Odd Future

President Obama's summit
with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto

in Ottawa

is going way better
than Donald Trump's Scottish adventure

despite his having zero hotels
or golf courses
licensed with his name.

One such example
occurred when the Canadian Parliament
today broke into chants

of "Four more years"

after Obama completed the first speech
given by a United States leader in Canada
since 1995.

Donald Trump may note
that Canada has its own leaders

that everyone there was aware
that Obama cannot
legally run for President again

and yet were expressing the hope

that he were able
to do so.

So it will take
some special creativity

to make this event
into a video
from 2025

after two successful Trump terms
come to a close.
