Video: Justin Trudeau looks like a guy from The Bachelorette

When the president of France shows up in Canada, he does not get off the plane wearing a beaver fur trapper coat.

However Canadian PM, usually praised for his savoir-faire, wore numerous and very colourful, razzle-dazzle and somewhat traditional outfits, throughout his trip to India.

Trudeau and his family wore multicoloured sherwanis, including a sparkling gold one, only worn on very special occasions such as weddings.

While the Indian diplomats looked like they were invited to a official conference, Trudeau looked like he was auditioning for backup dancer for a cheap Bollywood movie.

After making a series of protocol mistakes, Trudeau gave the impression that he was lost in a strange land.

Memes and jokes about the Trudeaus’ attire were spreading on social media, while others were accusing him of cultural appropriation.

One Indian politician tweeted: “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.”

Trudeau’s clothing even landed a short segment on Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” with host John Oliver referring to it as “national dress pandering.”

Less than two weeks after the trip and his first official visit to India as Prime Minister Trudeau netted a business deal that would see Indian companies invest $250 million in Canada.

However a new poll suggests that the support for Trudeau and his Liberal Party is at its lowest point since the 2015 election.

And his recent trip to India could have played a significant role in that dive.

The biggest drop in support for Trudeau was in Canadians’ views of the way he has represented Canada internationally after his behavior garnered mockery online, with some calling his and his family’s chosen outfits “ridiculous.”
