Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a toast to the Queen of England at the Commonwealth Heads of Government dinner in Malta. During the toast, Trudeau reminded the Queen he was the twelfth Canadian prime minister to serve during her reign and that his father, Pierre Trudeau, was the fourth. While it was of course meant to honor the lasting power of her legacy, the Monarchy decided to have some fun with it on Twitter:
Trudeau, a charmer whose good looks were enough to get the world to care about Canadian politics, had the perfect response:
On the contrary, you are forever young. I was honoured to toast your lifetime of service tonight. https://t.co/xcXGiSj6OT— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) November 27, 2015
Forever young. This guy is unstoppable. He has that magic skill where if someone even jokingly says he was being insulting, he manages to transform it into an even better compliment. Sounds like Trudeau is the kind of politician that will get a few deals through during his term in office.
