Texas Sen. Ted Cruz implying on social media that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a “young socialist” due to the latter’s warm remarks on the passing of Fidel Castro is both funny and tragic.
Funny because Trudeau’s actually only one year younger than the 45-year-old Cruz. That’s right, our hip young progressive PM isn’t all that young. While he’s kept in shape and is blessed with great hair, Trudeau is middle aged.
It’s tragic though, because it shows being a “young socialist” clearly has more to do with state of mind than actual age.
