Prime Minister Trudeau went viral this week after saying something so controversial, it became a segment on Fox & Friends.  What could the PM have said?  Well he was at a Town Hall in Edmonton when he corrected a woman who used the phrase “mankind” – Trudeau advised her that “peoplekind” was more inclusive.

The comment drew some laughter from the audience as well as the lady asking the question.  Watch the exchange below.

Not only was the story covered by major news organizations around the world, the internet began to immortalize the PM’s comments in meme form.

For his part, Trudeau insists the comment was a joke.  A dumb one that has been taken out of context but a joke nevertheless.
