Canadian journalist Ezra Levant, co-founder of The Rebel Media, took aim once again at his country's new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday, calling him "stupid."

In an interview with Maclean's, Levant said Trudeau of the Liberal party "is stupid. He’s the kind of guy who says, ‘I don’t know pi to the 18th decibel point.’ He’s stupid. Do you think he knows the difference between Hamas and hummus? He is stupid."

The point about Hamas particularly strikes a chord given that Trudeau appointed Omar Alghabra as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Alghabra was previously the head of the radical Canadian Arab Federation (CAF), which ran afoul of the state for its open support of Hamas.

Levant also criticized Trudeau over the fact that while taking part in Maclean's 60-second quiz challenge, the prime minister answered a question asking his "favorite Baltic nation" by responding: "that’s not a thing."

All three Baltic nations - Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania - are NATO allies of Canada, and Canada was in fact the first G7 nation to recognize Latvia's independence in 1991.

Trudeau later tried to justify his statement, saying that what he meant by the remark was not that he didn't know there are Baltic nations, but rather that choosing a favorite Baltic nation should not be a thing. He added that he used to date a woman from a Baltic state.

"On the spur of the moment while shooting the 60-second video, he said, he decided that no good could come from answering the question with reference to any specific country. So he declined as diplomatically as he could," claimed the paper citing Trudeau.

But Levant gave him no slack for saying the Baltic nations are "not a thing," noting in his latest show on Sunday that the Baltic states are under constant threat from Russia, and adding that former Prime Minister Stephen Harper took a key role in stopping an invasion.

Trudeau is "so stupid. He doesn’t know what Baltic countries are…he didn’t know that they are NATO allies," said Levant. "He’s a stupid as he looks…that was Canada (deterring Russia under Harper) until this buffoon got elected…we call Trudeau the stupidest leader of the world."
