   Remember how when he named his first cabinet, and half the ministers were women and half men, and the media asked him why the 50/50 split, and his response was “because it’s 2015?” The world press swooned and hyperventilated over his sensitivity.
  That’s the kind of fawning he’s accustomed to. So, he was likely shocked, at first, by the near-universal panning of his “personkind” remark. Then, he may have been embarrassed and hurt.
  Trudeau says ridiculously meaningless and pious stuff like that all the time. I don’t know why this one garnered so much worldwide attention and scorn. But it did. And it’s clear our PM, who loves to think of himself as hip and in-tune, was badly stung by being mocked.
  He’s not used to people making fun of his exercises in virtue signaling, and it upset him.
