Donald Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, has slipped up yet again, this time appearing to call the Canadian prime minister “Joe Trudeau” instead of Justin Trudeau at the start of his daily briefing on Tuesday.
“Yesterday the president set — had an incredibly productive set of meetings and discussions with Prime Minster Joe Trudeau of Canada,” Spicer said, “focusing on our shared commitment to close co-operation in addressing both the challenges facing our two countries and the problems throughout the world. Our countries share a profound economic interest, with more than $2 billion in two-way trade flowing across our border every day.”

Spicer has faced weeks of mockery for his daily slips of the tongue.
Twitter was quick to respond to Spicer’s latest gaff:
72% of Canadians aren't sure if Joe Trudeau is ready to be prime minister

RIP Joe Trudeau, one of the many lives lost at the Bowling Green Massacre

Sean Spicer mistakenly refers to Canada's PM as Joe Trudeau. Coincidentally Justin Trudeau mistakenly refers to Spicer as Melissa McCarthy.

#JoeTrudeau was the sole survivor of the Bowling Green Massacre who went on to become the Prime Minister of Columbia.
