Au revoir, Princess Diana, there's a new political heartthrob for the history books
It’s not every day that a politician steps outside of their comfort zone and proves their worth to the general public. Earlier today, however, Justin Trudeau did just that by landing a 900 (two and a half spins) and winning a bronze medal at the X-Games Skateboarding Big Air event.
Trudeau, who is the second youngest Prime Minister of all time, offered the following statement moments after receiving his bronze medal:
“I’m in shock. Super grateful to my family and friends. Special shout out to my sponsors: Monster Energy, Element Skateboards, Spitfire Wheels, The Liberal Party of Canada, and Independent Trucks. To everyone who voted for me, both in the Canadian election and on the X-Games panel: Thank you. Seriously, thank you.”
Well Justin, as someone who totally would have voted for you if they were Canadian, you are very welcome. You’re radical as hell and we love you.
