Canadian Prime Minister sucker-punches Americans on ’60 Minutes’ before White House visit

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau insulted Americans ahead of a state dinner at the White House on Thursday.

He told CBS’ “60 Minutes” that Americans lack an understanding of what’s going on in the rest of the world.

“I had a conversation one time with an American parent of a friend of mine and she was a big supporter of a presidential candidate. And I pointed out that if that person was to run– if indeed this man was running to be– as Americans like to say, the ‘most powerful man in the world,’ I just felt like it might be nice if they paid a little more attention to the world,” he said. “Having a little more of an awareness of what’s going on in the rest of the world, I think, is what many Canadians would hope for Americans.”

The prime minister also said he’d like his southern neighbors to pay more attention to Canada as well.

“You can’t be Canadian without being aware of at least one other country, the United States, ’cause it’s so important to us. I think we sometimes like to think that, you know, Americans will pay attention to us from time to time, too,” he told the show.

Unfortunately, “60 Minutes” may have proven his point when they misidentified Hollywood star Kim Cattrall as his mother in the piece.
