Liberal comedienne Chelsea Handler took to social media on Wednesday to apologize to the world for the president.

“In every country on the 4th of July. Regret of our president. He doesn’t need to match all of our positions – and we hope that you know that the majority of us not ashamed. We will rally together and come back to the world one step at a time,” Handler wrote.
