Rare Footage Emerges Of Trudeau Not In Blackface

Explosive footage has emerged of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau without a blacked-up face, in images that have shocked the nation.

Trudeau – who is almost unrecognisable in the photo without black make-up on – can be seen posing at a party with friends, who are also in their natural skin colour.

The Prime Minister’s campaign office quickly released a statement downplaying the incident, saying it was one-off. “There was a very brief phase when Justin chose not to black up. It was an isolated incident”.

Allies also came to his defence, with many saying it was out of character. “This is not the Trudeau I know,” one associate said. “I think there’s every chance this image has been doctored”.
