Of all his potential shortcomings, real or imaginary, International Business Times’ Sherley Boursiquot took exception that President Donald Trump doesn’t own a dog.
…other than perceived pit bull Steve Bannon, of course.
More from IBT:
Donald Trump could become the first U.S. president in decades who doesn’t have a pet dog – or any pets for that matter – in the White House. Other presidents in the past have had a least one dog, while many had several.
The last U.S. president who did not own a dog in office was William McKinley, but he did own several other animals, including roosters and a Mexican parrot named “Washington Post,” according to the Presidential Pet Museum.
Boursiquot said “it remains unclear if Trump dislikes animals,” but left open the possibility that he may acquire a pet, saying “it is still too early to tell.”
Perhaps Trump took a cue from the “Dogs against Romney” movement, assuming there’s little return in coveting the dog lovers votes.

One social media user seemed to offer just such a confirmation:
My dogs were barking at Trump this morning. Good dogs.

On the other hand, there’s always this:
For what it’s worth, Boursiquot also wrote about the White House dress code under Trump, citing an “anonymous Trump campaign source” to say that the president — egad! — wants women who work for him “to dress like women.”
