LAWTON: Trudeau, blackface, and political hypocrisy

True North's Andrew Lawton was live to talk about what Trudeau's blackface incidents means for Trudeau's re-election campaign.

In less than 24 hours, three photos and one video have revealed three separate occasions on which Prime Minister Justin Trudeau donned blackface or brownface.

Trudeau has apologized for the incidents, crediting them to his “privilege,” which prevented him from understanding them as racist at the time.
