Justin Trudeau’s summer haircut draws comparisons to Jim Carrey in ‘Dumb and Dumber’

Justin Trudeau’s new haircut was all everyone was buzzing about with Mark Daniell likening it to Lloyd Christmas, the not-so-bright character in Dumb and Dumber, while it was also compared to Russell Crowe in Gladiator by Brian Lilley in his Trudeau hair-inspired column.

However, based on how the prime minister is leading the country lately, Daniell’s take may be more accurate – and widely agreed on.

‘CANADA IS COMMUNIST’: Joe Rogan says country must dump Justin Trudeau

Apparently, Joe Rogan doesn’t like Trudeau. (It’s a long line to join that club, Joe, so be patient.)

The podcaster lashed out at Canada’s prime minister on The Joe Rogan Experience, Daniell reported, admitting he was once a fan but his opinion shifted as he watched Trudeau’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, then sank even further with his response to the trucker protest in Ottawa earlier this year.

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

To go from being considered a “confident” “good-looking guy who “seems sweet” to being called “a f***ing dictator” who doesn’t take criticism well – and now with a terrible haircut to boot? Poor Trudeau. But you know who’s suffering more? Canadians.

FUREY: Trudeau’s now being laughed at – the reaction no politician wants

If Trudeau wants people to stop roasting his new haircut, he might want to start having some fun with it, let people know he is in on the joke, too (or, at the very least, outwardly pretend he’s also laughing), according to Anthony Furey.

Otherwise, some Rogaine might help? Or perhaps the new ‘do was all an attempt to distract Canadians from what he isn’t doing for the country.

SMOL: Trudeau’s hippy look for military uniform is shameful

Retired military intelligence officer Robert Smol, who proudly wore the traditional, professional Canadian Forces uniform for more than 20 years, has a lot to say about the revamp made to the Forces’ new hippy-dippy uniform policy, which the Trudeau government sees as a way of drumming up more interest for younger folks to consider a military career.

No way, writes Smol, who concedes that perhaps the military’s new casual, self-customizable look is the way of the future. He, and so many others, just don’t have to like it.

‘Baywatch’ star Donna D’Errico blasts trolls who branded her ‘too old to wear a bikini’

Donna D’Errico, who is best known for playing Donna Marco in the hit series Baywatch, has hit back at trolls who said she was “too old to wear a bikini.”

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

The best part? She took to her Instagram post, which accompanied the 54-year-old … in a bikini.

D’Errico could make a potato sack look good, so if she wants to rock a sexy two-piece on the beach, taking out the garbage, at the grocery store, then so be it. Let the girl – and girls – live!
