The Internet Is Literally Shipping Justin Trudeau And Barack Obama Together

“Trubama.” We are so messy.

1. The context: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is on an official state visit to Washington to meet U.S. President Barack Obama. Pretty standard, eh?

2. …Well, what ensued: A bunch of adorable photos cropping up of the two handsome, neighbouring leaders and their budding ~bromance~. And people could not handle it.

I just wish someone would look at me the way Trudeau looks at Obama...
