A New York Agency Is Streaming Puppies On Facebook Live Instead Of The Inauguration

WHAT: A Facebook Live stream of puppies that occurs at the same time as the inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States.

WHO: Critical Mass

WHY WE CARE: If you want to bear witness to the beginning of this deeply uncertain period of American history, well, we can't stop you. But if you are trying to keep your blood pressure down and wait to give in to that despair for a few more moments, puppies are a good choice for counter-programming. Who knows? Maybe there'll be a hilarious mix-up and one of them will accidentally be inaugurated and we'll get to live four years under the authority of President Dog! We'll take our hope wherever we can find it in these troubling times, and right now, that means puppies.
