TORONTO – A northern firestorm erupted earlier today when an off-the-record comment made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was leaked to the outside press. During an interview with the CBC Thursday morning, Trudeau made what some are calling an inappropriate joke about Bristol Palin while being asked about Republican Presidential front runner Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall along the Mexican border.
“I suppose Canada could build a wall around Bristol Palin’s vaginal cavity, but is that really going to stop Canadians from entering? I highly doubt it,” said Trudeau. Playing along, the interviewer asked who would pay for such a wall, with the PM adding, “How about all the fools who paid her six figures for an abstinence speech?”
A transcript of the interview was leaked to several independent media outlets, leading to an intern with CBC being fired. Trudeau’s spokesperson promptly issued an apology, stating: “The Prime Minister regrets making that analogy, and now realizes it was in poor taste. Mr. Trudeau has reached out to the Palin family to personally apologize.”
Bristol’s mother, former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, was quick to fire back at Trudeau via Twitter: “Thought you liberals were against slut shaming? Maybe a Canadian wall is not a bad idea. New PM is a vile looser [sic]! Boycott!!!
This is not the first time the Alaskardashians and Mr. Trudeau have crossed each other on social media. Last year when Trudeau became the second-youngest Prime Minister of Canada, Sarah blasted her neighbors of the north for electing what she called a “Liberal nightmare.” Trudeau shot back accusing Palin of being “One Brady short of a bunch,” and “a prime example why Americans need access to mental health care.”
Bristol Palin has taken online jabs at the PM on everything from accepting Syrian refugees to marijuana to abortion, even once poking fun at Trudeau for self identifying as a feminist.
However, Bristol hasn’t always been a such a harsh critic of Trudeau, once tweeting he was “smokin’ hot!” and “would ride his fuck rod” after a Twitter follower sent her a video of him stripping for charity. When pointed out the stripper’s identity, Bristol deleted the video, presumably embarrassed by the gaffe.
