White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has the ever-challenging job of answering for and announcing every controversial step the president and his administration take. With President Trump in the Oval Office, Spicer's gig can't be easy — and it seems like it might be getting to him. On Tuesday, Spicer appeared to misspeak during his daily press briefing to the media by calling Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau the misnomer of "Joe." Needless to say, you don't have to be Canadian to appreciate the Joe Trudeau jokes that resulted from Spicer's error.
Spicer brought up the Canadian prime minister when discussing the president's day-to-day schedule, a common ritual of the press secretary's press briefings. On Monday, Trump, First Daughter Ivanka Trump, and several entrepreneurs met with Trudeau at the White House. According to Spicer, the meeting was with "Prime Minister Joe Trudeau of Canada" and the point of the meeting was to focus "on our shared commitment to close cooperation in addressing both the challenges facing our two countries and the problems throughout the world."
Clearly, it was the first quote that grabbed more of the public's attention, as the name "Joe Trudeau" seemed to stick for the personable and notably feminist Canadian leader.

You're not a real fan until you've listened to Joe Bieber's most recent album: Passion.
Where's the proof, Justin?
Poor, Joe Trudeau. Hang in there, bud.
Please excuse him, Canada.

Unfortunately for Spicer, Tuesday was Valentine's Day and not April Fool's Day.
Yes, America will accept that rose.
Have I mentioned that Spicer's error happened on Valentine's Day?

Not everyone gets to call him Joe.
Guys, these are all just alternative facts.
Yes, he's definitely Canadian.
There you have it, folks.
Jokes aside, the president's meeting with Trudeau had a good takeaway for women on both sides of the border. Trump and Trudeau announced the creation of the Canada-United States Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders, which will reportedly promote the growth of women-owned businesses. The two leaders released a joint statement on Monday ... but we're still awaiting comment from Joe Trudeau.
