Less than 24 hours after the polls closed, Canada's incoming prime minister had already inspired the hashtag #DaddyTrudeau.
According to Bloomberg's Kim Fox, the hashtag came from Liberal leader Justin Trudeau's victory speech Monday night, in which he told his children, "And I can tell you now, there will be some tough times for you as children of a prime minister, but daddy will be there for you.”
Typing in the prime-minister-elect's full name into a Twitter search yields the options "Justin Trudeau's liberals," immediately followed by "Justin Trudeau daddy."
