Internet Abuzz After Quantum Computing Lesson by Canadian PM Trudeau

TORONTO — The internet was abuzz with compliment for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday after clips showing him schooling a reporter on quantum computing went viral.

While political opponents learned a lesson about underestimating the photogenic Trudeau, forty-four, during latest year'south astonishment electoral upset, the unnamed reporter fell into the same trap during an event at a Canadian Univ on Friday when he jokingly certified the former teacher'south knowledge.

Trudeau'south explanation on quantum computing generated cheers and applause from the room and set social media abuzz.

"I was love YEAHH I voted for this guy," said a Twitter user with the handle @smoakoverwatch.

Canadian writer Anakana Schofield tweeted about the reporter'south experience: "This is what teenagers call 'getting owned,'" using a colloquial expression for pronounce defeat.

The exchange began when the reporter told Trudeau: "Morning, sir, I was going to ask you to clarify quantum computing" but quickly added a question on when the prime minister expected Canada to resume its mission against ISIS militants occupying parts of Iraq and Syria.

Trudeau immediately shot back with an explanation on quantum computers, explaining how they don't work on the principles of conventional physics and are more powerful than current mainstream computers.

"I wish there were more love him," said a Twitter user with the handle @tonticologo.

Trudeau addressed Canada'south actions against ISIS militants directly afterward, although he didn't announce any new measures.

The son of a former prime minister, Trudeau led his center-left Liberals to a majority triumph in latest year'south election with a campaign that emphasized hope and optimism. His political opponents had attacked him as "just not prepared" for the job, implying his best feature was his hair rather than his intellectual prowess.
