“People...rather Liberal diehards, are saying the video of @JustinTrudeau drunkenly singing Bohemian Rhapsody was from a year ago.....I think not. Truth hurts. He showed ZERO decorum. Zero Statesmanlike conduct. #TrudeauMustGo”, tweeted one user. "Trudeau was in the hotel lobby and they asked if anyone could pay tribute to the Queen and Trudeau jumped up and yelled "hold my beer, I've got this" It was then that they said, awww Justin, wrong Queen," said another.
