Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has a penchant for making the daughters of U.S. presidents extremely thirsty and shaking hands like a boss. But if you bully him, it sounds like he’s also ready to drop the gloves and engage in some good old-fashioned fisticuffs.
Especially if you happen to be Chandler Bing.
Matthew Perry, who played Bing on the long-running Friends series, recently told the tale of how he used to bully and beat up Trudeau when the two were schoolmates in Canada.
Perry, at the end of that clip, said he felt shame about beating up Trudeau, who was a few grades younger than Perry and his friend, and he didn’t like to think about it. Well, that’s too bad. Because Trudeau HAS been thinking about it, and he wants some revenge.
I’ve been giving it some thought, and you know what, who hasn’t wanted to punch Chandler? How about a rematch @MatthewPerry?

Albeit the tweet was posted on April Fools’ Day, but with a little imagination you can assume Trudeau is deadly serious. And don’t think that Perry didn’t immediately understand the threat.
@JustinTrudeau I think I will pass at your request for a rematch kind sir (given that you currently have an army at your disposal)

In the words of Bing, could Trudeau BE any more frightening?
