It is not secret, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is articulate, smart, and great at explaining things. Meanwhile, United States President Donald Trump is... not as articulate or smart at explaining things.
To illustrate that glaring difference, PoliticsVideoChannel created and posted a buzzworthy video over the weekend that's gone viral with more than 1.92 million views, over 47,000 "likes" and nearly 22,000 retweets on Twitter. The footage shows Trudeau explaining computers in stunning and articulate detail contrasted with the moment Trump explained uranium. One world leader sounded intelligent while the other sounded unintelligent.
Trudeau, 46, broke down the way regular computers work as binary systems compared to how quantum computers work. He explained that quantum computers allow for more complex information to be encoded into a single bit where typical computers encoded using ones and zeros, which indicates either on or off. He explained it casually, saying "as we know" like it is just general knowledge for anybody listening.
To compare, Trump, 72, asked someone "you know what uranium is, right? A thing called nuclear weapons and other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium including some bad things."
Most people who have sat through simple English classes know that among the first rules teachers give is not to describe things using the word "things," which Trump did in this video repeatedly, and it's typical of the way he explains many concepts.
