What is wrong with this dude? I guess the better question is what isn’t at this point. Justin Trudeau’s blunders keep piling up.
Fresh off expounding a young woman to say “peoplekind” instead of “mankind,” (See: WATCH: Trudeau Corrects Woman: Not ‘Mankind, It’s ‘Peoplekind’) Canada’s pretty boy Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stepped in it again, this time insulting the entire nation of India during his boondoggle of an eight-day family workcation.
Twitter lit into Trudeau, 46, this week, for wearing over-the-top, traditional Indian attire that appeared at once desperate and condescending. Sherwanis; kurta shirts; an awkward outfit straight out of central casting for a Bollywood bridegroom.
Is it just me or is this choreographed cuteness all just a bit much now? Also FYI we Indians don’t dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood. pic.twitter.com/xqAqfPnRoZ

“It’s a kind of reverse colonialism to want to mimic the ‘native’. Doing a kurta number as a salute to a culture is one thing, but Justin Trudeau’s display of trousseau like repertoire of multi-coloured kurtas has begun to grate,” wrote Indian political consultant Dilip Cherian.
Justin Trudeau's trip to India has been like that Diwali episode of The Office.

“Offending garments include Trudeau’s long, multicolored sherwanis, usually worn on special occasions such as weddings or in Bollywood movies,” wrote The Washington Post’s New Delhi correspondent, Vidhi Doshi. “Trudeau wore a sparkling gold one to a meeting with Bollywood’s top brass while the film stars wore muted black suits. Add to that the Canadian first family’s posey, soap-opera style namastes, and it’s enough to keep social media here buzzing with memes and jokes.”

Hilariously, when Trudeau met with Bollywood stars in Mumbai, they wore black suits. He, well, did not. (Related: Watch: Justin Trudeau Get Straight Owned By A Few Good Canadians)
Even the bollywood stars would be thinking, "why is this man dressed up like PC Sarkar?" pic.twitter.com/pS1XYX8nQ0

Trudeau, ever one to have his finger on Twitter’s pulse, looked the part of a Prime Minister on Thursday, donning a suit.
One wonders whether the Canadian leader, on his next visit to Washington, D.C., will play the part of George Washington, and wear a blue wool coat and breeches. (Related: Justin Trudeau Publicly Apologies to LGBTQ2, Cries Like a Beta Male)
