Inauguration Antics

Published by PETA.

Today is an exciting and historic day for our country! Everyone and his brother has flocked to the nation’s capital to catch a glimpse of our new president and first family becoming … well, exactly that. Now, at PETA, we believe that in order to be a strong nation, we need a limitless amount of compassion, great endurance, and excellent health—and the best way to get all that is to go vegetarian. Want to see all the exciting things we’re doing for the inauguration today? We’ve got some fantastic pictures to show you:
