Obama Mocks Cruz at State Dinner With Canada
At tonight’s state dinner with Canada, President Obama took a swipe at Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, who was born in Canada.
Via the pool report:
The toast was filed with jokes. Among them: “If things get out of hand, remember the prime minister used to work as a bouncer.”
Referencing singer Justin Bieber, POTUS said Trudeau in America may well be “the most popular Canadian named Justin.”
POTUS also talked about shared values of equality and opportunity, saying that’s having an effect on the 2016 presidential election.
“Where else could a boy born in Calgary run for president of the United States?”
POTUS raised his glass to, among other things, the “great alliance” between U.S. and Canada.
