Daily Mail Confuses Trudeau With Pic Of Man In Drag
The Daily Caller

A New York writer went on the record correcting a Daily Mail story that purported to show a picture of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in drag.

On Friday, Brian Gresko tweeted:

    Hey @tomleonard78, this is not @JustinTrudeau this is me at Oberlin College’s Drag Ball in the late 90’s. The photo was published on @GoodMenProject in a piece I wrote about dressing in women’s clothing in college. Why did you lie? Take this down immediately!

The Daily Mail removed the picture from its story.

The British online tabloid was doing a critical piece on Trudeau, documenting how the flashy and sometimes outlandish leader saw his popularity plummet after a disastrous visit to India.


Benefit of the doubt. Honest mistake not fake news.

Not guilty by reason of incompetence. :lol:

I remember the 80's when the Daily Fail had fake photos of Colonel Gaddafi in drag.

I'm not saying Colonel Gaddafi was a nice bloke, but he simply had a very bad taste in fashion and wasn't really a drag queen.
