Proving that it truly is an entertainment website, E! news has come out with the top twelve “hottest” politicians.
And it’s a mixed bag.
The number one position brings no surprises. It is, of course, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, that frequently shirtless, frequently smiling, refugee-hugging progressive nice-guy, the anti-venom you would take if Trump stung you.
Number 2 also makes sense – it is classically good-looking leader of the Venezuelan opposition and political prisoner, Leopoldo López.
Then there are a couple of strange choices. The grandmothers at E! appear to have been attracted by a kind of clean, conservative, square-jawed paternal type who shaves thrice a day and likes his tie pressure set to “noose”. Taking bronze, we have world’s most unpopular politician, Enrique Peña Nieto, currently President of Mexico.
And, in a similar vein, Argentina’s very own Juan Manuel Urtubey, the Governor of Salta, who looks both very religious and very athletic. He comes in at number 10.
Two Argentines make the cut. The above mentioned Juan Manuel, and PRO stripling, Pedro Robledo, who is currently Deputy Youth Secretary but would someday like to be President – he is the sixth “sexiest” politician.
There’s also South African polly, Tim Harris, who shares a color scheme with President Macri.
To conclude, we give you fourth “sexiest” politician, Brazilian mayor of the town of Pelotas, Eduardo Leite, “en pelotas”, drinking mate, and copying directly from an exercise book.
