Trump, the first president in a century with no dog, explains why: ‘I don’t have any time.

    Dogs can sense the evil in people. If he had a dog it would probably attack him.

    My dog is really smart…he can turn H2O into K9P.

  8. So rude of Biden not to recognise Putin’s Pet in the Whitehouse

  9. His beautiful chocolate cake.

  10. They say dogs are a good judge of character, given this little factoid I doubt Trump could find a dog that would not bite him.

  11. having a dog you must be consequent and reliable in your attitude

    He doesn’t have a dog because he doesn’t want anyone smarter than him in the white house

    • 😂 You win the Internet today!

    • If Joe Biden wins the presidency they’re going to have to place random dolls that look about 8 or 9 throughout the White House so he can come up behind them, squeeze their shoulders delicately and whisper into their ear.

  13. Ahhhhh! I get it.
    I see where you came up with these ideas and what you were
    thinking about while listening to the speech. 🚫🐕💨💨💨💨

    Never trust anyone that doesn’t like dogs.

  15. Why would he need pets around when he can treat his staff like pets? I hear Mike Pence and Lindsey Graham are “good boys”. Especially since both are neutered.

    No dog would be seen with that shmuck.
