Canadian prime minister brings Trudeaumania to White House
The Canadian Press is reporting that "Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau brought Trudeaumania to America on Thursday and the verdict was a resounding thumbs-up. 'Breath of fresh air', 'impressive' and 'very impressive' was how some of the guests at a splashy White House state dinner in Canada's honor described the country's new leader."
American media called it a family reunion. The last time a Canadian Prime Minister attended a State dinner at the Whitehouse was 19 years ago when his father went. Like his father before him, Justin has class. When asked to denounce Donald Trump he said: "I'm not going to pick a fight with Donald Trump right now. I'm not going to support him either, obviously." He said he's anxious to see how the country "deals with what is obviously a very real set of issues around frustration towards the body politic that we've seen in various iterations around the world."
