‘The Five’ reacts to Trudeau’s blackface photo scandal


WE ARE IN NEW YORK CITY AND THIS IS “THE FIVE.” ANOTHER PROMINENT LIBERAL CAUGHT IN A RACIST PHOTO SCANDAL. CANADIAN PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU FACING A FIRESTORM OVER WEARING A BLACK FACE IN A 2001 PHOTO. IT HAPPENED DURING AN ARABIAN KNIGHT THEMED PARTY AT A SCHOOL WHERE HE WAS A 29-YEAR-OLD TEACHER. TRUDEAU APOLOGIZING LAST NIGHT BUT THEN TWO MORE EXAMPLES EMERGED. ONE FROM HOSPITAL IN THE 1990S WHERE HE IS WEARING A WIG PERFORMING A JAMAICAN FOLK SONG AT A TALENT SHOW. THE OTHER A VIDEO SHOWING HIM IN BLACK FACE WAVING HIS HANDS AROUND AND STICKING HIS TONGUE OUT. TRUDY TRUDEAU FORCE TO APOLOGY GUIDE AGAIN THIS AFTERNOON. HE HIT ALL THE LIBERAL BUZZ WORDS INTERSECTIONALITY AND UNCONSCIOUS BIAS AND HE DIDN’T RULE OUT THAT THERE COULD BE MORE PHOTOS.>>I APPRECIATE CALLING IT MAKEUP BUT IT WAS BLACK FACE. AND THAT IS JUST NOT RIGHT. I DIDN’T SEE THAT FROM THE LAYERS OF PRIVILEGE THAT I HAVE. I AM WEARY OF BEING DEFINITIVE ABOUT THIS BECAUSE THE RECENT PICTURES THAT CAME OUT I HAD NOT REMEMBERED.>>Jesse: THIS SCANDAL IS EXPOSING TRUDEAU’S OFF THE CHARTS HYPOCRISY. HE HAS FASHIONED HIMSELF AS THE PRIME MINISTER OF WOKE AND A LIBERAL FOR COUNTER WEIGHT TO PRESIDENT TRUMP. WATCH.>>I WILL KEEP SAYING I’M A FEMINIST UNTIL AS YOU SAY IT’S MET WITH YEAH, WE KNOW THAT MOVE ON. WE SHOULDN’T BE TALKING ABOUT TOLERANCE. WE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE AND FRIENDSHIP AND RESPECT.>>WE SHOULDN’T BE AFRAID OF THE WORD FEMINIST. MEN AND WOMEN SHOULD USE IT TO DESCRIBE THEMSELVES ANY TIME THEY WANT.>>THE FUTURE OF MANKIND. SO WE WOULD LIKE.>>WE LIKE TO SEE PEOPLE KIND NOT NECESSARILY MANKIND. IT’S MORE INCLUSIVE. [LAUGHTER]>>Jesse: OKAY. JEDEDIAH, WENT FROM WOKE TO A JOKE IN ABOUT ONE NIGHT AND DO YOU THINK HE CAN SURVIVE?>>Jedediah: THIS GUY IS LAYERS DEEP OF INSUFFERABLE. I MEAN, YOU KNOW, SOME POLITICIANS ARE INSUFFERABLE. THIS GUY HAS LAYERS OF IT. IT’S CRAZY TO ME THIS THIRD INSTANCE, HE WAS 29 YEARS OLD. HE WAS A TEACHER. THAT’S A GROWN MAN. THAT’S NOT A STUDENT IN HIGH SCHOOL THAT CAN YOU SAY OH, YOU KNOW, I WAS AN IDIOT KID. YOU ARE 29 YEARS OLD. YOU ARE GROWN. AND YOU STILL DON’T KNOW. MY FAVORITE PART OF THIS IS THE QUOTE HE GIVES WHEN HE SAYS I DIDN’T CONSIDER IT RACIST AT THE TIME BUT NOW WE KNOW BETTER. THAT WAS IN 2001. IN — THIS WAS NOT A PHOTO THAT SOMEBODY TOOK IN 1960 OF SOMEONE WHERE YOU COULD SAY, YOU KNOW, THE TIMES ARE DIFFERENT. PEOPLE DIDN’T REALIZE THE SEVERITY OF WHAT THEY WERE DOING. THEY DIDN’T REALIZE HOW OFFENSIVE IT WAS. IN 2001. