The world has all of a sudden revised its take on Justin Trudeau

Quote:

The Daily Mail in the U.K. had a good chuckle over how, as they put it, “Justin Trudeau NEVER misses an opportunity to don traditional attire.” The story went on to feature pictures of the PM not just in India but also getting in on the cultural appropriation game on other trips.


The Atwal story then kicked this international attention into high gear, with Indian and other world media struggling to figure out how such a screw-up was possible. The most scathing of all was a column in The Washington Post by Barkha Dutt, a prominent Indian journalist who boasts a social media following of over six million.

“I confess, from afar, I used to be a Trudeau fan-girl,” she writes. “But after this trip, I’ve changed my mind. Trudeau has come across as flighty and facetious. His orchestrated dance moves and multiple costume changes in heavily embroidered kurtas and sherwanis make him look more like an actor on a movie set or a guest at a wedding than a politician who is here to talk business.

“Suddenly, all that charisma and cuteness seem constructed, manufactured and, above all, not serious.”

Ouch. This will come as a sting to a man whose success hinges on keeping his personal brand afloat.

Shortly after Trudeau’s 2015 electoral victory, the idea that he would take the baton from Barack Obama and become the world’s progressive-in-chief was a popular notion among liberal elites. Trudeau’s “because it’s 2015” and “welcome to Canada” hashtag activism initially affirmed this for his admirers.

Then along came a few bumps in the road. The first big one was the Castro eulogy, which was just bizarre. It garnered condemnation from around the globe, including from prominent U.S. politician Marco Rubio. Then there was the $10 million awarded to Omar Khadr, again causing heads to shake


The news that a liberal purity test was being placed on a summer jobs grant program also raised eyebrows abroad. Plus there was Trudeau’s eagerness to be duped by the hijab hoax, don’t forget that one.

That said, this series of missteps was still somewhat acceptable to the liberal media, still within the boundaries of their agenda, even if it was stretching the limits. The damage could be written off as partisan.

Then came the motherlode, the point of no return. The “peoplekind” comment. It was too much even for the wackiest of leftists. Stop the ride, they said, we’re getting off now. There was no walking this one back, even when Trudeau tried to shrug it off as a joke. This one Trudeau had to ride out alone, without his usual phalanx of defenders, as the world weighed in and the likes of Piers Morgan issued a scathing takedown.


Team Trudeau clearly wasn’t expecting the blowback and the PM’s top adviser, Gerald Butts, called some of Trudeau’s critics Nazis on social media, leading Jewish human rights activists to denounce Butts’ ill-mannered meltdown.

It’s one thing for a goofy Trudeauism to rankle the conservative base. They’ve been foaming at the mouth over everything the crown prince does since back when he won the leadership in 2013. It doesn’t take much to get them denouncing him.

It’s another thing to see the rest join the pile on.

Trudeau is now at the midway point of his first term. The budget has not balanced itself. Key campaign planks have faltered. The PMO’s deliverology has failed to deliver. And, perhaps most damaging of all, Trudeau’s image is fraying even among his base.

Are we about to see a pivot? Will there be a change of tone, a move towards more mature governance? That’s up to Trudeau. In the meantime, he’s sure got a lot of the world’s attention.

Not really.

Not The world.....just the crackpot rightwingnut world...which is always trying to reinforce its hatred for anything liberal or progressive....or good for people rather than just corporations.

Pretty much everyone else still thinks Trudeau is a pretty good guy and a good leader for Canada....based on his words and his actions and his policies....nobody but you rightwingnuts are that much concerned with his trying on ethnic costumes while on international trips. In the past, Western officials set the rules and everyone had to wear Euro-American style suits rather than their own native formal wear. Perhaps he will start a new trend of official visitors honoring the native costumes of the host country.

Your source, as always, is very flakey....a rightwingnut tabloid rag, similar to The National Enquirer, and about as honest, with an article written by Anthony Furey, a writer for Breitfart. Media source reviewers report that:

The Toronto Sun is an English-language daily tabloid newspaper published in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is known for its populist conservative editorial stance. Uses sensational right wing headlines. This media source is moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy.
Thanks from RNG
