Go Ahead and Sniffle: It’s Okay to Feel Jealous of Canada While Viewing Pictures of Justin Trudeau at Toronto Pride

My fellow Americans, I think I know how some of you feel when you see all these pictures of Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau at Toronto’s Gay Pride Parade; there’s a little tugging at your heart, isn’t there?

A sense of longing, perhaps, for what we had in our own President not so long ago …

… remembering that feeling of swelled hearts, when 44 was still our representative.

Heck, even Trudeau’s rainbow socks are doubly meaningful; “Eid Mubarak” is a Muslim greeting during Eid festivals.

While 45 does his best to shut out Muslims (including ending the longstanding traditional White House Ramadan dinner), we’ll have to find solace in our Northern neighbors. I’m sure they don’t mind sharing … right, Canada?

Please, O Canada?

(It’s what Lin-Manuel Miranda would want.)

    As a patriotic Canadian I feel obligated to say: sorry.
    Also it’s hard not to list all of the legit problems with Justin but I’m going to let those go for now. It is amazing and I am proud that he is our first PM to walk in Pride Parades.

      Did you see that AFN Chief Bellegarde also walked in Pride for the first time? I was proud.
