Justin Trudeau doesn’t go off the teleprompter very often and now we all know why. Speaking off the cuff on Tuesday, Trudeau offered a piece of advice for mask-wearing that even horrified him. He realized it as soon as he said it. “If people want to wear a mask that is okay. It protects others more than it protects you because it prevents you from breathing or speaking…moistly on them.,” he stuttered and then added, “what a terrible image!” This is the comic relief we needed.

Twitter responded predictably. Some heroes don’t wear capes. They make memes.

Because unless you're "connected" it's a tad difficult to buy a cop or politician. In fact that only gets you jailed. Unless you're "connected" of course! #speakingmoistly #TrudeauIsNotFitForOffice pic.twitter.com/mxgrhz7YBP
