Trump did not of­fend dogs

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND VOICES -

Even though Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump is of­ten called out on his posts or state­ments, and I mostly agree when that hap­pens, let’s take a step back into re­al­ity. A per­son wrote in to say he thought Pres­i­dent Trump was out of line for say­ing ISIS leader Abu Baker al-Bagh­dadi “died like a dog. He died like a coward.” (“Trump in­sulted dogs in his brag­ging about the death of the leader of Isis,” Oct. 30)

That has been an ac­cepted say­ing for my whole life of 57 years. I am a dog lover who cur­rently calls my Choco­late Lab my best friend. Come on peo­ple, next you will say the phrase “a cat has nine lives” is of­fen­sive to those who re­cently lost a pet cat. Get real peo­ple, if you want to get of­fended or you want to crit­i­cize Pres­i­dent Trump, do so with an hon­est topic and not some­thing peo­ple have been say­ing for­ever.
