Another female politician, former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell, has referred to President Trump as a “motherf***er.”
Campbell, who is Canada’s first and only woman to serve in the role of Prime Minister, emulated the words of Rep. Rashida Tlaib when she called him the same name in a speech to supporters.
“When your son looks at you and says: ‘Momma, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t,’ Tlaib said. “Because we’re going to go in there, and we’re going to impeach the motherf***er.”
Campbell, a senior appointee of Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, felt that was such a classy hot take that she had to get in there and offer up the same rhetoric.
She posted a Politico article on the federal government shutdown adding that Trump “really IS a motherf***er.”
Kim Campbell, Canada’s disgraced former prime minister, finally deleted this tweet after doggedly defending it. Why did she take it down? Does she regret it? If so, why? pic.twitter.com/T4JjrtT0Uc

Campbell followed up on the since-deleted tweet by claiming – without evidence – that the comment was actually part of the embedded tweet. Narrator’s voice – It wasn’t.
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
It’s quite the remarkable change in attitude for Campbell, using profanity in such a manner, considering she very recently 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

This, despite having once posed with bare shoulders, holding only a lawyers robe in front of her, creating the impression that she was nude.
So, bare shoulders are demeaning, but referring to the President of the United States as a “motherf***er,” isn’t.
Maybe She Needs to Focus on Justin
Perhaps if Campbell is interested in calling out vile characters she could start with 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 President as simply “Donald,” and repeatedly calling the deal the “new North American Free Trade Agreement,” a name Trump specifically asked to discard.