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US AT THIS TABLE WAS AN ADULT IN 2001 WHO KNEW WELL AND GOOD ENOUGH THAT YOU DON’T PUT BLACK FACE ON AND BEHAVE THIS WAY AS A GROWN ADULT TEACHING ALSO YOU ARE A TEACHER WHAT KIND OF EXAMPLE ARE YOU SETTING? THIS GUY WITH ALL HIS P.C. NONSENSE AND ALWAYS TRYING TO SEEM SO WONDERFUL AND OH, I SUGAR COAT ALL MY WORDS NOT TO OFFEND ANYONE. HE IS BRACING US FOR MORE STUFF THAT’S COMING. HE WOULDN’T HAVE SAID THERE COULD BE MORE PHOTOS. I GUARANTEE THERE IS GOING TO SEE SOMETHING EVEN WORSE THAN THIS COMING DOWN THE PIKE.>>Jesse: SHOULD HE RESIGN, JUAN?>>Juan: NO. IT’S ALMOST LIKE AS A BLACK PERSON I SHOULD STAY OUT OF THIS CONVERSATION. I’M INTERESTED TO LEARN. BECAUSE I THINK WHAT JEDEDIAH SAID IS EXACTLY RIGHT. I THINK THAT IF YOU ARE 29 YEARS OLD, YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THINGS LIKE BIRTH OF A NATION AND MINSTREL SHOWS AND, YOU KNOW, DEPICTING THE OTHER MINORITIES AND IT COULD BE ORIENTALISM AS IT’S CALLED OR DEPICTING IRISH PEOPLE AS DRUNKS. YOU COULD GO ON WITH ALL THE LANGUAGE THAT WE IN AMERICA KNOW TOO WELL. BUT THE WHOLE IDEA IS THAT THE OTHER IS LAZY, DUMB, YOU KNOW, NOT A GOOD WORKER. NOT TO BE TRUSTED. AND IT’S ALL A BASIS FOR RACIST BEHAVIOR FOR EXCLUDING PEOPLE. AND, YOU KNOW, THE PROBLEM HERE IS I FIND IT SO INTERESTING, AS, YOU KNOW FROM, A POLITICAL ANALYST POINT OF VIEW, HE IS BEING ATTACKED IN CANADA AS NOT AS ADVERTISED. THAT IS THE SLOGAN BEING USED BY CONSERVATIVES IN CANADA TO ATTACK TRUDEAU DURING A VERY CLOSE RACE. I THINK THE ELECTION IS OCTOBER 21st. AND HE HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO MOVE AHEAD OF HIS CONSERVATIVE CHALLENGER. AND NOW THE QUESTION IS WHAT ABOUT THE LIBERALS IN CANADA? SO YOU DEPICT HIM AS A HYPOCRITE. BUT THE LIBERALS IN CANADA NOW START TO AGREE WITH THE CONSERVATIVES IN CANADA THAT WELL, MAYBE THIS GUY SHOULDN’T BE THE SWORD CARRIER FOR LIBERAL IDEOLOGY. HE PREVIOUSLY HAS MADE HIS CABINET, A CABINET THAT HE SAYS LOOKS LIKE CANADA. IT’S DIVERSE. IT’S ONE HALF WOMEN.