    It's funny how he made the cover of Rolling Stone magazine this month with that headline.

    Besides being anti-trump, what's so special about him?
    He wouldn't be on the media radar if it was any other US President.

    Partly, imo. The contrast between them in styles and values is huge, whatever one may think of either guy. But Trudeau would still be a hero in Canada without Trump to be compared to, since he was elected right after a really shitty right-wing PM, and he pushes all the popular buttons with the liberals

    Trudeau is quite hated up here. He's not at Trump levels, but he's not that far off either. You don't hear about it as much because much of our media is heavily left biased and they don't want to lose power again. Trust me though, a majority think he's the fucking moron that he is.

    Outside of Canada? Absolutely.

    Their influence and import on the world is close to meaningless, gossip mags and refugees notwithstanding.

    Media was swooning and drooling over him just at the thought of him running for PM in Canada. This was before Trump was on the scene.

    I think the love affair is because he is a very obedient globalist lackey. The bigger global players that influence a lot of the media and public perception can promote people who they think serve their interests. They can also demote others who may run contrary.

    Government data may support this claim, but the TSX and Venture don't support this. Canada has taken on lots of debt just like the U.S in recent years.

    Everyone calls every leader they don't like a "global laughing stock" be it Trump or Merkel or Kim Jong-Il. Usually nobody is laughing and everyone is just very angry.

    Trudeau is the first name who people actually seem to respond to with laughter. Finally a literal laughing stock.

    Trump made a lot of politicians famous because he got a lot of people paying attention to politics

    People have been taking shit and memeing on how stupid Trudeau is before trump announced his campaign

    Whether you put it on pedestal, polish it, put a ribbon on it... a turd is still a turd. Productive people of society aren't going to buy it.

    I think it's funny that some of the things people talk shit on trump for, are so much worse with Trudeau

    When people say trump wouldn't be as successful without his dad. Trudeau was a high school drama teacher and ski instructor and got elected PM almost entirely off his dads name. He is WAY more of a coattail rider than even GWB since bush at least did other shit like prove himself as a governor

    People say trump "embarrasses himself on twitter" when trudeaus been saying shit that would get trump crucified. He said he's jealous of china because they're a dictatorship so they can fix their economy quicker. He said that immigrants deserve Canada more because they appreciate it more etc
