Sean Spicer just called the Canadian Prime Minister ‘Joe Trudeau’

Joseph McCormick February 15, 2017

Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday made yet another blunder by referring to the Candian Prime Minster as ‘Joe Trudeau’.

His comments came after Justin Trudeau made his first official visit to the White House since Trump took power.

“Yesterday the president set — had an incredibly productive set of meetings and discussions with Prime Minster Joe Trudeau of Canada,” Sean Spicer said during his daily press briefing on Tuesday.

He added: “Focusing on our shared commitment to close co-operation in addressing both the challenges facing our two countries and the problems throughout the world. Our countries share a profound economic interest, with more than $2 billion in two-way trade flowing across our border every day.”

Spicer’s blunder comes just a day after a photo of the Canadian Prime Minister staring at Trump’s outstretched palm went viral and became an internet meme.
Naturally the internet went wild.

The blunder also comes just days after a Dominican national newspaper accidentally printed a photo of Alec Baldwin doing his cutting Trump impression, in place of the real President.

For those unfamiliar with Baldwin’s Trump, check it out here via SNL, where the President makes out with Russian President ‘Putin’.

Baldwin is one of a raft of SNL stars who have taken on Trump and his associates, with Melissa McCarthy taking aim at Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Rosie O’Donnell, who is desperate to take on Steve Bannon, and Kate McKinnon who relentlessly mocked Trump in her Hillary Clinton guise.
