In recent years, the world has seen a trend of far-right racists being elected into office. With US President Donald Trump, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro all leading the world, many were concerned that Canada may follow suit and also elect a far-right racist.
However, in a turn of events, Canadians have decided to compromise the status quo by electing a racist who is actually on the left.
Prime Minister and Aladdin enthusiast, Justin Trudeau, today was re-elected in a close Canadian election. The incumbent PM saw his re-election campaign littered with scandals, including one showing him in brownface.
While rich, white people being secretly a little racist is as old as rich, white people being outwardly racist, the fact that it was from a guy who seemed to be more left than a roundabout turn off suprised the world.
Canadian Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, however, was not as shocked by the result. When asked what it’s like losing to someone who lied, been racist, comes from a rich family and maybe a little corrupt, Scheer responded.
“I mean I know what Hilary Clinton felt like”
In the wake of this surprising victory, Labor Party leader Anthony Albanese has tried to dig up old pictures of himself in compromising racist positions.
