Americans Offered ‘Emotional Support Canadians’ To Help Cope With The Stressful Election

Americans Offered Emotional Support Canadians For Presidential Election


Everyone is familiar with emotional support dogs, which, if I am being frank, is basically just every dog because that’s what they do. Then there are the lesser known emotional support animals like squirrels, mini horses, umm, clowns, and, uh, beer.

Apparently a lot of Americans utilized that last one during Tuesday night’s election coverage.

Election night was obviously a rough one for many Americans as states went one way then another throughout the coverage. There is a lot at stake and the stress level of the country is as high as many have seen in their lifetimes.

So, in an effort to help Americans through this trying time, one kind Canadian (redundant, I know) offered to provide Americans with “Emotional Support Canadians” to smooth nerves as we eagerly await the final results of the election between Presidential candidates Joe Biden and Donald Trump, as well as numerous House and Senate seats.

“Dear America: Emotional Support Canadians are on standby,” wrote Twitter user @Darth_Pingu. “If you have not yet received your Emotional Support Canadian, one will be assigned to you shortly.”

His message was very well received by his neighbors to the south with, as of this writing, over 127,000 likes and more than 18,000 retweets.

Many other Canadians also echoed his desire to help out.

As the evening wore on, numerous Americans decided that they would take the offer of an “Emotional Support Canadian.” Some even made specific requests.

And on it went throughout the night and into the morning, where the Emotional Support Aussies took over.

God Bless Canada.
