As Canadians celebrated Canada Day, Americans took to Twitter to apologize for the unpredictable and erratic behavior of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Canada Day is celebrated on July 1 every year and is Canada’s national holiday commemorating the Constitution Act, which unified the three separate colonies of the Province of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. Originally called Dominion Day, it was renamed in 1982 with the passage of the Canada Day act, which established the date as a federal holiday.

Americans joined our northern neighbors in their celebrations, offering apologies on behalf of the American people for Trump’s embarrassing treatment of our allies. The hashtag #CanadaDay trended throughout the day on Sunday.

“Thank you for bearing with us,” one user wrote.

This got a heartfelt response from one Canadian citizen, who said that “Canadians know that the US as a whole does not support the current political climate of your country.”

The American people are “proud to call you friends,” Canada, even if our president doesn’t see it that way.

“Please adopt me,” wrote one social media user.

Squidward peering out at Spongebob and Patrick perfectly captured the “sad American” motif many are experiencing in these unusual times.

Others burned Trump by calling him a “con-man.”

Still others asked Canadians to “forgive us” Americans as we go through a “fascist rage punk phase.”

But in the end, we have to have hope. “We will fix this.”

Americans are certainly not going to capitulate to Trump’s threats to his critics, who he said on Sunday should “take it easy.”
