This Toronto newspaper brilliantly trolled Sean Spicer after he fumbled Justin Trudeau's name

As you can probably imagine, the Canadians were pretty peeved when White House press secretary Sean Spicer mistakenly thought their prime minister Justin Trudeau’s name was Joe.

Oooh – spicy! (If you will excuse the pun). They manage to rinse the press secretary without even using his name – now that’s talent.

People are loving the absolute zinger that the paper served up, making many feel somewhat patriotic.

Canada: 1. Spicer: 0.
