Part of Trudeau's charm comes from what women take to be his boyishness.
But really, it's the boyishness of a child trying to act older than he is. That's what's weird about him -- his 'buzz' isn't the athletic boyishness you find in an young adult male. It's the boyishness of the good child trying to show people that he's really, really good. Like a nine-year-old student trying to impress a teacher.
His office looks like it's from Hogwarts, and two muggles are at play. You don't see a cluttered desk.
It's not easy, you know, to be a father and prime minister ... maybe they can get the public to pay for a male nanny to do all the heavy lifting of fatherhood, and Justin can take over for the good parts?
I jest, of course. Part of his success is probably based on that it's strangely difficult to take him seriously as an opponent. But this 'news story' illustrates how he is marketed to women. Justin is always on the women's side of an issue, eager to be their rhetorical dragon-slayer, to vibrate to their wave-length, to be fun and carefree. Here he is, taking his kid to work, being the perfect dad -- for the camera.
People have to remember -- in real life, this is 'dad' in a house with two nannies! He;s more like the 'dad;'' in Mary Poppins. You know, the stuffy Victorian banker, prudish, picky, and mostly too busy for kids. That's closer to Justin's real life -- the 21st centuries version of Mr. Banks, whose glum home Mary Poppins brightens with her magic.
Like it or not, he is a figure in the pop-culture.
