The August issue of Rolling Stone magazine features Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the cover with the question, “Why can’t he be our president?”
Rolling Stone’s article features an in-depth look at Trudeau, who is praised as a “progressive, rational, forward-thinking leader” by writer Stephen Rodrick.
Detailed comparisons between Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump are drawn throughout the text, including how they speak, their hair color, and the roles of their children in their administrations (non-existent for Trudeau because his kids are too young, although Trudeau himself is a second-generation PM after his father Pierre).
“His words are coherent and will not need to be run through Google Translate when he is done,” Rodrick writes of Trudeau.
“Trump’s son met with Russian nationals who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton. Trudeau’s foreign minister is Chrystia Freeland, a Canadian of Ukrainian descent who is banned in Putin’s Russia,” he continued.
