Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau is apologizing "profoundly" in response to revelations that he wore "blackface" or "brownface" or "face-darkening makeup," if you prefer, on at least three occasions in the past.
"I've always—and you'll know this—been more enthusiastic about costumes than is sometimes appropriate," Trudeau told reporters on Wednesday.
It's not a great look…

Trudeau is certainly enthusiastic about costumes and has donned many throughout his storied career as a political wunderkind. As it turns out, only a few of these costumes have involved blackface. The mainstream media won't report it, and the "cancel culture" mobs won't care, but we found at least 19 separate occasions in which Trudeau wore a costume WITHOUT blackface, because sometimes context is important.
