Men drop to their knees to ask Trudeau to run for president

So this is what it’s come to, eh?

Americans dropping to their knees to beg the leader of another country to run for president of the United States.

It happened yesterday to Canada’s prime minister when he was visiting a cafe in New York.

Justin Trudeau politely declined, noting he’s not an American citizen. But the fellas were having none of it, putting Trudeau in the awkward position of moving on past two people on their knees.

Trudeau was in New York to announce that Canada would seek a seat on the United Nations’ Security Council.

    Trudeau was elected because of his last name. The Libs will last one term in power under him.

      Yikes.

      They elected him because they thought he was a cartoonist? (Garry Trudeau, creator of “Doonsbury”)

      • Rob

        not just a cartoonist, also Canadian

  • MrE85

    We tried to take Canada in 1812 and failed. Now some of us still want to surrender.

  • Jeff C.

    Maybe they were just trying to be Mitt Romney and Trump?

  • Rob

    Guys, off your knees – please!

    The irony of American voter anger is most of us got what we wanted from President Barack Obama and Congress. Look, Republicans elected Representatives and Senators to Congress from 2010 – 2014 for the expressly desired purpose of stopping Obama’s goals before they got started. For the most part, that strategy had been so successful, President Obama has had to use Executive Action to accomplish tasks in 2015 and 16. Yet, the Republican electorate still isn’t happy with the results. Why? Democrats elected Barack Obama to change America in 2008 and 2012. He’s reduced unemployment, raised minimum wage, tried to change health care, and helped revitalize the automotive industry. He’s normalizing relations with Iran AND Cuba, and has appointed a diverse group of judges to the Supreme Court. Now, maybe the changes weren’t BIG newsworthy changes, but they too aren’t walking away from 8 years of Obama’s leadership empty handed. Either the problems we assume America has now in 2016 are bigger than we, the voters, have let on, OR, we the voters have changed, like technology, and no longer want to work politely with each other anymore.
