Why is Justin Trudeau wearing so many costumers on his India trip?
I don’t mean the occasional tip of the hat to a local ethnic custom of requirement. Every politician does — every person would. If you go to a Jewish synagogue, you put on a little yarmulke, but you’re not pretending you’re Jewish.
It's a dress code really — like, you wouldn’t go into the Vatican wearing short shorts and a halter top.
But Justin Trudeau isn’t just going on a tourist’s junket through India — he’s doing some weird dress up thing, too.
Just how many costumes did Trudeau bring to India? He clearly put more time and planning into this week-long fantasy cosplay party than he did into any business or diplomatic purposes in India.
It’s also weird because he doesn’t quite get it.
Look, there are eccentric, vain people who are very rich. Just think of weird rock stars and their indulgences. But Trudeau isn’t a billionaire or a rock star. On his own, he couldn’t get the Taj Mahal shut down, inconveniencing 35,000 people, just for a photo shoot.
No, he can only do that with the resources of our Canadian government.
He’s trading on our reputation in the world, to live the Kardashian lifestyle. It's weird and childish.
One moment he’s playing the role of a party boy at a gay pride parade. The next moment he’s dressed in traditional Pakistan garb, in a hard-line mosque.
Canada's Media Party loves to play along. Because I suppose it’s more fun for them, too, than trying to think of smart questions to ask about economics or diplomacy or military matters.
And now add in the promise that every Canadian journalist is about to get a big bail-out from Trudeau.
It’s embarrassing that our media has gone along with it. Were it not for the rebellion of India’s media this past week, we’d have no critical coverage of our costume party playboy prime minister at all.
