Ivanka Trump trolled after getting a new dog: 'If it was a brown dog, would you put it in a cage?'
The Trump brood just got a little bigger.
Ivanka Trump announced on social media Saturday that her family has welcomed a snow-white pup into their home to mark daughter Arabella’s 8th birthday. The mother of three didn’t clarify what breed the dog, named Winter, is, though many breeders have speculated that it’s a pomsky, a cross between a Pomeranian and a Siberian husky.
While the first daughter called Winter a “birthday dream come true” for her eldest child, the pooch isn’t getting the warmest welcome from commenters on the internet, who are throwing some serious side eye at it’s stark-white fur and comparing its treatment to that of migrant children in border detention centers.
What a beautiful animal!! My heart aches for her knowing she'll have to he rehomed shortly - maybe you should make arrangements in advance as to who will care for her while you & your wife are in jail?— 🌊Sheryl Lynne #tRumpIsARa_ist (@shossy2) July 21, 2019
Just a thought.
If it was a brown dog, would you put it in a cage?— Jon Zal (@OfficialJonZal) July 21, 2019
Winter white...hmm figures, I guess the only color that keeps it out of a cage at the Trump household :-(— Henry (@Fdr1942) July 21, 2019
Thousands of children in US custody havn't bathed or brushed their teeth or even been hugged in weeks thanks to your father but cool you got a new puppy I guess.— Mister Nate (@MisterNate8) July 21, 2019
An all white dog. But of course.🙄— Woman In The Moon (@SassyKadiK) July 21, 2019
Trump supporters pushed back against the criticism, which one called “lame and predictable.”
“Beautiful! Enjoy that sweet pup,” one commenter told Trump, who is married to fellow White House adviser Jared Kushner.
“She’s gonna look gorgeous at the inauguration with a red, white and blue bandana!” a supporter added.
As soon as I saw the dog I knew liberals would talk about the dog being white in color. So lame and predictable. Liberals are just like hollywood, out of new ideas.— America First (@bamspay) July 21, 2019
It’s not the first time Trump’s posts about her family have stirred up backlash and comparisons to the border situation. In April, a photo she shared of her youngest son, Theodore, sleeping on the floor prompted her to joke that he needed a crib, which then drew a flood of children-in-cages comments.
