All eyes were on Donald Trump and the G7 summit over the weekend. All eyes, except for the ones that were mercilessly staring at Justin Trudeau’s wayward left eyebrow.
So much for the possibility of a trade war being the main focus.
Some people are speculating that the Canadian Prime Minister was wearing falsies. Because nothing says “take me seriously” like a set of fake eyebrows.
