Trudeau responded to Lantsman, who is Jewish, by saying Conservative Party members “can stand with people who wave swastikas.”
“Mirar, this is not a surprise to me,” she told host Laura Ingraham. “You just said it. This is his true colors. I sit there and watch him divide and wedge and stigmatize Canadians every single day. And today, the rest of Canada saw a G-7 prime minister go after a Jewish member of parliament, and then walk away and not apologize.”
Lantsman said she expects an apology.
She added that “words matter,” and Trudeau’s words led to “an influx of people calling you a Nazi, and that’s not OK.”
She laid such divisive rhetoric at his feet, saying Canada is “in trouble and he’s lost control of the situation.”
” ... [T]o watch what is happening and what the prime minister is driving in this country is frankly egregious.”
