Video of Biden Seemingly Kicking His Dog Raises Pet Abuse Concerns
Joe Biden’s pet dogs have been showing aggressive behavior and biting secret service agents. Now a video of Biden mishandling his dog and kicking it in the face has emerged, fueling the speculations that the sitting president is likely abusive to his pet dogs.
Biden’s second pet dog, named Commander, was removed from the White House, as reported earlier this month, due to aggressive behavior shown toward Secret Service personnel that are part of Biden’s primary security protocol. Commander was involved in multiple biting incidents, more than the White House previously acknowledged.
On Wednesday (October 4), Daily Mail reported with images from the White House that Commander bit a White House staffer, a senior citizen, in the garden back in September. The incident was photographed by a visitor, who chose not to be named. The staffer, Dale Haney, later denied being bitten and stated that Commander was just playing with him.
But Commander’s aggressive behavior was reported from other sources and his removal from the White House follows the same story repeated with Biden’s previous pet dog, the German Shepherd named Major, that was also rehomed after multiple biting incidents at the White House during Biden’s first year as the president.
The question arising of these repeated biting incidents of aggression by Biden’s pet dogs is why they attack people. Since dog behavior experts see dog aggression, particularly biting, as commonly associated with fear and/or pain, Biden has become a suspect of possible dog abuse.
On Thursday (October 5), Libs of TikTok posted a Fox News video of Joe and Jill Biden getting off Air Force One along with their German Shepherd pet dog, walked on the leash by Joe Biden. As he struggles to handle the dog, Biden is seen hitting the dog’s face with his leg. Libs of TikTok posted that the video shows Biden kicking the dog.
Many comments on the video said it was visible proof of Biden’s abusive behavior toward his dog. However, there were the opposing voices stating that the video post is misdealing and Biden is just trying to keep the dog under his control and from getting unwieldy with one comment suggesting that Biden simply “redirected him with his leg.”
Raymond Arroyo of Fox News, talking to Harris Faulkner, wondered why are the Biden’s dogs so aggressive?
The same day the video of Biden struggling to handle his dog hit the social media, Judicial Watch announced the filing of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in D.C. against the Secret Service to obtain official records of aggressive behavior and biting incidents by Commander. The lawsuit comes after the Secret Service failed to respond to a Judicial Watch request for records filed in July this year. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called it a case of corruption to hide records of attacks by Biden’s dog against the Secret Service:
“The ongoing Biden administration cover-up of the Biden dog attacks on Secret Service agents is dangerous corruption.”
Later, On October 6, Fitton tweeted that Biden beats his dogs according to sources privy to the Judicial Watch.
In the video, Fitton reads the statement of his source telling that Biden punches and kicks his dogs. He added that he would not put it out there if it was not a reliable source.
