Russian pranksters posing as Greta Thunberg duped PM Justin Trudeau into a 10-minute call in January, in the wake of the Iranian military shooting down a Ukrainian airlines flight, which killed dozens of Canadians. The pranksters also suggested Donald Trump wanted a war. 1/2
Trudeau gave diplomatic answers, and ended the call after the fake Thunberg asked for a meeting w/South Park characters Terrance and Phillip. PMO tells iPolitics there are strict protocols for who speaks Trudeau, but given the crash, many leaders had been calling him. #cdnpoli
This is not the first time something like this has happened. The pranksters, known as Vovan and Lexus, have also duped other world leaders, like French President Emmanuel Macron, US Vice-President elect Kamala Harris and Prince Harry. @NEWS1130 @CityNewsVAN
