Sean Spicer, a man who rams his foot into his mouth for a living, has made another glorious mistake – this time at the expense of the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.
The White House Press Secretary is known for a lot of things – doing his job competently is not one of them.
On his very first day on the job he got caught out for one of the most ambitious lies in Presidential history when he tried to tell us that Trump’s Inauguration turnout was the highest ever.
It was not.
Then he insisted on calling our Aussie Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, Malcolm Trumbull.
Not once, not twice…but over and over again.
Not content with getting the name of one close allied leader’s name incorrect, Spicer has set his sights on Canadian PM/dreamboat, Justin Trudeau.
Or…’Joe Trudeau’ as Spicer calls him.
Oh boy. Spicer says Trump had a productive meeting with Canadian PM "Joe" Trudeau. pic.twitter.com/0SHj0yY1iY

At this point, we still don’t know if Spicer is just wildly incompetent or it’s a genius form of diplomacy designed to undermine foreign powers.
Kind of like the international leader version of deliberately getting your ex’s new partner’s name wrong just to screw with them.
I’d like to think it was the latter, but I think we all know what the answer is.
