At a science event with Bill Nye, Justin Trudeau – one of the most esteemed scientific minds of our age – had this to say about scientists:
“Every human being starts off as a scientist. When you are a baby, you’re a scientist. If I make this noise, wow, I get milk.'”
A few versions of Trudeau’s “wisdom” were quoted, including the one below by Paul Wells:
"Every living thing starts as a scientist. When you are a baby, you're a scientist," the PM says."'If I make this noise, I get milk.'"

Later, a video emerged of the comments, with Trudeau apparently saying every human being starts of as a scientist:
As if that gem of ‘wisdom’ wasn’t enough, Trudeau also falsely called Science Minister Kirsty Duncan a Nobel Prize winner, even though she is not.
PMJT just called Kirsty Duncan a "Nobel Prize-winning scientist" for her contribution to IPCC, which won Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.
But IPCC issued a statement in 2012 saying calling any individual who worked on the group's research such is "incorrect." https://t.co/yYAbGwkcCS

So, Trudeau is both making a fool of himself once again and lying as usual.
Just another day at the office (AKA outside the office doing another photo-op) for Justin.
Patrice O’ Hamilton summed things up perfectly on Twitter:
“I’m paying him for this? The west is aflame, NAFTA half dead, budget just crashed in a heap, and he does milk jokes? Go to the office and get working…..geez already.”
