    It’s just one of those things a President is expected to have based on historical precedent. All but three Presidents had them including Trump.

    Frankly, I wish our Presidents involved dogs more than they do. I get a kick out of the Irish President taking his dog everywhere.

    And should the dog be some certain appealing breed. Imagine the country's embarrassment when the first dog is ugly.

    Why do we treat the president as some kind of celeb rather than someone who we hired to do a job? Many people seem more concerned about this kind of shit than actual policy decisions. I would rather have a divorced introvert with no dog and a brilliant policy mind than someone that checks all the superficial boxes, but someone like that would never get elected here.

    Don't forget:
    Open border policies encouraging more crime and disease
    Giving cover to the Teachers Union and the damage done to our youth
    Over-spending with untargeted stimulus that most Americans don't need
    Rising interest rates from his negligent spending proposals

    It's also why women have a harder time rising to high office because they are judged on their clothes, hair, how aggressive or feminine they are, whether they appear to be good mothers, etc. Seems like something we should try to get past.

    But that doesn't actually help ratings.

    you know about this story & you’ve never watched Newsmax. I know about this story & I’ve never seen Newsmax. So that destroys your premise

    Has Newsmax commented on Cruz leaving the family dog home alone in the cold while he went to Cancun? I doubt it. A dog being ugly is newsworthy, but animal abuse or neglect in a nationally covered scandal is not. (I know nothing about Newsmax talking heads, but I can hear Carlson or some other icon at FoxNews saying of concern over Cruz's dog, "People are acting like some dog is a person.")

    Newsweek claims that the dog was "not left alone" because a security guard claimed that he was taking care of the dog.

    The dog, seen at a window, was alone inside the cold house. The security guard was seen outside the house in an SUV, and I'm sure he was keeping warm.

    Fact Check: Did Ted Cruz Leave His Dog Snowflake Home Alone During Trip to Cancun?

    The fact that the Bush family loved English Springer Spaniels was always a wonderful source of cognitive dissonance as that is our long time family breed having adopted many over the years from ESRA

    Lol funny op. I like the newsmax “presidential historian” “no, no, the dog definitely looks unpresidential”.

    I can just see a bunch of maga types nodding agreement while watching this.

    I remember Newsmax only as a website back in the 1990s that stayed busy digging up dirt on the Clintons. Which was actually rather fertile ground. Now it's reduced to digging up dirt on presidential canine companions.

    Posted on Twitter. It’s a fish bowl look into right wing nuttery. They are just up the conservative evolutionary ladder from you more rational righties. Just a matter of time though. Ha ha

    I think mutts are the best. Have 3 ugly rescues that look like they came from 15 different mixes.

    I remember the Bush and Obama dogs. Did Trump have a poodle?

    I think they are saying people discussing how stupid newsmax is on TH prob doesn’t weigh into ratings formula.
    I didn’t know if newsmax was a channel or a website.
