Move over Justin Trudeau. There’s a new hunky liberal politician in the stratosphere and his name is Jacob Frey, the 38-year-old mayor of Minneapolis who everyone’s been talking about after he owned Donald Trump on Twitter this morning.

It all started when Frey’s office requested Trump pay $500,000 ahead of a MAGA rally scheduled for this Thursday in Minneapolis. The fee is to cover the costs of stuff like cops, traffic police, crowd control, and all that other boring stuff that’s needed anytime a politician, especially the President of the United States, comes to town on a reelection effort.

In response, Trump’s reelection campaign manager Brad Parscale called the $500,000 tab “an outrageous abuse of power by a liberal mayor trying to deny the rights of his own city’s residents just because he hates the President!”

Trump himself took to Twitter to call Frey a “lightweight mayor” who only wants to hurt MAGA supporters. To which Frey responded: “Yawn… Welcome to Minneapolis where we pay our bills, we govern with integrity, and we love all of our neighbors.”

When Trump responded by calling Frey a radical leftist whose actions were “probably illegal,” Frey replied: “Someone tell the President of the United States that he can afford to help pay for the extra time our officers will be putting in while he’s in town.”

Frey’s tweets quickly went viral, not only for their epic #clapbackery, but because, as one person on Twitter noted, “Mayor Jacob Frey is HOT.”

But don’t just take our word for it. Check out these pictures from his Instagram page…

Oh, and here’s a video of him from a few years ago singing the holiday classic “Winter Wonderland.” (Great angle!)

Now, we hate to disappoint, but Frey is not LGBTQ. (Whomp, whomp.) He’s married to a lobbyist named Sarah Clarke. But he is a huge LGBTQ ally.

Before he was elected mayor, Frey was endorsed by the Stonewall DFL in his successful race for the Minneapolis City Council.

As mayor, he oversaw the revitalization of several rainbow crosswalks in the city.

He also marched in this year’s Twin Cities Pride parade, posting pictures and videos of the celebration to his social media pages.

And just last month, he helped the city update its non-discrimination ordinance protecting LGBTQ people for the first time since 1975.

On top of all that, he has a deep appreciation for drag culture.

Ladies and gentlemen, we do believe a star has been born.

Now, how about some more pics?
