(LifeSiteNews) – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is making headlines again. As the hearings on his knee-jerk invocation of the Emergencies Act drag on, Rachel Gilmore of Global News tittered on Twitter that Trudeau was going for yet another first: “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hasn’t sashayed away from the opportunity of being the first world leader on Drag Race. Condragulations, [sic] Canada!” The trailer, posted from the TV show Canada’s Drag Show, featured the prime minister striding onto the set—to enormous excitement.  

Or as CTV News put it: 

Justin Trudeau is swinging by the “werkroom” on an upcoming spinoff of “Canada’s Drag Race.” Producers of the drag queen competition series say the Prime Minister will make a special appearance on “Canada’s Drag Race: Canada vs. the World”…An image from the set showed Trudeau beside Toronto drag queen and host Brooke Lynn Hytes in a segment where the contestants receive inspiring words before the episode’s main challenge. 

Gilmore—an alleged journalist who alternates between complaining about right-wingers and claiming persecution—stated that Trudeau’s appearance is significant because of the existence of parents who find these performances inappropriate: “Trudeau is making this appearance at a time when Drag events have been facing serious, hate-fueled backlash…Multiple events at libraries in Canada, where Drag Queens have read stories to kids about inclusivity, have been protested. Organizers have faced hateful slurs and threats.”

One-time conservative Charles Adler, who has been working himself into a lather over the past few years attempting to outdo Michael Coren in a bid for the good graces of progressives, leapt to agree with her: “Paranoid leaders pandering to the chronically angry base would never go there. Good on Justin Trudeau for confidently representing Canada on one of TV’s best produced shows RuPaulsDragRace.”  

Plenty of others had different takes, wondering why a world leader (that designation may be a stretch for a Canadian prime minister) would stoop to this level. Considering Trudeau’s penchant for scampering about at Pride Parades and hugging drag queens and taking every opportunity to embrace the LGBT movement, this really is no surprise. And considering his longstanding habit of donning blackface—which persisted into his thirties—his enthusiastic endorsement of “womanface” is no surprise, either. Insulting parodies are kind of his thing, and his respect for women has been largely limited to shouting his support for abortion and calling himself a feminist (but did not preclude the non-consensual groping of a female journalist at a boozy BC festival). 

This is par for the course for Trudeau. Canada is more divided than it has been for several generations; interest rates and inflation are going up; the federal government is scandal-ridden with Trudeau himself single-handedly racking up more formal ethics violations than any of his prime ministerial predecessors. But not to worry—while Canada makes headlines around the world for our poor and disabled opting for assisted suicide because the government has given them the right to euthanasia without providing them any material support and our top doctors call for infant euthanasia, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is stepping into the spotlight to yuk it up with some grateful drag queens. 

Even his father, one suspects, would be ashamed of him.
