Alrighty now. Donald Trump has crossed the line. This time he has gone too far. The Hill reported on Tuesday that an advisor to Trump said that he (Trump) told his secretary that “he thought it was ‘low class’ for the Pences to bring their pets to the Naval Observatory.”
“He was embarrassed by it. He thought it was so low class. He thinks the Pences are yokels.”
This story is based on a recent article by The Atlantic entitled “God’s Plan For Mike Pence.” The Hill goes on to note that at the time, the Pences had “two cats, a rabbit, and a snake.” Okay, well the snake might have been a bit much, but after one of the cats died, the Pences then adopted a new puppy and kitten.
Trump might be able to get away with saying he could shoot someone of Fifth Avenue and not lose any supporters, but to call anyone who adopts puppies and kittens “yokels” could definitely cost him some votes. How can ANYONE look down on people with puppies and kittens.
The Hill also noted that Trump is the FIRST president in 150 years not to have a pet at the White House. This is probably the kindest thing Trump has ever done in his life. Who would want to inflict him on some innocent dog or cat. Or perhaps Trump instinctively knows that any dog would likely turn on him and no self respecting cat would come anywhere near him. Maybe PETA should now stand for “Pets Evading Trump’s Arrogance.”
Trump likes his animals in their proper place – dead and stuffed. And he has passed on his love of animals to his sons, as we already know.
And this one. Nice kitty.
And my personal favorite
Sorry Mr. Trump, but these are the people who are “embarrassing. Your sons are the ones who are “low class.” They are the “yokels.” They like to kill beautiful animals just for sport. But you think people who adopt dogs, cats, puppies, or kittens and give them a loving home are just “trash.”
Thank you for giving us this insight into your tiny, shriveled heart. It’s even smaller than your hands. No point in mentioning your soul, because you obviously don’t have one. By the way, did you know that the Washington Humane Society is the only Congressionally chartered humane society and has been active since 1870. And it’s located only a few blocks from the White House. Just saying ……….
Thank you also for pointing out that anyone who has a pet is a “low class yokel.” There are millions of us in the country, so we appreciate learning what you think about us.
You might want to consider what Winston Churchill (a noted animal lover) said would be the ideal pet for you. Just like your tweets, Churchill has a quote for everything.
“Dogs look up to you. Cat’s look down on you. Give me a pig. He will look you in the eye and treat you as an equal.”
Yes, a pig would be the perfect pet for you.
