Justin Trudeau is getting roasted for failing to say LGBTQ2+ properly
A video of Justin Trudeau getting tongue-tied pronouncing LGBTQ2+ has gone viral and people are having a laugh roasting the new elected prime minister.
The clip in question is from a campaign stop in Mississauga on Sept. 11. During the hour-long stop, Trudeau talks about a number of serious issues, recognizes the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in the United States and talks about the controversy about Liberal cabinet minister Jody Wilson-Raybould.

The stumble comes nearly 50 minutes into a question-and-answer session with reporters. Trudeau launches into an impassioned speech about not apologizing for standing up for a women's right to choose, but when he gets to LGBTQ2+ rights he can't get the acronym right until the fourth attempt.
While the video has been on CPAC for over a week, the clip is just now making the rounds on the internet.

Some people are understandably upset and offended by the flub.
I find it very offensive that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau not only can't get through saying LGBTQ without stuttering, but that he also leaves out the IA in LGBTQIA2+. And don't get me started on how the gay community ostracizes the pansexual community by not being LGBTQIAP2+.— Drain Members Only (@PunishedCabage) September 21, 2021
The video has even gone as far as Australia where Sky News, a conservative, right-wing broadcaster, makes fun of the clip.
"He's very big on Black face but he has red face now," one commentator says.

Many people are just getting a laugh out of the clip.

While some people hoped the fumble could impact election results, it seems like it came up just a little too late.
