There are running jokes about how often Canadians tend to say “sorry.” But on Canada Day, it was the other way around, with some Americans apologizing to their northern neighbor for the actions of President Donald Trump.
Thank you for bearing with us during this highly embarrassing time for our country.

Happy Birthday, Canada!
I know we suck as neighbors right now & if you build a polite privacy hedge along the border, we'll totally understand.
Thanks for being a beacon of hope and leadership in the face of American tyranny. We're proud to call you friends. 🇨🇦#CanadaDay pic.twitter.com/ToEyDp9zhR

Happy #CanadaDay, my Canadian friends!
Also, someone Canadian, please adopt me. Please. I beg. Let me out of here.

Happy Canada Day to our friends up north!!
Most Americans aren't arrogant enough to think we navigate this world alone.#CanadaDay

Sorry there's rot in your basement, guys.
We'll fix this.

Hey Canadians, Happy Canada Day!!! Yeah, we have a mentally unstable pathological liar for a president who makes really bad decisions. Most Americans don't like him and he'll be gone in a few years. In the meantime, ignore him as best you can and keep being awesome! #CanadaDay

Dear Canada: So sorry about the mess downstairs, eh? Please forgive us: we’re going through a fascist rage punk phase. We’re working on it. In the meantime, thanks for being a beacon of hope, compassion and progress for humanity. Love, Sabrina ❤️🇨🇦🍻#CanadaDay

I almost missed that today was #CanadaDay. I hope that all of our intelligent, compassionate, fun-loving friends in the North had a wonderful day. The majority of us in the U.S. still treasure our alliance and friendship. 🙏🇨🇦

Today, I honor #CanadaDay, for their humanity and compassion, not only for immigrants and refugees, but for the health and well-being of their own citizens.

You're looking pretty good for 151. If you've got a few gray hairs showing, it's because you have to live so close to us. We're sorry for that. Go buy some really expensive hair dye & send the bill to President Trump c/o The White House.
