Emergency Cute has long been one of the internet's most trustworthy sources of anxiety-relieving puppy pictures, but this week they're really stepping up their game. During one of America's most anxiety-inducing weeks (looking at you, Donald Trump) the usually apolitical account decided all bets were off and weighed in with some inspiring political commentary on Twitter during our country's time of need.
On the day of Donald Trump's inauguration, Emergency Pets sent out this not-so-subtle message to its nearly 600,000 followers. The tweet garnered over 1,000 retweets and an outpouring of praise from the internet:

Followers tweeted their appreciation in response to the messages of resistance from the bold pup.
I need you to tweet all day today and the rest of this weekend.— Wendy (@rikayla) January 20, 2017
But Emergency Cute didn't stop there, continuing to tweet courageous paw-litical messages throughout the weekend. It's just easier to be optimistic about the state of democracy when staring into the eyes of a civic-minded puppy, right?

To say that there must be no criticism of the President is not only unpatriotic & servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public pic.twitter.com/msyS1Z8EjP— Real Emergency Puppy (@EmergencyPuppy) January 25, 2017
We'll leave you with this pup, who we presume is equally concerned with protecting our Constitution and, say, belly rubs.

And trollers beware, Emergency Cute is not tolerating any of your nonsense. The account has been responding to nay-sayers with this same image of a pup with its tongue out. So there, haters.
