Donald Trump is an outlier in many ways— from his unconventional campaign to his unorthodox presidency, the current president definitely likes to break the mold. He may also break with convention by being the first president without a pet in the White House in the last 150 years. Sad!
Most of our forefathers had four-legged friends alongside them as the ruled the free world. Some notable pets include John Adams' dog named Satan (sorry Donald, no copying), Abraham Lincoln's turkey and Calvin Coolidge's menagerie of animals, including a Pygmy hippopotamus, a black bear, and a duiker.
Surely there has to be some animal that would be excited to greet President Trump every day and cuddle up on the spot of his lap usually reserved for Russian cocktail waitresses. Here are some suggestions that would be fitting of our president:
A goldfish that is actually made out of gold.
Iago, the parrot from Aladdin.
"Newt" Newt Gingrich.
One of the grizzly bears Betsey DeVos was talking about.
A pissed-off bald eagle.
An actual mule from Moscow.
A pet rock that is actually a pet diamond.
Melania's crocodile skin shoes.
A camel with a whole lot of straws on its back.
One of those things that crawled out of the swamp when he "drained it."
According to The Washington Post, rumor has it that Donald Trump might adopt a Goldendoodle (a golden retriever and poodle mix) named Patton. However, we aren't convinced that he isn't just considering a goldendoodle so he can steal some of the dog's fur to fill out his toupée.
