Trudeau Had The Hiccups On Live TV & Twitter Couldn't Handle It
Hiccups can happen at the worst times no matter how hard you try to get rid of them. Even the Prime Minister of Canada can't escape them during a live national broadcast. Justin Trudeau hiccups during his press conference and, of course, it leaves Twitter completely fascinated.
Right from the start on June 2, Trudeau was dealing with hiccups.
Sometimes they were audible but other times you could only tell it was happening by brief pauses in his speech or his chest moving.
Then, just six minutes into his address, he hiccuped loudly in the middle of a sentence.
It was so audible that he immediately brought his hand up to his mouth.
"Excuse me," he said.
He then finished his sentence but was smiling as he did so.
Since this happened live on national TV, a lot of people saw it and were quick to come online to talk about it.
On Twitter, so many got a laugh out of the unfortunate timing of Trudeau's hiccups.
"Do a shot every time Trudeau hiccups," one person tweeted.
Another said, "Prime Minister Trudeau has the hiccups and I can't look away."
"We've all been there," someone else mentioned.

Usually, Trudeau has a glass of water on the podium while he gives his daily address and he occasionally sips from it.
However, there didn't seem to be one this time which is unfortunate luck.
"Everyone stop what you're doing. Justin Trudeau has the hiccups, live," someone tweeted.
Another person mentioned that Trudeau was "much more gracious" than they are when they get them.

Since Trudeau has been getting in front of the cameras on an almost daily basis, some unexpected moments are bound to happen.
A couple of weeks before this happened, his press conference was invaded by a wasp.
He even had to swat it away from his face as it got really close to him.
Plus, nobody will ever forget his "speaking moistly" sensation.
