On Wednesday morning, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair continued to try to prove how cool and chill he is by delivering the weather forecast on CHCH's morning show in Hamilton, Ont. Everyone seems to agree he nailed it.
"Sunny, sunny, sunny," Mulcair says. Twice he mentions how the weather will be perfectly cool for sleeping.
He even gets all science-y, talking about the high-pressure system that's causing the glorious weather — but not before ever-so-slightly struggling to describe the weather map. He goes with...er... "weather area."
Even the soundless video of Mulcair learning to use the weather map is entertaining. Like when he makes the most awkward arm gesture ever.
"Dolki and Gabbaba"
And when he maybe accidentally makes a gun shape with his hand.
Gang signs out the window, ya bish.
And when he needs help with the remote thing.
ALSO WHEN HE GIGGLES.
All in all, it went well. No F-bombs, no storms shaped like dicks. Mulcair's NDP is leading in the polls right now, though, so it's not likely he'll drop politics for meteorology anytime soon.
But do not fear. We've reimagined him as an undaunted weatherman so you don't have to.
Here he is as Brick Tamland, intrepid 1970s weather reporter in Anchorman.
Here he is as Nicolas Cage.
And Ollie Williams from Family Guy.
Here he just cheerfully looks out at a mega death storm, a.k.a. The Perfect Storm.
NBD for Weatherman Mulcair.
Nor does he shy away from electrical daggers stabbing the night sky.
"When did the Super Cell storm first speak with Nigel Wright about Mike Duffy’s expenses?”
