again stumbled over his words while trying to assert that he didn’t need to be mentally tested.

Polls show that 38 per cent of American voters think Biden has “some form of dementia,” including one in five Democrats. 61 per cent of voters also think Biden should address the dementia issue publicly.

If the majority opinion holds true and Biden wins the election, that means his running mate is virtually guaranteed to become president before 20204.

The current favorites to become Biden’s VP pick are Kamala Harris and Susan Rice, although Michelle Obama is still listed as an outsider by many political betting websites.
