Justin Trudeau on quantum computing: It turns out…

From Daily Caller:

The international media fawned over Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his supposedly intelligent remarks at a press conference Friday about quantum computing, which according to many outlets, makes him more than “just a pretty face.”

But in reality, Trudeau seeded the question in advance and then gave nothing more than a grade-school answer to reporters, based on material he had just learned during a tour of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario, according to political commentator J. J. McCullough. At Friday’s tour, he spoke with scientists and then proceeded to give a short speech on government funding for science.More.

Reality check: Of course. But it works. Because legacy media need to market Trudeau as a smart guy, there is no chance the public would find this out apart from independent media. He is the perfect marketing tool for things like euthanasia.

  • The MSM are a disgrace in this country.

    • No, BCF, they are doing their job. The disgrace belongs to those who take them seriously as something other than a branch of progressive governments. And that is rapidly becoming a moral issue.

      • Good point.

        Well stated.

        Presently, the media party can still pretend to survive on revenues.
        Like Macleans, which gets subsidized by the government to a small extent, compared to the CBC, and is seen in every goddamned doctor’s office and hair salon several months out of date.
        Soon, they won’t bother pretending.

    My long departed gran constantly knitted socks also.
    Old pictures of her were in black and white but you could still tell which pairs were destined for her relatives or sons of friends in the army, navy, or air force.

    I’m glad somebody else noticed it. I just wanted to vomit when I read about how wonderful Turdo Ladoo was as he stood in front of a chalkboard filled with complex equations – and prattled on about Schrodinger’s Cat. The whole thing was so obviously a dog and pony show that only other liberals and stupid people would be gulled by it.
    In light of that, and considering our press these days…it might have been an honest mistake…

      Media people don’t know what the eighth decibel of pi is, either.
      And they don’t that there isn’t any such thing.

    Great Leader Trudeau through his loyal patriotic press will explain how to cure cancer tomorrow. Please throw yourselves on the ground and sob in gratification as he speaks.

      Can’t throw myself onto the ground, I’ll land in my own puke.

      I heard Justin scored an eighteen in the first round of the Masters but then he had to leave before making the cut because climate change was being flashed on the Bat-spotlight by Commissioner Gordon.

    Quoting E=MC2 does not make me a physicist, what a moron man-boy!

  • andycanuck

    Did he cite pi to the 19th decibel as a follow-up?

    • Clink9

      The Dear Leader could if he wanted to.

        That’s because he’s a little fat man.

      I really have to read all the comments before I post.

    I think the truth is even worse than what so many believe. They suggest that the man-child learned this little bit during his tour and had it set up to show off what he had just learned. I think it was all planned before the visit, carefully scripted by his advisors and then carried out as has been reported. My point is that I seriously doubt he was capable of learning that wee bit during his visit, unless one thinks his mother or father invented the internet. Sorry Al Gore.

    • I suspect you are right, Alain. the manchild is useful for introducing things to Canada that few would ever have agreed to if they were set before them in advance. Infant euthanasia instead of the Timmy Walk, for example.
