Once again Leo Varadkar has left himself open to the ire of the angry Twitter mob by acting a small bit human as he tried to get on Justin Trudeau's good side in their meeting this morning by jumping aboard the novelty sock train.
Trudeau famously donned a pair of Star Wars socks in his meeting with Enda Kenny earlier this year so it's up to you whether you view Varadkar's Mounties and Maple Leaf offering a nice touch or a meek 'how do you do, fellow kids?' attempt.

While many in Ireland like to swoon over the Canadian Prime Minister, his son Hadrien has somewhat stolen the spotlight this morning.

No one's looking at them. Hadrien's stealing the show....and he knows it.

Anyhow I'm sure to there's more to life as Candian Prime Minister other than wearing novelty socks and being really really, ridiculously good looking. Hopefully Trudeau and Varadkar get down to some serious discussion around governance and all that one the photo-op dust has settled.
