When she was asked at a White House press briefing if all the puppy fanfare was just intended to be a distraction from the Biden administration coming apart at the seams, Jen Psaki got pretty pissy.

She was just pissy because she knew that the Biden administration had just been busted. They’re gonna milk poor Commander for all he’s worth.
President White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain got in on the action, too, by piggybacking on a genuinely good and valuable tweet from Dana Perino:
NEW from me to you:
— Dana Perino (@DanaPerino) December 29, 2021
— Ronald Klain (@WHCOS) December 30, 2021
Ron Klain is right to endorse Dana Perino’s tweet. Unfortunately, he’s also full of crap, as he apparently thinks that we’ve already forgotten how his boss Joe Biden operates:
Or if you’re Joe Biden, you send your old dog away and get a new puppy anyway. https://t.co/GJIeI79sZQ

Annnnnnnd that’s a bingo.

What do you think you’re doing, Ron? Seriously, what?
Pandering to right-wing propagandists who say one good thing is a bad look
— βrett Somers Fanatics (@SiebelBen) December 30, 2021
First of all, Dana Perino is not a “right-wing propagandist.” Second of all, if this is how Ron Klain tries to pander to the Right, it’s no wonder no one on the Right likes him. He’s trying to make Joe Biden the Kindhearted Dog Lover happen, and it’s just not happening.
Puppy is good for photo PR

And yes, it’s purely for PR. Maybe if the White House keeps the focus on how cute Commander is, they’ll forget all about Major, who might’ve actually stood a fighting chance of sticking around had the Biden family shown a little more interest in properly training him and a little less interest in self-promotion.

Joe Biden’s a lousy dog owner, so we hope for Major’s sake that he really is somewhere better off than in the Bidens’ care. If you can even call it care.

Could you imagine having a dog and getting rid of it to get a new one though? Especially at this time of year?
— Soup_To_Nuts (@NutsSoup) December 30, 2021
Or you send your bad boy to ‘the farm’ and then get a new one.

Dana Perino lost a beloved dog she had for years… your boss sent his dog that broke his ankle and kept biting people upstate to live on a farm because he refused to properly train it. Not quite the same thing
— Michael A. Wolff (@WolffintheWild) December 30, 2021
It’s not the same thing at all. But when you work for an administration as broken and desperate as Joe Biden’s administration, you’ve got to throw whatever you can at the wall in the hopes that something will stick.
Even if you know it will ultimately never work.
