Mar-a-Lago charity debate has gone to the dogs
Big Dog Ranch Rescue addresses return to Trump’s club with new canine mascot.
So the folks at Big Dog Ranch Rescue decided to address their return to The Mara-Lago Club with a new spokesman: an eyeglass wearing Weimaraner.
The canine “author” of an advertisement that appeared in last Sunday’s Shiny Sheet opined that politics shouldn’t be an issue, seeing as “some dogs are pro-mailmen and some aren’t;” denies “lifting my leg on a serious issue;” and urged focusing on things that matter, such as tummy rubs.
We see the clever hand of smartypants publicist Chase Scott at work here. Just saying.
As a matter of fact, those might be his eyeglasses the pooch is wearing.
No grinch — Coming soon to a holiday mailbox near you: POTUS himself.
Not Donald Trump himself, actually, but his voice, and his smiling face wearing a Santa hat, standing behind a banner reading “Make Christmas Great Again.”
Open the card, and the script reads “Christmas is not Fake News. Merry Christmas!” as the president’s own voice, in a snippet lifted from a campaign speech, says “We are going to start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again. Merry Christmas.”
So, the president’s image, the president’s voice, his campaign speech and a twist borrowed from his campaign slogan. One might think this is like waving a red Santa hat in front of a litigious bull, but our lawyer friends — the ones who aren’t in prison — say that all is public domain.
