Just when you think the American media maybe — just maybe — is over the whole “Justin Trudeau, so young and agile” beat, someone digs up a five-year-old photo and decides it’s news.
The picture of the then-Liberal MP mastering the yoga "peacock pose" was taken by photographer Greg Kolz in 2011. It's recently been repurposed by woke U.S. media, who realize that Americans leery of Donald Trump respond to Trudeau content.
And they were right. People gobbled it up.

But between the 😍 😍 😍 reactions, there was one obvious one-liner people couldn’t resist cracking over and over.
It came from...
A current Conservative MP
He's got the yoga balance down. Wish he would try to balance the budget of the Government of Canada. https://t.co/D9zXtxTbqH

@CTVNews Nice balancing act. If only he could balance a budget...

First Justin Trudeau balances babies on his hands, now we find out he can balance his own self on his hands. The budget though...
