We’re certain that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau does more than just attend pride parades while wearing Ramadan-themed socks and build pillow forts in his office — it just seems that way to those of us in the States.

And while the U.S. was struggling to work out a tax reform plan and respond to another missile launch by North Korea, Trudeau was again up to some serious — and seriously woke — business.

As President Trump continues to watch the courts eat away at his ban on transgender troops, Trudeau was offering a formal apology to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and two-spirit Canadians who had suffered oppression under any of the government’s federal programs.

Cue all the posts from folks who murmured about moving to Canada if Trump were to win, asking if Trudeau could be our president too.

Hey, how’d you get in this thread?
