Justin Trudeau Has This To Say About His Terrible 'Peoplekind' Comment That Went Viral

Oh Trudeau!

If you missed the news that the world was talking about earlier this week surrounding Justin Trudeau, here's the scoop.  On February 1st Trudeau was speaking at a town hall in Edmonton. During the Q&A portion of the event a woman stood up to ask a question surrounding religion. In the phrasing of the question she used the word mankind to which Trudeau jumped in to correct. He responded saying "WE like to say ‘peoplekind,’ not necessarily mankind, it’s more inclusive.”

The audience took it for what it was, a TERRIBLE dad joke. However the world caught wind of his comment and teased and roasted him relentlessly on it. 

Now a few days later, since the clip has gone viral, Trudeau has made a public comment on his 'peoplekind' joke. 

"I made a dumb joke a few days ago that seems to have gone a little viral in the room on the 'peoplekind' comment," He said without being prompted by reporters.

"It played well in the room and in context. Out of context, it doesn't play so well," he added.

"It's a little reminder to me that I shouldn't be making jokes even when I think they're funny."
