Tired of seeing Donald Trump everywhere? It's going to be a long four years. But while hope may seem in short supply, it sometimes pops up in unexpected places, like the Google Chrome Web Store. A new Google Chrome extension, aptly named Make America Kittens Again, replaces images of Trump with images of kittens in any given article. It's free, and I recommend installing it before reading the articles linked to below.

Here's a kitten-ized photo from an article titled Fact-checking 2016: Trump Dominates Annual Review of Political Falsehoods.

Make America Kittens Again gives a much-improved cover photo to the Wall Street Journal Article Why a Russian Hacking Inquiry Is in Donald Trump's Best Interests.

Perhaps the app's smartest move was keeping all image captions and mouseover text intact, making for some exquisite pairings of text and imagery.

The app is also spot-on in its facial recognition, leaving photos of non-Trump humans untouched while pleasantly censoring any and all Trump photos with a much more aesthetically pleasing kitten.

With the recent news that Trump officially won the Electoral College vote, Make America Kittens Again is a must-have for self-preservation. You can download it in the Google Chrome Store. Together, we truly can make America kittens again.
