Trump VP Kristi Noem suggests Biden’s dog should be put down

South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem hinted that President Joe Biden’s dog Commander should face the same fate as her own 14-month-old dog Cricket, who she shot for his behavior aggressive, as she revealed in her upcoming memoir.

“Joe Biden’s dog attacked 24 members of the Secret Service. So how many people does it take to be attacked and dangerously injured before you make a decision about a dog?” Noème said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “This is the issue the president should be held accountable for.”

The Biden administration announced in October that Commander had been transferred off White House grounds after various incidents in which he bit or attacked U.S. Secret Service agents.

Noem’s comment Sunday comes as she faces considerable backlash from Democrats and Republicans for anecdotes in her upcoming memoir about decisions to personally slaughter various animals on her family farm, including cricket and an unnamed goat.

As she vies to become Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick, some, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, have argued that controversial excerpts from her memoir have hurt her chances.

Since the anecdotes from Noem’s memoir were made public, the South Dakota governor has done damage control to save his vice presidential bid.

On Sunday, Noem doubled down on her defense of cracking down on Cricket, saying the dog attacked her children and that the backlash she received was politically motivated.

“This is a story that my political opponents have been trying to use against me for years,” Noem said. “They do the same thing to me that they do to Donald Trump every day.”