>>Jesse: RIGHT.>>Jesse: IS HE FOR REAL?>>Jesse: YOU DON’T THINK HE SHOULD RESIGN. WHAT ABOUT IF REPUBLICAN POLITICIAN IN 2001 HAD A BLACK FACE LIKE THAT. DO YOU STILL THINK THEY SHOULD HANG ON AND FIGHT IT THE WAY TRUDEAU IS?>>Juan: NO, THAT’S A DIFFERENTIAL DYNAMIC, JESSE.>>Jesse: DIFFERENT DYNAMIC WHEN IT’S A DIFFERENT POLITICAL PARTY.>>Juan: IN THIS COUNTRY FOR SURE ARE YOU KIDDING? THAT’S WHY YOU ARE ASKING THE QUESTIONS.>>Jesse: WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS.>>Juan: REPUBLICANS WITH THIS PRESIDENT HAVE A DIFFICULT HISTORY AND DIFFERENT PATH WHEN IT COMES TO RACE.>>Jedediah: THAT’S NOT FAIR, JUAN.>>Jesse: REPUBLICAN PARTY IS THE ONE THAT FREED THE SLAVES.>>Jesse: REPUBLICAN IN ALABAMA IS STILL IN OFFICE.>>Jesse: I DISAGREE IT MATTERS IF IT’S REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT IT’S BAD NO MATTER WHICH PARTY DOES IT. DANA?>>Dana: THE ELECTION IS ALREADY VERY CLOSE. ASIDE FROM THIS INCIDENT THERE IS A BIG ETHICS SITUATION THAT’S BEEN DOGGING THE TRUDEAU INVESTIGATION FROM THE BEGINNING. SO FAR THE FRENCH MEDIA HAS STAYED VERY MUCH IN HIS CORNER. THAT’S WHERE HIS POLITICAL FOUNDATION IS UP IN THE QUEBEC AREA. REMEMBER, HE WAS KIND OF CANADA’S PRESIDENT OBAMA. HE WAS HOPE AND CHANGE. AND HE WAS THE POLITICAL DYNASTY OF THE TRUDEAUS. THE ENGLISH MEDIA, HOWEVER, IS REALLY GOING AFTER HIM VERY HARD. BUT, IF YOU THINK OF RALPH NORM, VIRGINIA, THE PEOPLE THERE HAVE PRETTY SHORT MEMORIES. IF YOU CAN ALL RIGHT STORM NORMENT IS LIKE I’M NOT REALLY SURE IF THAT’S ME. I DON’T REALLY KNOW. TRUDEAU HAS A DIFFERENT TACTIC I’M GOING TO GO ALL IN AND APOLOGIZE AND HOPE HE CAN GET THROUGH IT.>>Jesse: THAT WAS IN 18984 RALPH NORTHAM AND THIS IS IN 2001. THE SITUATION IS A LITTLE DIFFERENTIAL. WHAT DO YOU THINK HAVE YOU TRUDEAU AND SOME OF THESE HIGHLAND HOGHLAND HOLLLAND HOLLYWND HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES. ACTORS IN BLACK FACE ALWAYS THE MOST VOCAL PEOPLE WHEN ACCUSING OTHER PEOPLE OF BEING RACIST. CAN YOU ACCUSE SOMEONE OF BEING A RACIST IF YOU WEAR BLACK FACE? I DON’T THINK YOU CAN.