Of course Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau weighed in on Monday night’s horrific suicide bombing outside Manchester Arena:
Canadians are shocked by the news of the horrific attack in Manchester tonight. Please keep the victims & their families in your thoughts.

Still, you have to wonder what sort of magical wonderland is located north of the United States. By Monday afternoon, the news media had released its daily entry in the effort to prove collusion between Trump and Russia, but that story was overshadowed by a terrorist bomb literally tearing through a concert venue filled with young children meeting their parents after the show.
Meanwhile, in Canada, Trudeau was showing off photos of the pillow fort he’d built with the winner of the prime minister of the day contest. It was kind of cute when Joe Biden was doing that sort of thing, but the addition of the little girl made it less creepy and more adorable.
I know people are getting weary of the Justin Trudeau adoration but COME ON https://t.co/sEzH8X00ag

Oh, come on.
Bella, 5, was picked for her winning idea of what she’d do if she were prime minister for a day:
As prime minster, I would make sure everyone has homes and everyone is safe. I would hug everyone. I would make sure animals and the world around us are kept safe. I would make sure every Canadian is healthy. I would show kindness to everyone.
Hey, that’s the same platform on which Trudeau ran.
Speaking of running … if that weren’t enough, the prime minister also took the time from his run to photobomb some kids on a prom date:

Hold up; there might be a scandal here after all:
That Justin Trudeau prom photobomb that went viral was part of a staged publicity campaign: https://t.co/AIZp9Ywggw

@macleans Trudeau is making a scrapbook?? Why does the leader of a country need a publicity campaign? Isn't that what an election is?

@macleans Hmmm, maybe our PM should bring his photographer to Emerson and "photobomb" refugees crossing the border illegally

But seriously, Canada looks great. All those Hollywood celebrities who’d said they were moving there if Trump won really ought to consider following through.
