Rashida Tlaib, the freshman congresswoman who unceremoniously called President Trump the MF-word, has apologized … sort of. “What I can tell you, she said Tuesday, “is that I am a person that is authentically me. I’m very passionate about fighting for all of us, and the use of that language, you know, was a teachable moment for me. And I understand I am a member of Congress, and I don’t want anything that I do or say distract us. And that’s the only thing I will apologize for, is that it was a distraction.”
Meantime, another female politician, seeking to keep the liberal flame of incivility burning, doubled down on Tlaib’s obscenity. This time the sentiment comes from across America’s northern border.
Kim Campbell, Canada’s first and only woman to serve in the capacity of prime minister, posted a tweet from Politico on the federal government shutdown and opined that Trump “really IS a motherf*cker.”

As Ezra Levant notes, Campbell finally deleted the tweet after whole-heatedly embracing it, and then, as if to prove she is a liar as well as a coward, she claimed the original obscenity was not hers:
I got the reference. You added your own comment to the quoted tweet, in enthusiastic agreement I might add. The point is, that is unbecoming a former PM, no matter how short the term. Stay classy.

Campbell Courts Controversy
Using full-throated profanity to express an opinion is quite a remarkable attitude adjustment for Campbell, who very recently primly criticized female journalists for wearing sleeveless dresses because they are “demeaning.”
I am struck by how many women on television news wear sleeveless dresses- often when sitting with suited men. I have always felt it was demeaning to the women and this suggests that I am right. Bare arms undermine credibility and gravitas! https://t.co/plBRrrtqKV

Maybe She Needs to Focus on Justin
Perhaps if Campbell is interested in calling out vile characters, maybe she should begin with the man who appointed her, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Earlier this year, an editorial circulating online indicated that Trudeau was accused of groping a female reporter in 2000 and even allegedly apologized following the incident.
Here is a slightly better quality image of an editorial in the August 14, 2000 Creston Valley Advance, a local B.C. paper, which claims Justin Trudeau apologized for "inappropriately handling" (or "groping" in the paper's words) a female reporter. pic.twitter.com/fZ748QqWYX

“I’m sorry,” Trudeau allegedly told the woman he had groped. “If I had known you were reporting for a national paper, I would never have been so forward.”
The PM created a scene at the signing of a new trade deal between Canada, Mexico, and the United States in November, refusing to pose for a picture, referring to the U.S. president as simply “Donald,” and repeatedly calling the deal the “new North American Free Trade Agreement,” a name Trump specifically asked to discard.
