Quite the fashion statement! Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sported Chewbacca socks at a professional event, and Star Wars fans are freaking out.
The politician, 45, rocked the socks at the inaugural Bloomberg Global Business Forum in New York on Wednesday, September 20, but it’s not the first time that he’s repped the Star Wars franchise! On May 4, in honor of what has been dubbed as National Star Wars Day, Trudeau wore socks featuring R2-D2 and C-3PO during a meeting with the prime minister of Ireland.
While appearing as a guest on Live with Kelly and Ryan in June, Trudeau wore Star Wars socks yet again while talking Canadian security with the cohosts.
Here are the best reactions to Trudeau’s latest — and perhaps boldest — wardrobe choice:
Star Trek alum William Shatner weighed in on the apparel. “@JustinTrudeau I thought we were friends? Chewbacca socks?” the Canadian actor teased alongside a crying emoji.
