There’s a state dinner at the White House tomorrow night for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and the son of Pierre Trudeau and leader of Canada’s Liberal Party had some sobering news for his hosts.

World view: rocked. The struggle is real, even to our north.

Americans are going to do their best to make Trudeau welcome and the United States appear progressive, right down to the dinner menu.

Forget light. Each table will be adorned with a sugar sculpture inspired by the splendor of the Rocky Mountains.


Better yet, Trudeau’s wife Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau brought the Canadian flavor by wearing all-Canadian designers whose names we do not know. There’s a lot more to be learned from this visit than we expected.
