We don’t think there has ever been a time Americans collectively paid this much attention to a Canadian federal election. Folks south of our border are showing an astonishing amount of interest, and it’s all because of, well, Justin Trudeau and his dashing good looks.
Yep, Americans think our soon-to-be 23rd prime minister is a total babe and they’re taking to Twitter to let us know that we’ve done a great global service by electing him.
We’re glad America approves
Congratulations Canada on electing a hot Prime Minister. pic.twitter.com/DzVkHnXawH

…because that’s what matters.
After all, Canada chose change. Some might even call it the start of a new era
Yes, we’re quite aware.
In fact, our neighbours to the south made a variety of surprisingly astute observations. This tweet, for example, is 104 per cent accurate:
Uh oh. Now everyone is going to dress up as Sexy Canada this coming Halloween.

We think it’s a mighty fine costume idea.
On the plus side, at least Americans are finally willing to admit that some things are just better in Canada
We have no hottie mc bodies in our presidential race. Canada you are outhotting us without even trying. Without even brushing your teeth. — Alisha Rai (@AlishaRai) October 20, 2015
No matter who the US elects in 2016, even if Biden runs, we have already lost the hotness race to Canada.

Biden ain’t got nothing on Trudeau.
And the Yanks seem to hate us a little less
But they are mad that we never informed them of this development
Dear Canada: Why did none of you mention the “Canadian Hottie President” thing until now?

…even though we literally just elected the dude.
And want to state for the record that they think he’s absolutely scrumptious
(Please don’t try and eat him.)
Its citizens have already begun the trade negotiations

Sorry, no returns.
Our borders are going to be flooded
Why yes, I will be among the swarm of American people moving to Canada attempting to seduce the prime minister.

The question is, should we welcome them with open arms?
They even created #PMILF (a.k.a. prime minister I’d like to f@#k) for Trudeau
I’m an American, so take my opinion with a grain of salt, but in a sea of Hollandes and Putins, it would be nice to have a Trudeau. #PMILF

Things are really getting out of hand…
Luckily, there are a few ready with a reality check
How will the Canadians ever tackle climate change when their new prime minister is so hot? Yow!

We’re screwed, right?
