Following the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, liberal leaders around the world shared condolences for their iconic revolutionary leader. Perhaps the most blatant mischaracterization of the murderous Castro came from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose outrageous praise for Cuba's longest serving president.
Twitter users mocked Trudeau's error with the quickly trending #TrudeauEulogy.
Today we mourn the loss of Norman Bates, a family man who was truly defined by his devotion to his mother. #trudeaueulogies— Mike Hogan (@tsnmikehogan) November 26, 2016

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:
STU: Now, people noticed Justin Trudeau's statement and came up with some eulogies. The Trudeau eulogy thing was going around Twitter. Some of these are really good.
Ted Bundy was a controversial man. He will be remembered for his charisma and great love of women.
I guess it could be true to some.
PAT: Yeah. Yeah.
STU: Today, we mourn the loss of Norman Bates, a family man who was truly defined by his devotion to his mother.
Today, we mark the passing of a great doctor, Jeff Cannibal. His love for music was only outweighed by his love for liver.
I like this. This is from a guy who might go to the Supreme Court, by the way.
PAT: Don Willett.
STU: He's one of the guys on the 21 list.
PAT: All right.
STU: He tweeted: Freddie loved the company of children and made sure the dreams of every child on Elm Street came true.
STU: He's got to be the choice because he's so good on Twitter.
PAT: That's funny.
STU: Let's see. Mr. Stalin will be fondly remembered for increasing tourism to the otherwise unwelcoming Siberia. That's true. There weren't a lot of visitors before he got into office. And let's see: Pol Pot has given so much to the world of agriculture with his bold ideas on fertilizer.
PAT: Oh, man. Okay. So all of them aren't necessarily tasteful.
STU: No, they aren't. But honestly, neither is Trudeau's.
STU: I mean, can you imagine being a person who fled on a freaking floating car to go to Miami to see finally your people be freed and then seeing this dope in Canada coming up with a statement, making this guy look like an international hero.
STU: He's not a hero. He's a murderous dictator who crushed a country. You know, people who talk about the embargo. And you can agree or disagree with that. He could have traded with any other country. The economy was his fault. His doing.
PAT: Oh, yeah.
STU: It wasn't ours.
PAT: They blame us for it all the time.
