Despondent Democrats Bring ‘Therapy Dogs’ to Capitol Hill After Trump Victory

Democratic staffers were so upset over the popular election of President Elect Donald Trump that “therapy dogs” were brought into the U.S. Capitol to soothe their hurt feelings.

Two golden doodles, two American Eskimo dogs, and a beagle mix were walked around the Cannon Office Building where many members of the House of Representatives have offices, according to NBC News.

“Organizers say it was a great way for workers to blow off steam especially for those whose bosses may have lost re-election bids,” NBC noted.

Several groups organized the visit by the animals including the Human Animal Bond Research Initiative, Pet Partners, the Pet Leadership Council and the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.

In a press release the groups said, “the help of a non-judgmental, furry, four-legged best friend that enjoys bipartisan support.”

A similar effort was mounted at the University of Massachusetts Boston, the Springfield News-Sun reported.
