Isnt his dog a rescue? I'd much rather the president have a dog that needs an owner than something cute and expensive

Both his dogs and cat are rescues. First time ever a president had rescues in the White House and about time if you ask me.

Edit: Major is the rescue. Champ was from a breeder.

Not to split hairs, but Major and Winston (the cat)are rescues, but Champ is not. Totally agree that it’s about time! I would love it if they added a rescue hedgehog to the mix, too.

Edit: Edited because I got the names wrong

There are 2 books about Marlon Bundo actually. Mike Pence released one, but the day before John Oliver released the other in which Marlon Bundo was indeed gay and then John donated all the proceeds to the Trevor Project. This was in response to Pence supporting Focus On The Family, which is an anti-LGBT organisation that endorses conversion therapy.

Jefferson's mockingbird Dick

Lincoln's dog Fido), where the name was popularized (poor pupper was assassinated)

There are tons of other ones but those stand out. Interestingly Trump was our first president to have no pets, even William Harrison had a cow for a pet in the White House for that month before he died.

I mean Roosevelt wasn't considered a hero for killing a bear but I get what you're point is. And while I agree that yeah, he is kinda the reason the cub needed rescue, it's still technically a rescue correct?

Edit: spelling

Edit 2: okay so people keep responding to this comment and I feel the need to point out that myself and some other redditors looked it up and have discovered that Roosevelt didn't shoot the cubs mother. One of the hunting guides tied a bear cub to a tree for him to shoot and he refused because it was unsportsmanlike and any animal he hunted must have a sporting chance.

Even if it were a "junkyard dog", what's wrong with that? Some of the smartest dogs I've met were mutts, and some of the most grossly deformed were purebred.

What exactly is their point, that the president has a dog literally anyone could have? Is their problem that it's not an expensive fancy hound, but a rescue?

They don't have a problem with the dog. They have a problem with Biden not being Trump, those losers. What a disgusting display of complete lack of decency. Newsmax suck, but this is just a new low.

It's called splitting I believe. Iirc, it's a form of cognitive dissonance allowing a person to attribute all negative aspects of something to a "categorically bad" thing, and do the same in reverse for positive. It's incredibly frustrating to deal with.

I think it’s way easier to hate someone that way. It’s nice having a bad guy, a public enemy #1. If they’re nothing but negative, you don’t have to view yourselves as anything but a force for good. That’s why American politics is such a shitshow, because it’s a two party system, which makes it easy to have an us vs them mentality.

As a matter of fact, because of this phenemonen I need to clarify every time I mention his name that I know trump is a bad person, and was a bad president. However using basic common sense, I highly doubt that he never once made a couple good presidential decisions, or pass a beneficial executive order. There was also a video floating around about examples of the media just straight up spreading disinformation.

Did you notice that in the video, they go on about "good dogs" in the Whitehouse. And they name solely Republican dogs. 🤦‍♂️

They can't even concede that all dogs are good dogs.

My cat is definitely a greedy capitalist milking socialist benefits while railing against the evils of socialism.

Wants all the food, but refuses to share it. Just constantly cries for handouts and never contributes shit but acts like it’s his god given right.

I don't even understand what might be wrong with its appearance. Looks like a beautiful dog to me.

This insult just doesn't make sense to me, no matter the varying implications of it. The dog's class, the possibility that they're insinuating it looks dirty and is therefore mistreated, that its breed or coat doesn't look good enough for them.

I really just can't even play devil's advocate on this one because it just doesn't make sense.

Pretty low to go after a dog. There was no mention of Major, the Biden's other dog who is the first shelter rescue to ever live in the White House. They adopted him to be a companion for the aging Champ.

I switched over to Fox a few days after the capitol riot and it was literally just Tucker making fun of a CNN reporter for saying a word wrong.

Out of all the things going on, that’s what they decided to report.

Tucker's stare that he puts on when someone he disagrees with is talking is hilarious to watch once pointed out.

I typed 'tucker carlson' into youtube and clicked the first video in the list, skipped forward a bit to a random time in the video and, sure enough - there it is: the signature tucker carlson 'the lights are on but nobodies home' stare

I used to switch to Fox when he was on when i had buddies over and say 'tuckers on right now, much do you wanna bet hes doin the stare?' and easily 80% of the time, i'd switch the channel and he'd have that stupid fucking stare on

Newsmax asked me in an interview to literally manipulate old white conservatives into buying their supplementary pills and subscribe to their shitty magazine. When I looked them up (had no prior knowledge of who they were) it was this manipulative company that clearly wanted to target the elderly in my area because they have money and are easy to target using cold calls. They have their callers start by having a conversation with them to gain their trust, then they push to sell the product. Fuck Newsmax. Please avoid them.

If you can find the clip someplace where they won't get paid for your view, watch it. It's some of the strangest shit I think I've ever seen. It's not just a brief comment, as HPost says. It's an entire segment, with "expert" guests (they call themselves "historians"), shitting on that handsome pup.

Imagine sitting in your home watching this shit and nodding along...

~25% of Americans are intellectual dumpster fires that should make the rest of us concerned for the future of the human race.
