World leaders can get away with a lot these days, even showing up for work in a Halloween costume.
Yesterday, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau arrived at The House of Commons dressed up as superman’s alter-ego Clark Kent, sporting some thick-rimmed glasses, slicked back hair, a sober suit and a white shirt… with a Superman logo t-shirt hidden underneath it.

Trudeau has a large fanbase across the world thanks to his nice-guy rep, eloquence, some great PR and well, just not being Donald Trump. The Twitterverse went wild upon seeing him getting into the seasonal spirit.
This guy is so cool. https://t.co/4s6otacsi3

Trudeau, along with having a keen eye for a social media opportunity, clearly has his finger on the cultural pulse: in a meeting with former Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny in May, he sported a pair of novelty Star Wars socks that went down a treat with fanboys across the world (it was international Star Wars day, 4th of May).
