Last weekend, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump drew the ire of pundits and social media trolls when he asked rally attendees in Orlando, Florida to raise their right hands and pledge to vote for him. Many were incensed because, at first glance, it looked like the GOP front-runner was encouraging his supporters to make a Nazi-esque salute. He wasn’t, and when asked about it in subsequent interviews, Trump claimed to have not known about the problem until the media started asking him about it. Lots of the attention was paid to this issue (and whether or not it was an issue at all), but the panel discussions ultimately distracted everyone from the real issue: why one of Trump’s supporters was allowed to force his dog to do the salute.
The internet first caught wind of the defiant doggie when Politico published a Vine of the incident on Tuesday. Throughout the following few days, both the Vine and the original clip went viral as everyone who’d been too angry at Trump’s apparent anti-Semitism had their eyes open to yet another affront. A person forcing his canine companion to raise his (or her) right paw and pledge to vote for the Donald in the Florida Primary on March 15? It’s outrageous! (Mainly because dogs cannot legally vote in the United States, nor anywhere else in the world for that matter.)
