Justin Trudeau tried way too hard in India, and it backfired spectacularly
Date/Time: Fri, 23 Feb 2018 11:11:49 -0500

Justin Trudeau tried way too hard in India, and it backfired spectacularlyCanadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau can't stop being the worst version of himself while touring India. During an official visit this week, Trudeau has once again dipped back into his charisma well to inspire good headlines, and global affection. Only this time, it looks like he's drowned. Every day of his trip, Trudeau opted to don grand, ceremonial outfits traditional for India. It can be presumed that he wanted to show respect and "fit in" with the people of the country. In reality, most saw it as trying to hard at best, or as cultural appropriation at worst.  SEE ALSO: Everything you need to know to enjoy curling, the Winter Olympics' best obscure sport Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visits Amritsar's Golden Temple, February 21, 2018.

He's continually stuck his Disney Prince face into whatever photo op continues to build his brand as the good guy ally, the nerdy man of the people, and super hunk statesman.  Well, the headlines that have come out of Trudeau's India visit have unraveled a bit of that perception. Press in the asian country and abroad have called out his embarrassing over-the-top dress as reeking of overcompensation.  India's message to Justin Trudeau: stop trying so hardhttps://t.co/5p0mAKjhgX pic.twitter.com/pCOGN1i8iH — NDTV (@ndtv) February 23, 2018 Justin Trudeau can't stop being an embarrassing tourist in India https://t.co/5jW1N6YLwE pic.twitter.com/JAyaD8BJ1y — Travel + Leisure (@TravelLeisure) February 23, 2018 Canadian PM Trudeau roundly mocked for political, fashion blunders during disastrous trip to India https://t.co/zdh69Ia0Qm pic.twitter.com/VFPki96Olw — INSIDER (@thisisinsider) February 23, 2018 And so, the internet dragged him for it.  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 — Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) February 21, 2018 I love the Trudeau but cannot understand why he’s dressed like he’s at his own Indian wedding. https://t.co/lBdoLJNtQr — Angela Saini (@AngelaDSaini) February 21, 2018 Just chill, Justin.
