Opinion: Attacking Joe Biden's dog Champ is a low blow

Bill McGowan and Juliana Silva write that conservative media is scraping the bottom of the barrel in lobbing criticisms at President Joe Biden's German shepherd, Champ. Could this be an attempt to distract from the situation in Texas, where Sen. Ted Cruz left his dog, Snowflake, home alone in the cold?

But if you thought the right-wing couldn't get any more petty and pathetic, Newsmax, that journalistic bastion, went after the Bidens' German shepherd, Champ.

Perhaps in these bitterly partisan times, the old expression, "love me, love my dog," needs to be changed to, "attack me, attack my dog. "

What the Newsmax crew failed to realize is that German shepherds are "working dogs. " They are a breed you're more likely to see in the trenches of a war zone than in an expensive grooming salon.

In just a little over a month, he and his cohort Major, a three-year-old German shepherd, have been put to work in a Covid-19 prevention public service announcement and an inspection of the White House grounds on Valentine's Day. Together, they have also been amassing Twitter followers at a staggering pace.

The timing of the implication by conservative media that Champ is somehow neglected makes one wonder whether this was a "wag the dog" situation, an effort to divert attention from the ongoing crisis in Texas and the saga of poor Snowflake, Ted Cruz's family dog.
