Twitter Just Exploded Over Trump’s Embarrassing Press Conference With Justin Trudeau

Today President Donald Trump met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for meetings about the role of women in the workforce and a joint press conference (video below). The press conference was awkward, to say the least. Trudeau has already made pointed attacks at Trump’s signature ‘Muslim ban’ – a travel ban targeting seven majority-Muslim countries that the courts have since struck down. He condemned Trump’s signature xenophobic fear-mongering about refugees and reached out to the displaced and endangered people of the world:

During the press conference the two men tried to talk about things America and Canada, historic allies, have in common. They struggled. Trudeau is a thoughtful and conscientious progressive while Trump is a bigoted ignoramus and their policies are a million miles apart.


Trudeau exuded confidence and intellect, speaking smoothly and calmly in both English and French. Trump, meanwhile, slurred words when he read from a script and ad libbed his way through the question and answer time by adding “very very” to every sentence and saying vague things about terrorism.

Twitter had a field day with the cringe-worthy press conference, eviscerating Trump and lauding Trudeau. Twitter users certainly had a lot of material to work with, and the reactions they came up with did not disappoint:
