Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has denied allegations that he groped a reporter at a festival in 2000.

The event in Creston, British Columbia, was held to raise money for an avalanche safety charity with which Mr Trudeau was involved.

Days afterwards, an unsigned editorial appeared in a local paper accusing him of "groping" a young female reporter.
The prime minister said he did not recall any "negative interactions" at the event.

Speaking to reporters in Regina, Saskatchewan while on a three-city Canada Day tour, Mr Trudeau said he remembered the day in Creston well.

"I had a good day that day," he said. "I don't remember any negative interactions that day at all."

The editorial and its allegations resurfaced after a blogger posted an image of the article on Twitter in June.

Nice.

I have no particular sympathy for Trudeau, but so far these are just allegations by a single individual. Impossible to say at this point whether there's any truth to it.

Agreed.

Nevertheless, other allegations, similar in nature, and about as distant in the past, have ruined careers.

"In dubio pro reo" may sound like an outdated concept in the age of #metoo, but I think it should still very much apply.

That said, I'd probably cuckle if those allegations can be substantiated and, of all people, Trudeau is shamed.
It'd look something like this.

I'm fine with saying Bill was a sleaze. Because, yeah, absolutely he was.

You willing to say the same about Trump?

JFK was probably the worst, or at least the worst from what we know. Trump isn't different; our social values are different.
As a good person, I implore you to do as I, a good person, do. Be good. Do NOT be bad. If you see bad, end bad. End it in yourself, and end it in others. By any means necessary, the good must conquer the bad. Good people know this. Do you know this? Are you good?

If it's true, sure.

What I won't do is ignore facts that don't fit my side. Because that's tiresome and stupid.

So that's Clinton, Jefferson, JFK and Eisenhower. How many more are you going to put in front of Trump so you can hide from answering? Or are we ready to move on to making **** up to make reality fit our worldview?

See this is why things are so stupid. I can't take anyone's analysis of tariffs seriously when they explain away "grab them by the pussy" as something that's not only no big deal, but that he obviously didn't mean it or even more ludicrous, everyone in the world objectifies the opposite sex with disgusting commentary so it's okay.

Nobody's perfect, and no one is put under more scrutiny than a US President. So I really don't get the big deal of admitting when they screw up or have character flaws. I don't understand the pretending this isn't so but it makes me ignore everything else.

The thing is I believe you are the one who is pretending.

If Mr. Trump has actually accosted someone then let's hear about it.

Did he use locker room banter talking to a guy in a private conversation many, many years ago?

Yes, I heard him do it.

Did he explain his motive for doing this and apologize? Yes.

Was it a stupid, rude, impolite thing to do a long, long time ago? Sure, of course.

Did he actually accost a woman those many, many years ago? I don't think so, but I haven't read everything available on the subject.

Have we had this same conversation at least a dozen times now? Maybe.

So next time when you say that everyone is denying Mr. Trump's impolite behavior you can refer back to these repeated non-denials, or not. Mr. Trump's documented actions concerning this behavior will probably be about the same.

And what was the last guy? A bi-racial, bisexual, dope-smoking socialist who married a beard, muscled her into a high-paying job doing nothing at a Chicago hospital, using Chicago strong arm politics. A sorry bastard who couldn't pass the bar exam, a Constitutional scholar who disregarded it, a scholarship student who wouldn't release his transcript. A mighty executive who once totally disregarded the legislative process, who informed us he had a pen and was willing to subvert the Will of the people with it, if need be.

And I don't know if the man was a closet Muslim, but he damn sure kept his ass glued to the pew, while his pastor screamed God Damn America! from the pulpit.

So now, you want to rain on Trump because he chased some tail, even while married, possibly even using wealth and power to get some? Oh my giddy aunt, what a naive critter you are. Grow up, and realize ain't nobody perfect, there's only different shades of sin and ineptitude. If you really wanted a serial liar, con artist, known criminal and all around absolute bitch in the White House, you should have voted for Hillary.

Heh... he groped me too...

Now that's 2 people making the allegation, so he must be guilty. Right?
Identifying narcissists isn't difficult. Just look for the person who is constantly fishing for compliments
and admiration while breaking down over even the slightest bit of criticism.

The clear difference between Clinton and Trump in this case is when and where the events took place. Is Trump a sleaze? Probably. As long as it doesnít affect his presidency I donít really care.
