Trudeau trashing Trump gets the spotlight on late night TV in the United States

Canada and Trudeau are in the spotlight for the PM's actions once again, and the whole world is talking about him.

It seems Trevor Noah is no different, as the host of the The Daily Show used his platform to poke fun at Trudeau for the recently-surfaced video of him talking smack about Trump to other world leaders. 

Trudeau, U.K. PM Boris Johnson, Princess Anne, French president Emmanuel Macron and Dutch PM Mark Rutte were caught on film gossiping about Trump's press etiquette two nights ago, and Noah called the gaffe something "nobody has seen before."

"Man, that video is amazing for two reasons. One, it is crazy that we were able to hear a private conversation between major leaders. Like, did they not know this was happening?" Noah asked jokingly during his show the other night.

"And two, that when world leaders get together, they’re gossipy bitches just like the rest of us. I thought after meetings with Trump, world leaders would be like, 'OK, we need to go back and draw up a new treaty.' Instead, they’re out here like, 'What was he wearing?'"

Following the release of the video, Trump said Trudeau is "a nice guy," but that "he's two-faced."

And in a shocking turn of events, Noah actually agreed with The President on something.

"To be fair, Trump’s not wrong," he said. "Justin Trudeau is two-faced. He’s got a white one and a brown one."

Following the incident with fellow world leaders, Trump left the NATO summit in Britain early and flew home. 

And in a hilarious jab at Trump, Noah said he understood why. 

"Mr. President, you shouldn’t be in a place where people are going to laugh at you behind your back," he said. "You get on Air Force One and you fly straight back home, where we promise that we will laugh at you to your face."
