Lib Leader Called Queen When Paper Mistakes Ethnic Clothes for Drag

Path 27

Sometimes, I almost feel bad for Justin Trudeau. The mop-headed cipher who nominally presides over the Dominion of Canada has become the butt of a lot of jokes, not all of them involving him mansplaining the term “peoplekind” to a female constituent.

Yes, he’s not the smartest world leader by any stretch of the imagination.

Yes, he’s evidence that Margaret Trudeau maybe spent too much time partying with the Rolling Stones during her pregnancy with him.

Yes, he constantly has a facial expression that resembles Paris Hilton trying to solve Fermat’s last theorem.

Yes, he thinks that Canadian tax dollars should be used to rehabilitate Islamic State group fighters and that the Boston bombers simply acted out because they were “excluded.”

However, we should give the guy a bit of slack. After all, he never dressed up in drag like a deranged clown on horse tranquilizer. I think we can all admit that’s just simply a bridge too far.

Unfortunately, the folks at the U.K. Daily Mail crossed it. According to The Daily Caller, in an article published in the British tabloid, they showed a picture of what they purported to be the future Canadian prime minister in drag.

Trudeau, of course, is a second-generation Canadian leader; his father, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, who served as prime minister from 1969 to 1979, then again from 1980 to 1984. As first ladies go, Margaret Trudeau liked to get down; she had affairs with Sen. Ted Kennedy and Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, smuggled drugs in the prime minister’s luggage, and enjoyed partying scantily-clad at New York’s Studio 54. Sure, it may have been the 1970s, but these weren’t the kinds of things you heard about Rosalyn Carter doing.

Do you think Justin Trudeau should be Canada's leader?

However, as it turned out, the young man doing a bad impression of The Cure’s Robert Smith wasn’t the future leader of Canada, and he was more than willing to point that out.

I’m not quite sure what Gresko is mad about: the fact that the Daily Mail got it so wrong or the fact that he was being mistaken for Justin Trudeau.

Of course, as for the Trudeau angle, it’s unclear whether or not this would have helped or hurt him. Trudeau is kind of like Canada’s version of Barack Obama: Beloved abroad, he’s generally viewed with mixed emotions at home. While the leader of the Liberal Party comes across as likable most of the time, it’s clear he didn’t get his father’s wit and intelligence. (Or perhaps he did and Canada’s stuck with a man who received half of his chromosomes from Ronnie Wood.)

However, at least he has a great ad for when he runs for re-election next year:

Yeah, that sounds about right.
