If you were hoping for another “speaking moistly” moment, you could be disappointed! The prime minister has revealed that he’s avoiding "moistness” for the time being, after his hilarious phrase went viral earlier this year.

This week, Justin Trudeau appeared on the Halifax-based comedy show This Hour Has 22 Minutes, hosted by Mark Critch.

While the host joked about many things during the five-minute interview, including Donald Trump, the COVID-19 alert app and NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, Critch’s first question was about Trudeau’s famous “speaking moistly” moment.

The virtual interview began with Critch asking the PM, “How are ya? Are you feeling moist?”

Laughing, Trudeau responded, “I’m staying away from moistness but I change my mask regularly because of that!”

The iconic “speaking moistly” phrase was created back in April when Trudeau said the words during a press conference and then instantly regretted it.

During the 22 Minutes interview, the prime minister was also asked about the Canada-U.S. border.

He made it clear that Trump would not have the final say when it comes to reopening travel between the two countries.

“Decisions on what Canadians do with the border will be made here in Canada,” Trudeau said.
