Trudeau talked about feminism. He took some selfies. He appeared on the cover of several magazines. Then he and Obama made some jokes. Then he did a one-armed push up. Those are just a small sampling of his antics since taking office. And now, I think I've had just about enough. Trudeau is clearly milking his greatest strength. His likability is off the charts, but with so many important issues happening in Canada right now do we really need to constantly be reminded that our prime minister is approachable and hip?

I was in Debre Libanos, Ethiopia, visiting family, when the conversation turned to Canadian politics. My uncle reflected on the Canada he understood and remembered. This included having an international perspective, respect for international institutions such as the United Nations, and a Canadian society that acted like a neighbour when disasters struck.

If I had a second chance to vote today, Justin, believe me, I would cast it for you. That night, in bed, I looked at pictures of your victory. I was obsessed. For once in my life, politics looked like me, physically. It no longer was a thing filled with old men making decisions belonging to the
previous century. But I'm realistic, and thought I had been had by your image campaign. I was another of its victims. After the elections, but a victim, nonetheless. But because of your wife's starry eyes, your kids T-shirts and of you great hair, I became a Liberal. Horrible, isn't it?

Two weeks ago, Ezra Levant went on a heated, televised tirade where he criticized Justin Trudeau for supposedly "photobombing" a wedding. Levant, most notably, called Justin's father Pierre a "slut," and insinuated similar things about Justin's mother, Margaret Sinclair. Apart from the fact that Levant's rant was inappropriate and completely misplaced, there is a greater picture here that must be considered -- one of even higher magnitude than Levant's derogatory mislabelling of a deceased, former prime minister. Ezra Levant is trying to dispel Trudeaumania from overtaking the country once more.
Those who have had the misfortune of witnessing Trudeau speak from the House know how cringe-worthy it is to watch. Trudeau has the unfortunate weakness of seeming incredibly insincere, as well as sounding as if he has continuously just memorized a script. One would think being a former drama teacher would have fixed that problem.
