AOC finds her perfect puppy – which other politicians have found theirs?

The congresswoman says her French bulldog will come with her to the office and to town halls, making them an ideal pair

On Tuesday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez brought joy to the world in the form of a video announcing a new addition to her family: a dog.


The dog appears to be a French bulldog, an intelligent dog known for its stubborn streak. That’s perhaps an obvious fit for the freshman congresswoman, who ousted a 10-term incumbent without any lobbyist cash (although it is worth noting that concerns have been raised around this breed, as some have trouble breathing).

As legend has it, a dog says a lot about its owner. That saying surely holds even more relevance when it comes to politicians. Second only to babies, pets are a choice weapon for politicians who want to soften their image. Their canine best friend holds a special role: to project the image that the politician wants the public to have of them.

Here is our take on what the following dogs say about their political owners.

1. STUDY: To Save The World, Dump Your Pets - Blamed for 'global warming'

 

According to a study out Monday on global climate change, your dog (or your cat) is probably killing the environment, and if you want to stem the tide of global warming, it’s time to say “good-bye” to Fido and Fluffy.

The study, which appears in the online journal, PLOS, claims the human compulsion to seek out animal companionship is one of the primary factors affecting our climate, particularly in the United States, where there are 163 million companion animals — roughly one pet for every two Americans — the highest number of any country in the world.

2. I'll dump my computer and other electronic devices first.

I understand the concept of costs and benefits.

4. Samson has something to say about that study...



We would be better off dumping republicans. They're way worse for the environment than pets are.