>>Mike: IT WAS AMAZING TO WATCH THE MEDIA CONGRESS FEW AND THEN I MIGHT HAVE DONE DAO. SERIOUSLY YOU DID THE BANANA SONG? CRAZY. HE WASN’T EVEN DONE APOLOGIZING AND DON LEMON ON CNN ISN’T THAT NICE HE? APOLOGIZED. TRUMP WOULD NEVER APOLOGIZE. IT WAS INSANE. TRUMP COULD COME OUT OF A BURNING BUILDING CARRYING ORPHANS THEY WOULD BE LIKE WHY DID YOU START THE FIRE AND WHAT’S WITH THE BLACK ON THE FACE, DONALD. THE TRUDEAU THING, THERE IS MORE COMING. I GUARANTEE THERE IS MORE COMING.>>Dana: HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU DRESS UP AS AN ADULT.>>EXACTLY. BUDDY DRESSES UP LIKE A WOMAN HALLOWEEN AND DOES IT NEXT HALLOWEEN.>>Jesse: THERE IS A THING THERE.>>HE THINKS OF HIMSELF AS CANADA’S BARACK OBAMA. HE IS ACTUALLY CANADA’S BETO O’ROURKE. HE SOUNDS COMPLETELY PHONY AND/OR COMMITTEES STRAIGHTED. I DON’T BELIEVE ANYTHING HE TALKS ABOUT THIS NEED FOR DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION. I DON’T BELIEVE HIM WHEN HE SPEAKS HIS PAST AND WHAT YOU ARE SEEING AS A REALITY WHAT’S GOING ON IN HIS LIFE AS A GROWN ADULT MAN REFLECTS THAT BETO DOES THE SAME THING HERE. HE GETS UP ON THESE PODIUMS AND SAYS ALL THIS STUFF. YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE SITTING AT HOME AND SOMEBODY ELSE WROTE IT AND HE IS DELIVERING IT AND NOT AUTHENTIC. THAT’S HOW I HAVE ALWAYS FELT ABOUT THIS GUY AND HIS PAST IS PROVING IT TRUE.>>Juan: I’M ASSUMING IS HE SPEAK FROM THE HEART. I’M NOT GOING TO CALL THE GUY HYPOCRITE. HE SAYS UNCONSCIOUS RACISM SORT OF IMPLICIT CASUAL RACISM. HE JUST THOUGHT — HE DIDN’T UNDERSTAND HOW PRIVILEGED HE WAS AND HOW OTHER PEOPLE MIGHT INTERPRET THIS.>>Jedediah: 29?>>Jesse: JUAN, BE SERIOUS FOR A SECOND. IT’S 2001.>>Juan: RIGHT.>>Jesse: YOU CAN HAVE SO MUCH PRIVILEGE. YOU CAN HAVE PRIVILEGE COMING OUT OF YOUR EYEBALLS AND STILL KNOW THAT BLACK FACE IN 2001 NOT A GOOD MOVE.>>Juan: I AGREE.>>Mike: SUBCONSCIOUSLY WORK THROUGH THAT ISSUE ONLY BY DRESSING IN BLACK FACE CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THE RACISM.>>Juan: IF YOU ARE INVITED TO ARABIAN KNIGHT THEMED PARTY WOULD YOU SAY I BETTER BE CAREFUL?>>Dana: I WOULD GO AS A CAMEL.>>Jedediah: COUPLE HUMPS CLEAN. OR YOU WEAR THE ROBE, JUAN. YOU DON’T HAVE TO WATER BLACK FACE.>>Jedediah: DID HE THIS TWICE BEFORE AND IT OCCURRED TO HIM LET ME DO IT AGAIN.>>Dana: REMEMBER WHEN HE WAS PRIME MINISTER AND HE WENT TO INDIA AND HIS WHOLE FAMILY DRESSED UP IN INDIA

