It is now impossible to distinguish reality from parody in Canadian politics

Justin Trudeau, leader of the federal Liberal party, recently commented that politicians are less trusted than used car salesmen and journalists. After being upbraided by the head of the used car association for besmirching their profession and for using the sexist term "salesman" Trudeau apologized to the post original consumer vehicular saleshumans on twitter, and later notes that if he were a used car salesentity, he wouldn't want to be compared to politicians, either.

The utterly bizarre thing is that I can see the point.
