Default Trump says dog ownership in White House feels 'phony,' calls out Obama for having pet



Why have a dog when Lindsey Graham will rollover on command.


President Trump has an interesting pet peeve — dogs.

He called out pup ownership in the White House as “phony” in a bizarre rant during his pro-border wall rally in El Paso, Texas Monday night.

“You do love your dogs, don’t you?,” he asked the MAGA-hat wearing crowd. “I wouldn’t mind having one honestly, but I don’t have any time.”

Trump then painted a picture of himself strolling on the grounds of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. with man’s best friend.

“How would I look walking a dog on the White House lawn?,” he asks, before grimacing and shaking his head no.

That liberal sad sacks feel the need to misrepresent stuff like his dog comment speaks to the fact that they can't be trusted to be truthful about anything.

He was talking about himself, not making a general comment about dog ownership.

Doing something just for the positive political optics is phony, whether it is pretending to be a dog person or dressing up in camo and pretending to be a duck hunter.

Owning a dog requires a commitment of time each day. At least one hour. If you don't have the time, for the love of dogs, don't keep one.

Having a dog in the White House is, for politicians, like kissing babies. Good campaign tactics. But a lot of babies have been kissed by politicians who favor killing them in the womb.

The same goes for puppies.


President Trump doesn't have time for a dog. So he doesn't have one. At the very least, that's honest. Good for him.

I agree,

I think the Obamas and Clintons both got dogs just for political purposes, then dumped them after their reign. I'm pretty sure the Bush's had their own dogs.

Trump is a realist, he not going to pretend that he is a Dog lover. I respect that.

This is accurate, but only if you believe that spending 6 or more hours a day watching Fox News is a better use of Trump’s time than having a dog.

Explain how gathering news and analysis is an inferior use of a President's time compared to playing with a dog. Oh wait, it's Trump so criticism is always required no matter how I'll founded.

You need serious professional help. Along with sympathy for your self induced illness, you won't find it here.

Oh, come on. Are you seriously trying to defend Trump’s “Executive Time” spent watching nonsense like Fox & Friends and Hannity? And, yes, time spent playing with a dog would be more useful than watching that propaganda.

Do you have valid links that say Trump watches Fox News for anything other than entertainment?
