Justin Trudeau attended a panel discussion for the New York Times in Toronto on Thursday where he continuously bragged about taking selfies shirtless.

“And I’m like, ‘OK watch, I’m going to fake— take off my shirt.’ That actually wasn’t in any of the pictures series, but there’s a first picture I don’t think he got of me saying, ‘Yeah I’ll take off my shirt to be in the background.’ Cause it was a thing,” Trudeau said.

Trudeau’s executive assistant Adam Scotti is a photographer who snaps Trudeau for viral pictures and posts them online.