  1. By the way, that instance of him interrupting the girl to say “we like to say people kind” was immediately after he boasted about how it’s rude to interrupt women. Prime minister of hypocrisy more like. It never ends! 😂

  2. “This guy is layers deep of insufferable… “ Yes, yes he is and sadly, he’s my prime minister… So, the good news is: we have an election and we can vote him out! The bad news is: enough idiots might actually re-elect this moron! Please pray for Canada 🇨🇦.

  3. It wasnt racist in 2001 and its not racist now. Its just a costume and nothing more. Anybody thats the least bit rational can see that its just a costume and everything is about context. The problem with Trudeau is the hypocrisy, not so much the costume. Its how hes made such a huge deal in the past about similar issues, despite the fact he did. But anyone that thinks dressing up as someone of another race is racist, is the true racist itself. Everything is in context. Too many damned snowflakes in this world, seriously..

  4. you know what is funny if this was a conservative these fox news cunts won`t be calling him racist ….. they would be making excuses for them … which is why I can't stand fox news a bunch of idiots.

  5. The Canadian General Election is only a MONTH away…..
    And he is not sure if there are any more Photographs.?????
    A SNOWMAN has a better Future

  6. I stopped watching 5 minutes in. You have a panel of 5 people and already in the 1st minutes you have a 2 vs 1 debate on whether blackface is acceptable "depending on the political circumstance" ? Media at it's best: Making noise about insignificant issues that won't put food on anyone's table. The media can't even agree with each other. We truly are in an age of stupid distractions. Tell me how this will help us live better tomorrow?

  7. I really don't know why some people need to be like this and wearing makeup to have a black face? For a movie, it's OK because it's a comedy, but here… a politician? This is really bizarre and certainly way more sinister in some way, maybe not at 100% so sinister of course, but, again… why?! And apparently, he's not the only one and this is not the first time that we see that in history with politicians. So, if he's not the only one, that means that there is sometimes strange going on behind closed doors for decades.

  8. It's actually worse. This party was a black tie affair. This idiot showed up the only one of 250 men not wearing a black tie and tuxedo. He must have thought it was
    an event where you dress up but when he got there, he wasn't totally embarrassed,….. he stayed for the full event. Do you think this dork has even the minimal
    understanding of average "folk" ?

  9. Trudeau is a PRAT! Dressing up is NOT racist, you Canadian TWAT. Trudeau being caught out by his own PC bollocks is hilarious!

  10. As a Canadian I am embarrassed that this goof is the Prime Minister of Canada. Please let me apologize to the world for this idiot.

  11. Remember, People, his Father, Pierre, was a great supporter of Fidel Castro, and Socialism. His Mother, Margaret, had an abortion when she was 17 years old, then Married his father when Pierre was 50, and she was 22. She has had a history of drug use and psychotic episodes which led to her being institutionalized several times. Justin Trudeau may be young, rich, good looking, and come from a powerful political family (Think Kennedys in the U.S.A.)but as my Father used to say, "There's something Wrong with that Boy!"

  12. It was an Arabian nights party, but the only one to dress up in Arabian garb was Trudeau. It was a black tie party for 500. No one else, besides Trudeau, was in costume.
    Also, check out his right hand on that woman's chest. He said he knew her very well. She says they weren't close friends.

  13. The year was 2001 Trudeau for not the first time dressed in black face.A supposedly intelligent future prime minister didn't realize how racist he was.He shamed himself and if he is elected for a second time the whole country will be shamed.Trudeau must go!

  14. I never knew blackface was even a thing until the last few years. It never occurred to me to do it. With that what if I want to be covert is it still a no go. Maybe I will stick with ski masks. I just have to take it off before I go into a bank.

  15. Being offended by someone dressing up as Aladdin (or the Day-O singer) and painting their face brown to make the costume more accurate and calling the person racist because of it- THAT is layers of stupid.

    Trudeau's apology is silly because he didn't really do anything wrong, but at least he's trying to recognize that his action was offensive to others, even if it was not intended that way at all.

    We should focus on fighting & preventing ACTUAL INTENDED RACISM like Donald Trump and white supremacists in the states, rather than scolding and hating on PMs like Trudeau for unintentionally offending people with "blackface" or "brownface" which personally I have NEVER heard of until this scandal hit the news. If you say I live under a rock, that's YOU being insulting and disrespectful, not me. It is not WRONG to not know something. It is not EVIL to never have heard of society's ridiculously arbitrary rules regarding what colours one is allowed to paint their face.

  16. Looks like he's trying to cop a feel on a student too…

    I hate that forgiveness is a lost virtue in today's society, but the left made these rules…NOW THEY MUST BY PLAY THEM.

  17. In that photo did anyone else notice where his hands are on that young girl's chest? If that was a student of his why aren't we talking about that?

