Bored and Irrelevant, Julian Assange Plays Kitty Cat Dress-Up

After getting his internet privileges taken away by the Ecuadorian government in October, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is evidently bored. Currently in exile from the United States and facing rape charges in Europe, without internet, Assange has found a better way to pass the time: playing dress-up with his kitty cat.

The cat in question is a sweet fellow named Embassy Cat, who Assange was gifted in May. Either Assange or someone on the Wikileaks teams has created quite the character for the sweet kitten.


Despite his exile status, Assange managed to stay in the public eye throughout the election, dumping thousands of DNC emails on Wikileaks. On Election Day, Assange posted a statement claiming he hadn’t tried to influence the election against Hillary Clinton. “I spoke at the launch of the campaign for Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate, because her platform addresses the need to protect them,” he wrote. “But WikiLeaks publications are not an attempt to get Jill Stein elected...”

Since then, it appears the Wikileaks founder has started to occupy himself by trying out new hobbies. Perhaps because his brain is no longer being affected by those ‘harmful’ wi-fi waves, Assange explored the analog side of himself by indulging his inner child through make-believe.
