Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is currently traveling in India and he has dressed for the trip. His clothing choices have been so flamboyant that some Indians have questioned them. He was even singled out for ridicule on the liberal Daily Show.
In the video below, Trevor Noah says:
“What is he doing? You look at all the pictures, the Indians look like they showed up for a diplomatic conference. And he looked like he was auditioning for Jai Ho.”

Justin Trudeau is ridiculed by Indians for his ‘fake, tacky and annoying’ wardrobe of traditional outfits – and finally dons a suit after criticism
Justin Trudeau has been ridiculed on social media by Indians for his ‘tacky’ and over the top outfit choices while on his first visit to their nation as Prime Minister.
While many praised his clothing during the first two days of his trip, patience was wearing thin by the time he attended a Bollywood gala on Tuesday night, before the tide turned against him on Wednesday.
Ministers, authors, journalists and ordinary Indians lined up to mock him on Wednesday, saying his wardrobe was ‘fake and annoying’.
Perhaps taking note of the criticism, the Canadian leader donned a suit on Thursday as he visited Jama Masjid, one of India’s largest mosques.
He looks like he’s trying a little too hard.
