Things went pretty well at the G7 summit in Canada until Donald Trump started tweeting while on his way to Singapore to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. From there, things got worse when White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow was interviewed Sunday on ‘State of the Union.’ Kudlow doubled down on the Trump administration’s war with Justin Trudeau, deeming Canada’s prime minister’s criticisms of Trump’s tariff proposals “a betrayal” that “really kind of stabbed us in the back.”
“He made an error,” Kudlow told Jake Tapper, adding that “He should take it back.”
Trump and Trudeau have been having a Twitter slap fight, instigated by the former reality show star.
Kudlow said that Trudeau’s remarks were a “diplomatic betrayal” because Kim must not see “American weakness” before the Tuesday summit. As you can see, Kudlow is trying to blame Trudeau in advance just in case Trump fucks up the summit.
Kudlow even referred to the Prime Minister as “Pierre Trudeau” and that is Justin Trudeau’s late father.
Kudlow pretty much slurred his words during the interview, and I’m not hating. I went out last night with my Honey and I may or may not have had a couple of martinis. But, I’m not a politician and I’d never do an interview while I’m drunkers.
I thought it was just me but Twitter users are also pretty sure that Kudlow was sloshed.

Is Larry Kudlow drunk on #CNNSOTU
Larry Kudlow, who appeared to look drunk this morning, was literally blaming the Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau for trump wanting to punish and threaten our allies, then proceeded to insult him because he refused to allow his country to be pushed around. I hate this admin.

#CNNSOTU Kudlow seems drunk… why is he slurring and having difficulty making a coherent sentence?

Admittedly, I don’t know a lot about Kudlow so I did a Google search to see if he has a past problem with alcohol or substances and apparently, he’s a rehabilitated addict with 23-years of sobriety. In all sincerity, I hope he addresses this issue now. Relapses are no joke.
