    I Did Nothing Wrong But Someone May Have Experienced It 'Differently'

    Trudy is doing the two step, after getting exposed as a groper

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau responded again Thursday to allegations that he groped a female reporter nearly 20 years ago at the 2000 Kokanee Summit festival.



    The allegations first appeared in an anonymous editorial in the Creston Valley Advance which resurfaced on Twitter. The article also says Trudeau apologized, saying “I’m sorry. If I had known you were reporting for a national paper, I never would have been so forward.”

    Initially the Canadian Prime Minister told The Washington Post that he remembered “no negative interactions from that day.


    "I remember that day in Creston well. It was an Avalanche Foundation event to support avalanche safety. I had a good day that day. I don’t remember any negative interactions that day at all," he said.


    However, on Thursday, Trudeau admitted that he did apologize to the reporter and that he respects that she “might have experienced” the interaction “differently.”

    At this point, I must say that what he did 20 years ago is irrelevant today. What he does IN office is most relevant, just like Trump.
    The same applies to anyone. Weinstein, for example, kept doing what he had been doing. He deserves no break.

    I probably did some things in college that I'm not too proud of.

    We all did things in the past we are not proud of. Some of it we bury deep enough that we hope no one else remembers or dig up.
    Our mistakes make us what we are today. I, too, had done some things I'd rather forget, but it is still part of stj's experiences and I know what not to do today. The absolute worse was during my time in 'Nam.............and the few years after getting out.

    One of my second cousins uploaded a photo of herself on myspace wearing an empty twelve pack container as a hat. I am relatively certain she didn't recall doing it. College is such a fun experience.
