Moving on, one of the bizarre things I noticed about the Trump administration is that things were ALWAYS worse than they first appeared to be.

My experience in Ukraine this summer? Ukrainians don’t give up/knuckle under or cower no matter what the threat. Saw this spirit growing up with many in my youth in Alberta and Saskatchewan. #Ukraine @BobRae48 https://t.co/UswaSna6Xi— 𝚂𝚎á𝚗 𝙾’𝚂𝚑𝚎𝚊 Global News (@ConsumerSOS) July 20, 2022

Latest Russian explanation for why they can't beat the Ukrainians: Because the Americans are injecting Ukrainian soldiers with secret serum that gives them special powers and turns them into monsters. Really. https://t.co/y3Oides1Md— Anne Applebaum (@anneapplebaum) July 20, 2022

In the village of Inverness in Cape Breton Island of Nova Scotia, my local friend and I visited the beach. Standing by the shore of the glorious Atlantic Ocean, he played an Irish tune with his Bagpipe and I danced Punjabi Bhangra to it. We're sending joy, hope and positivity. pic.twitter.com/TGKPeNzim8— Gurdeep Pandher of the Yukon (@GurdeepPandher) July 12, 2022
