I have heard of Pierre Trudeau. I have heard of Justine Trudeau, Sophie and Margaret.
But I have never heard of ‘Joe Trudeau’.
Perhaps he is the black sheep of the Trudeau family we never hear about. Every family has one.
In discussing PM Justin Trudeau’s visit with Donald Trump yesterday, the presidential press secretary Sean Spicer referred to our PM as ‘Joe’.
One can easily see in a high pressure gig like press secretary you could easily mis-speak.
But to just gloss over it and not correct yourself makes one question if he really knows the PM’s name.
An explanation could be Spicer was consumed with Trump’s latest problem; his national security advisor who had to resign because he was too cozy with the Russians.
Or maybe he was thinking of the other ‘Joe’ we had as PM, Joe Clark?
Everyone makes that mistake!
