Blind to Cuban history, and blinkered by his late father’s fairy tales about Fidel Castro, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s statement on the death of the Cuban dictator was an embarrassment of international proportions.
He ignored the brutal truth about the man, dancing around it like a clown in a parade dodging horse droppings.
Today he is likely searching for his tattered Che Guevara T-shirt to wear in nostalgic homage.
Good laughs – #trudeaueulogies
Mocked on the world stage – Trudeau called Castro a ‘remarkable leader.’ Twitter imagined what he would say about Stalin.
