Is this the kind of “journalism” that happens when the media runs out of praises to sing about Joe Biden and Kamala Harris?
At the very beginning of this interminable year, Justin Trudeau grew a beard. The beard was Significant, a symbol of a once-youthful prime minister who was now older and wiser and battle-scarred. https://t.co/8M07yiaPPE pic.twitter.com/Tomp1FWKfM

Wow, that headline might prompt Joe Biden to grow a beard just to give the media an additional reason for puff pieces!
Journalisming. 🤔 https://t.co/sGrw5FiHke

See if you guys can do a 3000 word piece on Trudeau’s chest hair and what implications that has for Canada’s GDP and debt https://t.co/krW9TdW7OU

So this tells me the person who runs the Politico account also writes FanFiction in their spare time 😬 https://t.co/EFcAWKBg4X

Imagine doing blackface several times and they still write puff pieces about you like this. https://t.co/M8MFViX6Pp

The way “Significant” is capitalized implies that’s what Trudeau named his quarantine beard. https://t.co/HqkawFjmBf

Or Politico named it for him:
At the very beginning of this interminable year, Justin Trudeau grew a beard. The beard was Significant, a symbol of a once-youthful prime minister who was now older and wiser and battle-scarred. Many headlines were written. It was a simpler time, when we had nothing better to do than debate the merits of facial hair as an indicator of gravitas. But beard or no, this year has changed Trudeau’s image.
Geologists will mark the change in epochs to pre and post Trudeau beard.

The media’s obviously incapable of feeling shame or embarrassment.
His beard? A story about this guy’s beard? Beard? How about a story about the 200+ scientific studies showing that hydroxychloroquine works against Covid19

That is *not* a Significant beard. https://t.co/Q2qbRVTiH8
