The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Jan. 19
Happy Thursday! It's truly crazy to think that in just one day, Donald Trump will be inaugurated and President Obama will be leaving office. For months, this day has seemed so far away, but now, unfortunately, it's finally here.
Perhaps you're preparing to head down to D.C. for the Inauguration, the Women's March, or another event, or maybe you're gearing up for a weekend away from the TV and headlines containing the words "Trump". Whatever your plan is, take comfort in knowing that today, at least, wasn't nearly as crazy as the days to come. Here's what happened:
The Women's March + Getting Ready
If you're one of the many people planning on attending either the Women's March on Washington or one of its sister marches across the world this weekend, you're probably psyched, and for good reason. But before you head on over, make sure you know what to bring to the Women's March (and don't forget the feminist signs!) as well as what items to leave at home.
Music Rec: Every feminist march needs a feminist rallying cry, and Fiona Apple's "Tiny Hands" (Trump, obviously, inspired the title) is this year's pick. Let its catchy chant provide a soundtrack to your march. Listen here.
OITNB's Diane Guerrero + Standing Strong
She's best known for her scene-stealing roles on Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin, but Guerrero is also an immigration reform activist and a proud feminist. Here, she tells Bustle why she's joining the Women's March and is standing strong despite the Trump presidency looming large.
Pro Tip: In Portland on Inauguration Day? Stop by Broadway Books, which is giving out free copies on Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's classic We Should All Be Feminists. How cool is that?
Chrissy Teigen + Stretch Marks
Teigen is known for being super honest and open on social media, and a Wednesday night tweet just proved that even more. The photo of Teigen's stretch marks — and the funny comment that followed — is seriously awesome, and the model's realness and security in herself is so inspiring.
#TBT: '90s kids, get pumped: the Power Rangers trailer is here, and it looks great. The beloved franchise is in good hands.
Mike Pence + Queer Dance Party
Yes, you read that right. On Wednesday night, a group of LGBT activists threw a dance party outside Pence's D.C. home, blasting Beyonce and waving rainbow flags in order to send a strong message to the next vice president, who's known for anti-LGBT policies and beliefs. The photos are amazing.

Today's WTF Moment: Bachelor fans can now support Corinne's nanny by donating to a GoFundMe page. Yes, really.
What to Watch: One of the best, funniest new shows of the season has its season finale tonight, and you won't want to miss it. Tune in to NBC at 8 p.m. to say goodbye to The Good Place — hopefully just for now.
