Justin Trudeau’s ‘Peoplekind’ Remark Draws Ridicule in U.S. and U.K. Media
An offhand SJW remark during Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s town hall tour has drawn international ire from the conservative media.
“Fox and Friends” is among the outlets seizing on video footage of Trudeau interrupting a woman who used the term “mankind” during her question.
The remark came last Thursday during Trudeau’s town hall in Edmonton, when a Canadian asked him to look into conservative religious policies.
“Maternal love is going to change the future of mankind,” the questioner said.
“We like to say ‘peoplekind,’ not necessarily ‘mankind,’ because it’s more inclusive,” Trudeau said, to cheers from the crowd.
But five days later, British media personality Piers Morgan attacked the phrase, sarcastically writing, “Mankind ended last night,” in the tabloid The Daily Mail.
“His denunciation of mankind has turned him from caring, sharing feminist heartthrob into a global laughing stock,” Morgan, who also co-hosts Good Morning Britain, wrote.
“But it’s one thing for snowflake students and professors to pull dumb stunts. It’s quite another for the culprit to be the Prime Minister of the world’s second largest geographical country.”
