There isn't a leader in the world who isn't divisive, and that even includes Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, otherwise known as the internet's dreamboat. Trudeau has a complicated record when it comes to his work on oil pipelines and with promises he made on the campaign trail to the First Nations people. But right now, compared to Donald Trump, he seems like a fantasy dream man to many Americans.

Maybe drawing comparisons isn't healthy, especially since all leaders should be held accountable for their flaws. But since Trudeau will never actually be president, it seems like a safe fantasy to indulge in, when we really need it. Sigh.
