Left-wing Canadian Prime Minister quickly earned himself the mockery of the Internet after praising Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

In a glowing statement issued after the 90-year-old tyrant passed away Friday night, Trudeau hyped Castro’s “dedication and love for the Cuban people.” (Trudeau was presumably referring to the Cuban people lucky enough not to be persecuted by the oppressive Castro regime.)

Poking fun at Trudeau’s weak response, Twitter users imagined how he might respond to the passing of other dictators and mass murders (both real and fictitious), using the hashtag #TrudeauEulogies to collectively laugh at the prime minister.
