Ottawa ON — In the first virtual meeting between the two countries, technical difficulties slowed down meaningful discussion just like it has for many during the pandemic. Justin Trudeau had what appeared to be a donkey filter on for the entire meeting despite constant attempts at turning it off. “ Try going into settings,” Biden told him at one point which many pundits are calling a great idea even though it didn’t seem to work. “We may just have to continue as is and you’ll have to just pretend that you aren’t talking to a donkey,” Trudeau told the President. After an hour and a half they agreed to just go on with the meeting. Biden, ever a dad joke connoisseur, asked that he start every sentence with “I don’t mean to be an ass but…” Biden said with a chuckle. They touched on the soft issues affecting both countries before Biden ended the meeting telling Trudeau it was fun swapping manly stories and that in the mornin, he’s makin waffles.
