Last night, Justin Trudeau took Ivanka Trump out to a Broadway musical. What might seem like a kind, gracious gesture to most actually had a hidden meaning. The musical was "Come From Away," which is all about the importance of helping foreigners in need. Considering her father's harsh immigration and foreign aid policies, this was likely a pointed move on Trudeau's part.
Trudeau gave a short speech before the musical, praising the lessons that the musical offers. “The world gets to see what it is to lean on each other and be there for each other through the darkest times. There is no relationship quite like the friendship between Canada and the United States. This story, this amazing show, is very much about that, and it’s about friendship as well," said Trudeau.
"Come From Away" tells the story of passengers on one of the diverted 9/11 planes who find themselves stranded in Newfoundland. True to real life, the locals came to their aid, helping in any way they could.
I guess what we learned from this is that our prime minister knows how to throw some major shade.
