How To ‘Make America Kittens Again’
The internet has outdone itself once again. “Just add kittens” is a formula that works for everything. Always. The creator of this Google Chrome extension is well aware of this formula. So, if you, like the rest of the world, are sick and tired of seeing Trump’s orange face everywhere, the Chrome extension "Make America Kittens Again" might just be the solution.
The extension's name alludes to Trump’s election slogan that called to ‘make America great again’. It does you a huge favour and replaces every picture of our beloved Donald with an image of a cute kitten. Sometimes two, if you’re lucky. Well, it won’t get greater than a picture of a bunch of adorable kitties under a serious headline about what the President-elect has said or done this time, if you ask us.
After testing the extension vigorously and repeatedly (for science), it appears to work best on news sites written in English, such as The New York Times or the Daily Mail. On Belgian websites, a kitten pops up every now and then, but most of the time you’re still stuck with the Angry Cheeto, unfortunately.
So far, the extension only has 4.167 users, which is a crying shame if you ask us. Everyone could use a pic of a cute kitten from time to time. If you go and download the free addition to your browser, you'll find the info underneath the title doesn't mince words: “replaces images of Donald Trump with kittens, because seriously, f*** that guy.” And really, that’s all the incentive we needed. If only we could trade Donald Trump for kittens in the real world too.
