Justin Trudeau Somehow Got Tickets To See "Hamilton" In New York

Who else was in the room when it happened?

Posted on

You know Hamilton, the hit Broadway musical that's sold out from now until the end of time? And how if you ever want to see it you basically have to be willing to sell an organ or commit murder?

Well, guess who got tickets! Justin Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau not only caught the show, but they also got a photo with Alexander Hamilton himself.

QUICK WHAT RHYMES WITH CANADA (Honor to meet you both)

Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted the photo and even included a callback to the time he rapped about Canada on How I Met Your Mother.

Trudeau was in New York to sign a climate change treaty at the United Nations. Or PERHAPS he actually just went down because he did something terrible for a pair of tickets.

Did he sell the Northwest Territories? Are they going to change the name of Windsor to South Detroit? Do we all have to use Fahrenheit from now on???

People didn't care how he got the tickets, though. They just wanted him to share the wealth.

YO JUSTIN TRUDEAU HOOK ME UP WITH HAMILTON TICKETS PLS https://t.co/0ITleHH7yG

@JustinTrudeau I voted for you please get me a ticket to Hamilton!

Some people even tried it bilingually.

.@JustinTrudeau Can you help me get Hamilton tickets? Pouvez-vous me aider à obtenir des billets pour Hamilton? Thanks. Merci.

Did he even see the damn musical? Then why isn't he talking about it non-stop like everyone else?

@JustinTrudeau YOU SAW HAMILTON AND YOURE NOT TWEETING ABOUT IT ???

At least Lin-Manuel seemed pretty stoked about the whole thing.

And yes the PM of Canada is delightful. We literally geeked out about Shakespeare for like 5 minutes. I'm in love with him too y'all.

Aww.

And for the record: You can totally rhyme stuff with Canada.
