John Robson: ‘Dumb jokes’ about peoplekind tell us a lot about our shallow PM

Justin Trudeau’s insistence on gender Newspeak during a MacEwan University town hall made headlines from Britain to Germany to India. Partly our off-the-cuff PM is an irresistible freak show as he whips out his CF-18, praises China’s dictatorship or depicts injured soldiers as greedy. But it’s far from innocent, and no mere “dumb joke,” when what rattles around inside his head escapes via his mouth, including hypocritically demanding “peoplekind” while accepting “maternal love” without demur.
