Justin Trudeau’s political rehab is continuing, and apparently his attempt to pivot from all the blackface photos to gun control isn’t distracting voters enough, because the Canadian PM is still fielding questions about it:
Heartbreaking to hear these kids ask this. pic.twitter.com/u3Vuj8TGEq

Here’s a little background about where the clip comes from:
On Monday, Kin Community Canada announced that Season 2 of Jessi Cruickshank’s New Mom, Who Dis? on Facebook Watch will kick off with an exclusive interview with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
In a teaser clip for Trudeau’s episode, Cruickshank invites five children into the room to ask the prime minister some questions.
“Why did you paint your face brown?” a set of twins asks Trudeau.
“It was something I shouldn’t have done because it hurt people. It’s not something you should do, and that is something that I learned. I didn’t know it back then but I know it now and I’m sorry I hurt people,” Trudeau responds.
He “didn’t know it back then”?
@JustinTrudeau didn’t know that racist blackface was racist when he was 30 years old. Also, he’s prepared to lie about it to little kids. My God, this guy is so unfit. Just a disgrace. #elxn43 #cdnpoli https://t.co/uYuMC3tBal

Trudeau should be handing out Dramamine so people don’t get nauseous from all the spinning.
This is amazing. https://t.co/xHNETZxzIo

Some things are best left alone ,especially if you’re going to use children. Totally repulsive grandstanding!

Note the camera shifts/changes. 100% staged and ultra cringy. Nice Cat in the Hat socks there Socko The Clown. https://t.co/iuEbqetXic

If cringe could kill, this video would constitute genocide.

This is the craziest video I've ever seen a political party put out. I mean: how desperate do the Libs have to be to allow this to go out?
Post debate polls must be very bad for Trudeau… https://t.co/EUdFCHtwxX
