TRUMP'S "DOG" DILEMMA!

It began with Yellow Dog Democrats when enraged Alabama constituents said they would vote for a yellow dog, if it ran on the Democratic ticket.

Now we have Red Dog Democrats, who will “Take no sh*t and win Red States.”

Allegedly, these are the last dogs that were allowed in the White House:


First, the Washington Post printed this article:
Trump, the first president in a century with no dog, explains why: ‘I don’t have any time.'

When Barbra Streisand sat down with a reporter in November to promote her new album, the singer couldn’t help going off-topic and ruminating on a question that has plagued many Americans.

“How does the president not have a dog?” she asked the Los Angeles Times. “He’s the first president in 120 years that doesn’t have a dog in the White House.”

At last, we have an answer straight from President Trump himself... “I wouldn’t mind having one, honestly, but I don’t have any time. How would I look walking a dog on the White House lawn?” https://beta.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/02/12/trump-first-president-century-with-no-dog-explains-why-i-dont-have-any-time/


Then, a few days later - without offering a retraction - the Washington Post printed this article!

Donald Trump gets a dog

If it really is so necessary, he suggests, then get a used dog, not a puppy. So it’s trained and it won’t make a mess, at least.

He is at first aware of it only as something persistently underfoot, like a Roomba with ideas of its own. Then he is aware of it as something that has done a deal on the carpet — in the golf room, the new golf room! Of all the places!

Can we send it to a farm... where they’ll take care of it? That might be better than to have this wagging beast that will sometimes ruin a pair of Ivanka Trump heels, almost as if it gnawed on them on principle. No, the farm, he thinks, might be best. It would be happier on the farm.

It is Jared who takes it on himself to explain about farms... So all the farms where the dogs were taken care of were just nowhere [in the USA].

That week, Jared says he has found a farm after all.

I knew there was a farm, Trump says. This is why I always doubt intelligence so much.

Unnamed sources in US intelligence claim Trump considered sending the dog to his friend, Kim Jong Un, in North Korea; but a lack of dog-food in the impoverished nation swayed his decision.

Report: Kim Jong Un fed uncle alive to 120 starved dogs

NBC News picks up Hong Kong-based paper Wen Wei Po's account of how Kim Jong Un did away with his uncle, Jang Song Thaek...

Its report claims Jang and his five closest aides were set upon by a pack of hunting dogs that hadn't eaten in days as Kim and his brother, flanked by 300 officials, watched...

Another unnamed US intelligence official claimed that Trump considered sending his dog to Asia, where dog-farms are prevalent; but very few nations, especially China, were willing to grant political asylum to the dog. An anonymous Chinese official suggested that exporting a dog to China would be expensive, due to the trade-war Trump had declared with the nation:

Roughly 10–20 million dogs are killed for consumption in China each year, making the country the world's largest consumer of dog meat...

Around five million dogs are slaughtered in Vietnam every year, making the country the second biggest consumer of dog meat in the world after China...

According to the Korean Animal Rights Advocates (KARA), approximately 780,000 to 1 million dogs are consumed per year in South Korea... In recent years dog meat consumption has declined as more people have been adopting dogs as pets. Dog restaurants are also closing down, with reports saying the country's 1,500 dog meat restaurants have almost halved in recent years. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_meat


Another media source disputes the Washington Post, claiming that dogs are taking control of the White House!

Trump Dismisses Concerns Over White House Chaos After Pack Of Feral Dogs Takes Over 4th West Wing Room

WASHINGTON—Insisting that his administration was nothing less than “a well-oiled machine,” President Donald Trump dismissed continued concerns over chaos in the White House Friday after a pack of feral dogs claimed a fourth West Wing room as their territory. “Honestly, this was not a room that we needed anymore—there are many other rooms to meet in, if we want to meet for some reason, so this one has gone over to the dogs, or we let it be taken by dogs, which, you know, that’s okay,” said Trump, fresh blood seeping through the bandages on his hands and face as he reiterated that staff had the situation completely under control and would continue to throw raw meat into the dogs’ rooms each day in order to ensure the pack did not range farther into the executive facilities in search of food. “We are absolutely focused on making America great again, because whether these dogs are in 3 rooms, or even maybe they get up to 6 rooms, or even more rooms, maybe, that doesn’t matter. I’m more concerned about the Democrats, or the obstructionist Democrats, than I am about 40 to 60 dogs roaming the White House. https://politics.theonion.com/trump-dismisses-concerns-over-white-house-chaos-after-p-1834482436

3. Barron could take care of the dog.

I think a dog would be good for the kid and from what I understand he really wants one.

Besides, I am sure they have plenty of help as backup. It's not like Trump himself would ever have to have anything to do with it, which would be a good thing because I can't imagine how he would treat the poor thing.

He would hate it instantly because it would get more attention from people than he would.

4. I do not wish to see "TRUMP" and DOG in the same sentence.

The first is the worst of humanity; the second brings out the best.
