Conservative writer and pundit Ann Coulter ripped President Donald Trump over a picture of him holding a dog that is recently going viral on Twitter. "Best thing he's done since referring to 'sh#thole countries,'" she tweeted after retweeting the picture, which showed Trump hugging what looked like a beagle while standing in front of a wall full of pictures and other framed documents. It was unclear if the photo was a real one or when it might have been taken. Since Trump famously does not own a pet, many of the people who came across the snap deduced that it might have been photoshopped.

Some of the people who were supporters of Trump slammed Coulter for making fun of the photograph. Others who were anti-Trump, took the opportunity to mock the outgoing commander-in-chief. "Great job Dr.Jill Coulter!" one of them wrote, while another said, "lol and slowly the US is turning into one." A third commented, "Most recent addition to his legal team — talk about loyal!" One more remarked, "Is he protecting our dogs? what?" Another said, "PR at its worst." A commenter tweeted, "Even that dog doesn’t look happy. But nice PR move."

A person wrote, "The dog looks scared." One of them said, "'This cat is heavy'[email protected]" Another quipped, "I feel so sorry for that dog. The only reason he got this poor dog was so he could appear 'nicer.' Didn’t work..." One person said, "That’s a beagle, a scent hound used for beagling, tracking quarry. Maybe it’s on the scent of the steal."

We previously reported that after the White House took a brief break from having a four-legged pet running around the lush green lawns in the Trump era, with Joe Biden declared the 46th president of the United States, one can hope that the president-elect's two German shepherds, Champ and Major will be barking up trees come January. Champ has been with the Bidens since 2008, and the Bidens fostered and then adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Society in 2018. An article on Vogue read, "But Champ and Major moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue isn’t just about photo ops; it represents the White House coming back to life."

Biden also suffered a hairline fracture in his "mid-foot" and will require the help of a “walking boot for several weeks”, his doctor informed on Sunday, November 29. Biden had slipped while playing with his dog Major. Dr. Kevin O'Connor, said, “Initial x-rays did not show any obvious fracture, but his clinical exam warranted more detailed imaging. Follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden's lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot. It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks.”

Apparently, Biden did not become a dog owner till he became the vice president back in 2008. As the story goes, in 2008, Obama promised his wife Michelle that they could get a dog if he won the election. As a result, when he did become the president, the first couple decided to keep the promise and they got their dog Bo, a Portuguese Water Dog, in 2009. Not unlike his boss, Biden also made the same promise to his wife, and that is how Champ entered their lives. However, at the time, many animal lovers slammed Biden because Champ was not a rescue dog and instead was bought from a dog breeder in Pennsylvania. He was named by Biden's granddaughters.

Following the backlash that they received when they adopted Champ, for the second dog, the Bidens decided to visit the Delaware Humane Association. However, if it wasn't for Biden's daughter Ashley, they would have never even heard of Major as she was the one who sent her father a picture of a litter of puppies that needed a home on an urgent basis as they were being exposed to toxins.
