Oh, Trump. I really do often wish that libs weren’t so psychotically upset that he’s in the White House, because love him or hate him, he is a hilarious president.
And what he just told Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the phone as they discussed the highly sensitive issue of trade tariffs is just about the most Trumpian thing ever.
Speaking of leftists who can’t take a joke, however, this story was broken by CNN who breathlessly delivered the super special report on the top secret joke that Trump dropped on the PM.
According to CNN, who got it from an anonymous source, this is what supposedly transpired in a May 25 phone call between the two leaders about new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports Trump has imposed on our neighbor to the North:
According to the sources, Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a “national security” issue. In response, Trump quipped to Trudeau, “Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?” referring to the War of 1812.
“Unfortunately, as CNN makes sure to point out, Trump got his facts a little crossed up: Yes, the White House was set ablaze during the War of 1812, but it was the British who were lighting fires. And like most Trump mix-ups, there’s a kernel of truth somewhere in there,” the Daily Wire explains. CNN oh-so-helpfully clarified that:
Historians note the British attack on Washington was in retaliation for the American attack on York, Ontario, in territory that eventually became Canada, which was then a British colony.
CNN, eager to milk this story for all it was worth, asked its sources how Trudeau received the Trumpian quip.
“To the degree one can ever take what is said as a joke. The impact on Canada and ultimately on workers in the US won’t be a laughing matter,” replied the source, who we can certainly confirm cannot take a joke themselves.
