BLACKFACE BLUES

News Item:  Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is facing increasing criticism of
his blackface hi-jinks in his youth as more and more photos emerge.

Hey, I am not denying it and I accept responsibility of an error of judgement in my
youth.  It was all in good fun.

Not fun for black people who are caricatured ...

As I said before, I apologize.

It must have taken a while to put on all that makeup and take it off, so why did you do
it?

Well, it sort of makes you the center of attention ...

Like now as a politician ...

Well now I am here to govern.

And then ... what did you do with blackface ...

Oh, you sort of prance around ...

You mean like an ape ...

Oh no, no, no! More like dancing ...

You certainly weren't waltzing, did you mimic African tribal dances ...

I don't know any but you sort of jump around, and I could waltz with the girls but there
were other more popular dances.

You mean like the Watusi.

I didn't say that.

Could you give us a demonstration of what you did?

You, sir, don't make a very good dancing partner ...

You got something against gays?

No, no, ... no, no, no!  I didn't mean that.  Say, can you get me a cheeseburger?

CHEESEBURGER?  I thought that was Trump food ...

I just feel a need for it ...
