It was a masterful little moment in Tuesday’s Munk Debate.
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau was grandstanding about and, amidst his complaints, mentioned pomp. NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, without even looking at Trudeau, seamlessly stated: “I’ll leave the pomp to you, Justin.”
Then the camera caught a reaction shot of Mulcair from over Trudeau’s shoulder. He wasn’t relishing at getting in a great zinger. He wasn’t smiling at the audience’s laughter.
