Accuracy in Media

Apparently, having a pet in the White House is a must-have for the liberal media. CNN wrote a piece about the Trump family not owning a pet nor bringing one into the White House.

This makes President Trump one of the few presidents to not have a pet while serving in office:

He campaigned and won vowing to shake up Washington. Now, President Donald Trump is again breaking with tradition on a more personal matter: keeping a pet at the White House.

The illustrious tradition of keeping pets in the White House dates back to Thomas Jefferson, who kept a mockingbird and a couple of bear cubs during his presidency. Throughout the years, presidential pets became celebrities of sorts.
“It softens their image, it broadens their appeal,” Ed Lengel, chief historian at the White House Historical Association, told CNN. “They help create an atmosphere of the White House as a family, a lived-in place and not just a stiff museum, but a place where a family lives and plays and enjoys each other’s company.”
For an image-conscious President, Trump seems to be in little rush to add a furry friend to the White House brood, making his the only first family in modern presidential history without a pet.

    My dogs keep me hopping up and down from morning till night, catering to their needs! That cuts productivity immensely on a daily basis! Though I love pets, and wouldn’t be without them for both companionship and security purposes, our president and first lady lead extraordinarily hectic lives that are truly dedicated to the welfare of the American people, and thus DON’T HAVE TIME TO CATER TO PETS! THE ASININE MSM SHOULD THEREFORE SHUT THE HELL UP!

    I can muster no respect for anyone (like Bill Clinton) who gets a dog for a prop.

    Wow, you’re actually being completely serious in that post aren’t you? Hold onto your hat cause I’m gonna let you in on a secret that’s gonna rock your world; the president is not the person taking care of the presidential pet! Shocking I know, but it’s absolutely true.
    Your assumption that he shouldn’t get a pet because the responsibility caring for it will be at odds with his presidental responsibilities otherwise has me at a loss for words.
    That said, the above article is outright deceitful; Trump has been president for less than a year. Correct me if wrong but many presidents didnt have a pet/dog during their first year in office. Maybe Trump can get a goldfish, which by virtue of having gold in its name is the classiest fish…
