‘Tone Deaf’ Trudeau Blasted for Belting Out ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Before Queen’s Funeral

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s mother, Margaret Trudeau, was known for her love of rock ‘n’ roll.

For example, while she was the First Lady of Canada, she famously partied with the Rolling Stones – much to the chagrin of her estranged husband, then Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau.

Maybe. We shouldn’t be surprised that Justin decided to do a little rock ‘n’ roll himself by providing a rendition of rock group Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” that has gone viral. Unfortunately, it didn’t take the internet by storm because it was good.

Instead, it made headlines because he did it while he was in England for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

According to the UK Daily Mail, “Trudeau belted out the 1975 hit at an impromptu session at the swanky Corinthia Hotel in London – where suites cost at least $5,000 – while Britain and the Commonwealth were in their official mourning.”

“Trudeau wore a casual maroon T-shirt and was seen standing over a piano during an ad lib singalong with other members of his formal Canadian delegation in the lobby of the central London hotel.”

“Easy come, easy go / little high, little low,” said Trudeau, 50, in the clip. Which, given the occasion, probably shouldn’t be the lyrics of “Bohemian Rhapsody” you caught the camera singing.

Do you think Trudeau is an embarrassment for Canada?

The pianist was apparently the famous Quebec musician Gregory Charles.

“After dinner on Saturday, the Prime Minister attended a small gathering with members of the Canadian delegation who have come together to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s life and ministry,” Trudeau’s spokesman said.

“Gregory Charles, a renowned Quebec musician and recipient of the Order of Canada, was playing the piano in the hotel lobby, which led to some members of the delegation, including the Prime Minister, arriving.

“Over the last 10 days, the Prime Minister has attended various activities to pay his respects to the Queen and today the entire delegation is attending the State Funeral.”

However, reactions to Trudeau’s “tribute” to the hotel lobby weren’t even mixed.

“Curious how you can qualify this as a tribute to Her Majesty’s life and ministry? Because they sang Queen music? That’s pretty badass!” wrote one commenter, according to the Daily Mail.

“A tribute? How deaf do you have to be to think this is a tribute in any way? This is embarrassing,” wrote another.

“Singing drunk is a ‘tribute’? What an embarrassment,” wrote another.

According to the Daily Mail, there was “no indication” that Trudeau had actually been drinking before heading to the piano on Saturday night – less than 48 hours before the Queen’s funeral on Monday. But remember, this is Justin Trudeau. The man doesn’t need alcohol to make a fool of himself.

On Sunday, Trudeau told reporters that “it is good to be in London for this important historic occasion, full of reflection and solemnity, but also remarkable moments of unity and even a kind of joy.”

Just curious, but has anyone bothered to update Justin on exactly how the monarchy transitions from one individual to another? As in the process of ceasing to leave an individual – in this case a loved one – from this earthly life? Something that is usually accompanied by much more sadness than joy?

I didn’t manage to see the entire funeral, but I don’t recall We Are the Champions being played to celebrate the late Queen.

Trudeau’s visit to Europe served as further proof that this is a terribly frivolous person, far more Margaret than Pierre Elliott. This wasn’t an honor, this was a party – and in the worst place and worst time, I must add.

Rock ‘n’ roll has its place, but not when the world pays its last respects to Queen Elizabeth II.
