Justin Trudeau And Barack Obama Are Having The Most Brotastic State Visit

And Obama said "Eh."

Posted on

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Barack Obama just took part in the official welcome ceremony for Trudeau's Washington visit. We can now declare that the bromance is real, and our countries are in love.


The leaders watched as men in hats with large drums passed by, perhaps symbolizing the beating heart of Canada-U.S. relations — and that time we beat the Americans in the War of 1812.

"It's about time, eh?" Obama said of the visit, and then trolled Canada hard. "There are some things we will probably never agree on. Whose beer is better, who's better at hockey." He noted the current Stanley Cup champs reside in his hometown, Chicago.

Pres. Obama jokes to Canadian PM Trudeau: "Where's the Stanley Cup right now? I'm sorry, is it in my hometown?"
