It’s one thing to respect and appreciate foreign culture and practices … but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been making a fool of himself OVERDOING the photo op costuming, caricaturing and carrying on.
How embarrassing that most of the “coverage” of Canada’s Chief Executive Officer to India has surrounded comic antics, deplorable gaffes and a string of excuses, apologies and alibis … not exactly an international triumph for Canada.
You can read about Trudeau’s disastrous trip to India here:
Even the US late night TV host Trevor Noah has gotten into the act … making Trudeau and Canada a laughing stock across the US.
Almost lost by all the Trudeau antics was the signing of $1 Billion in trade deals … something well worth noting, but sidelined and stymied by Trudeau’s immature antics: http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/india-billion-deal-1.4542860
Hard to believe I wrote about this very same problem regarding Trudeau a year ago! http://harveyoberfeld.ca/blog/justins-silver-spoon-starting-to-tarnish/.
Now the world is starting to see what I … and other Canadians … were quite concerned about back then.
If Canada’s Prime Minister wants to be taken seriously … he should start acing seriously, especially when on an international business trip.
Enough with the photo-bombing; time to put away his costume ball wardrobe; restrict his childish behaviour to when he’s plying with his kids; and, start learning how there’s a time to impress … not just embarrass.
