In a long career as a news and PR photographer and journalist, I have seen some sick ideas, some stupid ideas and quite a few cynical ideas. But rarely have I seen anything as dumb, patronising, blatantly offensive and downright cynical as this obviously stunted-up PR picture promoting arch-slimeball Justin Trudeau.
The picture purports to show Trudeau ‘helping a disabled person down an escalator’ at Montreal Metro Station. Oh really? Why didn’t he just use the fucking lift, that was put there so that disabled persons, particularly those in wheelchairs, could freely access the service?
Because that way there would have been no opportunity fora sick, cynical, patronising PR ‘picture opportunity’.
These people make me sick.
