Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who differs from the Trump administration not just in terms of aesthetics but also in the principle of accepting immigrants and refugees, treated First Lady Ivanka Trump to an educational experience.

Ivanka Trump was among Trudeau's 600 hot dates (including 125 ambassadors to the United Nations) to see the Broadway musical Come From Away. The show is about Gander, Newfoundland, a tiny town that housed thousands of people who were stranded when North America closed its airspace on September 11th, 2001.

The "hot date" is also the ultimate shade, as the musical sings about generosity towards people in need, including (gasp!) Muslims facing prejudice in the wake of the attacks.

Ivanka Trump was taking in the Broadway musical just as a federal judge put a nationwide restraining order on Donald Trump's Muslim Ban 2.0, and he raged against the ruling at a campaign-style rally in Nashville, NBC News reported.

Who knows if the message went over Ivanka's pristinely coiffed head, or if she spent the entire show looking around to stare lustily at Justin Trudeau.

Trudeau introduced the show, saying, "The world gets to see what it is to lean on each other and be there for each other through the darkest times."

Here's hoping Ivanka was listening.

My dad suggests she just might have had an ulterior motive.
