Just when you think things can’t get sillier in Trump’s America, they do. Who knew that a sweet story about a family’s adoption of a dog would cause such ugliness in social media? If that family is the First Daughter’s family, apparently, it is to be expected.
There is a new pet in the Kushner family household, thanks to eight-year-old Arabella, and the haters have lost their minds. Her birthday dream, according to her mother was for a dog. Meet Winter.

The dog is cute, right? She (I’m assuming it is a female) looks like a small white dog. I prefer larger doggos, but your mileage may vary. Nonetheless, an eight year old bugging her parents for a dog is not unusual. That was the same age of our son when my husband and I adopted a rescue puppy. I suppose I should be happy that our Max wasn’t a white dog, thus avoiding the racist implications from the woke.

An African-American actress posted this tweet:
Good thing it’s a white dog. Your dad hates the blacks .

Claude Taylor, who worked on the 1992 and 1996 Bill Clinton presidential campaigns and as White House volunteers director tweeted his opinion. His Twitter feed is full of anti-Trump posts and merchandise.
The dog will fit right in. #itswhiteenough

And on it went. Thankfully, I have no idea who these people are but they were included in a piece written up in Newsweek.
American actress Nancy Lee Grahn tweeted, “How darling. I see you skipped a rescue and went straight to an Aryan breeder.”
“Does it sit and sieg heil yet?” Grahn asked, referring to a victory salute at political rallies used by Nazis.
A former member of the alternative rock band Marcy Playground, Jared Kotler, attacked Ivanka Trump’s White House role and contributions to the country.
“Pro tip: when everyone hates you for being a spoon fed nothing grifter who’s full of s***, an advisor to the president who doesn’t advise, when you want to seem human and get a dog, maybe a shelter dog would show humanity,” Kotler, a television producer, tweeted. “But all white and blue eyes is on brand. F*** off.”
It’s pretty amazing stuff. Those still in the midst of Trump Derangement Syndrome attacked the president’s daughter and his granddaughter’s dog to own the president. This nonsense is par for the course these days, though. It does make one wonder what in the world will become of these folks when Trump wins re-election in 2020. Oh boy.
