Did you all see Canadian Prime Minister Justin
Bieber Trudeau’s statement on Fidel Castro’s death? Good heaven, I haven’t seen a such a slobbering fawning display since Andrea Mitchell interviewed Hillary Clinton –
“It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President.
“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.
“While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”.
“I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.
“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.”
Yeah – because a dictator who suppressed his own people, murdered political dissidents, and lived like a freaking emperor while his citizens starved is soooo worthy of renown.
However, the internet took the PM’s tone-deaf statement and came up with their own adoring descriptions of despicable villains from history (and some from fiction). There’s even a hashtag – #TrudeauEulogy.

Nero soaked Christians in oil and set them ablaze. But he also limited the need for lights and kept the religious warm. #TrudeauEulogies

I gotta hand it to Canada – their Prime Minister might be a total dork (not to mention a socialist sleazeball), but at least he’s good for entertainment.
