Our newly minted Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, was recently part of a special 60-second challenge issued by Macleans.ca. In the challenge, one of the questions posed to Trudeau was, "What is your favorite Baltic nation?" Trudeau's response was a little shocking.
"That's not a thing," he said in response before quickly swiping the tablet to the next question.
The video of Trudeau in the challenge has generated a lot of attention since it was released, and you can check it out by clicking here. Of those to take notice was Antanas "Tony G" Guoga, former poker player turned Lithuanian member of the European Parliament.
"What Delphi (a Lithuanian news portal) wrote is that Justin didn't know that the Baltics existed,' Guoga said. "Everyone was quite shocked."
As a further response, Guoga was joined by other European Parliament members in a fun video to Trudeau. The group invites Trudeau to attend a Toronto Raptors basketball game, where he would be able to see Lithuanian Jonas Valanciunas play in an NBA game, among other things, but that's not why the video interested us.
Also in the video, Tony G invites Trudeau to come and play poker with him. "Or if you prefer, Justin, just come and play poker with me," Guoga said. "I'll take everything you have."
