PoliticsJustin Trudeau Gets Righteously Owned by Sovereign 3-Year-Old
The Crown might be more than Canada's ceremonial head of state now.
Justin Trudeau has a lot going for him these days. The 44-year-old prime minister of Canada is a self-described feminist and a great hang, and, most importantly, he reigns supreme as GQ's consensus most stylish world leader. Not even this gleaming résumé, though, could save him from the universal pain associated with awkwardly introducing yourself to a 3-year-old. Behold:
Oh man, that hurt me. The young man shakes his head forcefully at Trudeau's proffered high-five (The gesture of the commoners?, he sniffed), stares disdainfully at the subsequent low-five (Please, do not endeavor to touch me any further), and does not even deign to cast his royal eyes at the prime minister's final lame, desperate handshake attempt. The rare triple-rejection! Prince George is barely out of diapers and has already asserted himself as the Dikembe Mutombo of awkward international politics gifs.
Trudeau plays it off well, inasmuch as anyone can do so while being so throughly owned by a toddler. But as he rises to his feet, his steely blue eyes betray a pain that may never heal. Canada might have to leave the Commonwealth of Nations entirely until its prime minister can right this wrong.
