Trudeau Responds to PMO’s Reaction to Foul Language

Addressing the small scandal that erupted after federal Liberal Leader, Justin Trudeau, used profanity while addressing the crowd at a charity boxing match, Mr. Trudeau alleged that he had to hear about it from his wife when he got home Saturday night. Speaking with reporters on Monday at a stop in Ajax, Ont, Trudeau alleged in a light mode that “If you had seen the scolding Sophie gave me, you would have wished you’d used a different adjective too.”

On Saturday, Mr. Trudeau was addressing the audience from the boxing ring at a Fight for the Cure event Saturday night in Gatineau, Que., when he said: “I will tell you: there is no experience like stepping into this ring and measuring yourself…Not for your name, your fortune, your intelligence, your beauty, none of that f—–g matters.” Referring to Mr. Trudeau’s choice of words, Prime Minister’s Office mentioned in a brief statement issued on Sunday that “this is yet another example of Justin Trudeau’s lack of judgment.”

In response to the PMO’s statement, Mr. Trudeau stated on Monday that “it was fight night at the casino and I let my emotions get a little overheated.” He alleged that PMO should worry about its judgment on other issues, including the appointments to the senate of Brazeau and Mike Duffy. He said that “whether it’s for senators or executive directors or chiefs of staffs, this is just a government that has shown itself to be incapable of putting the right people in the right place.”
