On Wednesday, at the height of Ivanka vs. Nordstrom, Warren vs. McConnell, and Donald vs. his own tweet kerfuffles, people seemed like they wanted a momentary break from politics.

So, the #SayAnythingNonPolitical hashtag was born. As you've probably deduced, the hashtag challenges folks to talk about literally anything, as long as it's not political.

#SayAnythingNonPolitical I'm 51 years old, but tell people I'm 70. I USUALLY get you look great for your age!!

Things were cute at first — and much, much needed. There were lots of animal pictures shared.

While others — Republicans, Democrats, Trump supporters or not — could not not tweet anything politically charged. In fact, people are being unapologetically blatant about it.
