A listicle of international Justin Trudeau listicles
Justin Trudeau has already accomplished a lot in the six months he’s been in office: he usurped Ryan Gosling’s Hey Girl meme, proved his geek credentials by explaining quantum computing, and cuddled baby pandas at the zoo. (He hasn’t yet cuddled with Obama, but by the look of things it’s only a matter of time.) Last week he charmed the English-speaking world by coming to Toronto to have a bro-down with Prince Harry.
All of which is to say: the PM is adept at converting all his wins into delicious social media snackables, and the internet loves him for it. A lot. And not just the Canadian internet. Here, a listicle of Trudeau listicles from around the globe:
