Prime Minister Justin Trudeau loves wearing fun socks and he may have just worn his funkiest yet.
The PM was at the inaugural Bloomberg Global Business Forum in New York on Wednesday where he was spotted wearing a pair of Chewbacca socks, sending “Star Wars” fans swooning.
But it wasn’t just random “Star Wars” fans who noticed. Fellow Canadian, and “Star Trek” star William Shatner saw Trudeau’s socks and like any good Trekker felt betrayed.
It’s no surprise that Trudeau is a “Star Wars” fan. He’s made his love for the series known in the past, including last year when he took guests from The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario to aspecial screening of “Rogue One”. In 2015 he held a similar special screening of “The Force Awakens”.
And Trudeau’s “Star Wars” fandom goes even further back. In 2015 a video surfaced of an 11-year-old Justin reviewing “Return of the Jedi”.
