    What is the purpose of an animal in the White House anyway? All it does is taxpayers need to foot the bill for a handler. Some goof that makes more money than hard working people with a real job

    I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t love animals.

    Didn't Trumpty-Dumpty say that "Pets were Low Class"? Beside being a Germaophobe who is afraid of what ever dander and vermin that pets may carry, could this rediculius remark that he's made be because even a Gold Fish, (who aren't necessarily the best judges of character) would still jump out of the water in it's own bowl and bite him?

    Trump had publicly stated that pets (dogs) are only for stupid poor people.

    Trump had rats, skunks, snakes, weasels, a few female dogs, a couple beavers and the badger himself.
