Justin Trudeau & Ivanka Trump Attend Broadway Show About Taking in Foreigners

Wednesday night's magic, in part, was brought by Canada's prime minister, the meme-orable Justin Trudeau, who addressed the audience prior to the start of the musical Come From Away.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks to the audience before the start of the Broadway musical "Come From Away", in NY, on Wednesday, March 15, 2017.

"I was reminded of this - my friend Chris Murray who was also in the fifth grade - we actually beat up Justin Trudeau", Perry said.

'I think he was excelling at a sport that we weren't, so it was pure jealousy. "I think he said I'm going to rise above this and I'm going to become the Prime Minister", he said.

"I'm not bragging about this, this is bad", Perry told late-night host Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday. "I want to say a special thank you to the permanent representatives who are here tonight".

Canadian actor Matthew Perry was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and shared his connection to Trudeau.

"I have a story about him that I'm not proud of", Perry confessed immediately. "This is bad. I was a stupid kid".

Perry and Trudeau both attended Rockcliffe Park elementary, a public school located in one of Ottawa's wealthiest neighbourhoods and frequented by the children of ambassadors and politicians.

"No, no. I feel shame".

"[The cast] worked to pull together such an extraordinary crowd to celebrate this story of friendship during extraordinarily hard times between individuals between countries", the prime minister said about "the close relationship between the United States and Canada".

While Trudeau's Liberal government has publicly denounced the Trump administration's policy on refugees and immigrants, the leader did not address it.

Perry, whose mother was press secretary to P.E.T., did suggest that the incident might have been the turning point in young Justin's life where he chose to become prime minister of Canada.