  18. For Christ's sake… I hate Trudeau… But black face is is a very specific derogatory and intentionally racist act. Impersonating a person of color is NOT black face. C'mon…

  19. Perhaps all the members of his party could "Normalise" it by doing the same .Their party convention would look like a minstrel show Only with less talent

  20. While I dont endorse blackface. Nor do I care for the p.m
    But does it really make sense to freak out over blackface when the wayans brothers and Dave Chappelle did a contrast and made millions on it?

  21. Justin Trudeau's excuse of convenience: "The devil made me do it".Did your "white privilege" make you feel out the female coed from the school that you were employed at? Aren't teachers supposed to be examples of morality for their students to relate to and seed to follow? Even when hi gives his news "sort-of and apology he takes no responsibility and blames it on the "White Privilege that he grew up in". What a despicable phony man!

  22. C'mon man, trump and his dad denied black people to rent their properties and kicked out all the black families that lived in coney island just based on their skin. That's racist. Painting your skin black? That doesnt affect anyone's life what so ever. This comment section is filled with clowns.

  23. He lying again, British Newspaper reports it was Black Tie Dinner with an " Arabian Nights " Theme in the form of Belly Dancers and Middle Eastern Music! He blames Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Canadians and his Elite up bringing, instead of taking Responsibility for his Racist Behavior!

  24. yet this is nowhere on any main liberal media news pages…why? the left doesn't care when one of their own is racist so long as it's not politically convenient to go after them

  25. As a disenfranchised Canadian, it's amazing to me how easily 5 Americans see through this clown, and yet, apparently half of Canadians would still vote for him. Canada, you deserve what you get.

  26. As usual America knows nothing about Canadian politics, Trudeau is the same disaster Hillary would have been if elected. Jedediah if I spelled it correct, is the most accurate description of Justin Trudeau, he is a twat.

  27. There is very compelling evidence that Turdo is in fact the illegitimate son of Fidel Castro…Turdo is also a big fan of Communism as he has expressed his admiration for China's micro managed prison like society.

  28. Not clear if Juan's liberal hypocrisy even occurs to him. Like asking a fish if it notices water. Awesome he plainly stated he'll give a liberal a pass, but it's horrible for anyone else due to "dynamics" all Others share.

  29. The 'Right' are hypocrites too. Much creeping OTT liberal pc crap have we had to endure, and have seen conservatives rightly criticising it. Here they are agreeing that this was "racist"! That's hypocrisy right there. If people can't see the truth in the other's side, then they are *extremists*. If Trudeau had been a conservative, would the "Right" still be agreeing without a second thought, that he was being "racist"??
    The whole "Left" has been utterly hijacked and their dictates are becoming cult-like. The "Right" should not be agreeing with them on a point which they have always disagreed with. It's very tit-for-tat and shows a lack of consistency on values.

  30. he failed the left just say it you know hes not fit if you try to say hes in the right people will see you for who you really are dont do it to your self !

  31. so he's done blackface so often he can't even remember it? how many times as he done it? I'm sure way more often than the average white american. and yet he screams the loudest when someone is just slightly offensive by his standards. it's pathetic

  32. It's amazing how this slow old black man defending him goshhhhh does he know how he got to America idiot, no wonder u were easily taken over in Africa while we fought them off

  33. Except what he REALLY did was throw all white people under the bus by blaming it on "privilege". He didn't take personal responsibility. He has now heaped all of it on white people. Because the white man's burden wasn't heavy enough already.

  34. I am a 66 year old Canadian and I have never worn black face or even thought about doing such a thing. Trudeau is typical of leftists, they project their guilt and shame on innocent people who deserve neither.

  35. Im sorry but i just can't stop crying im laughing so hard my sides hurt and i can't breathe please never let me wake up form this amazing dream

  36. Justin Trudope/Castro
    an Enigma of a bizarro couple. Enough said, Canada you have issues.
    But take heart, America is cursed with our Clintons. Just as Strange a “family”.
