François Legault on "Tout le monde en parle" on September 25.

François Legault continues to deliver prime meme fodder for ravenous internauts. The unwitting Quebec premier has faced some intense tongue-in-cheek scrutiny for his dramatic expressions in the company of his opponents during televised events. The most recent example was a September 25 appearance on Radio-Canada's Tout le monde en parle, where the CAQ leader debuted a relentlessly cheerful grin, much to the discomfort of several spectators.

Viewers on social media accused Legault of "forcing" the smile or overcompensating for the impatient "duck face" and grimaces that defined both leaders' debates.

"Mr. Legault's entourage had to tell him to smile more but now it's a bit too much. It's quite funny."

"Hahaha Legault's beautiful forced smile."

"François Legault's forced smile reminds me of Lenny's after his facelift"

"Is Legault's smile already a meme?"


"Is it just me or is [François] Legault forcing himself to smile?

"It's Monday!! Keep smiling 😁 Like Legault yesterday on #TLMEP"

"Learning a new skill on the campaign trail 😉 Nice effort though."

"Legault's smile on #tlmep is a nervous, awkward smile."
