White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirms Major Biden was a bad dog

At Tuesday’s White House press conference, Press Secretary Jen Psaki answered not one but two questions about Major, one of the two German Shepherds in the Biden family, and reports that he was involved in a “bite incident”. Major and older Biden dog, Champ, “are still getting used to and getting used to their new surroundings and new people,” Psaki said. “And on Monday, the youngest dog of the first family, Major, was surprised by an unknown person and acted in a way that resulted in a minor injury to the individual.” (The individual is apparently fine.) The injury “was taken care of by the White House medical unit, with no further treatment required,” Psaki said. Major and Champ’s exile in Delaware had been planned before the incident, timed with First Lady Jill Biden’s visit to military bases, “and the dogs will return to the White House soon,” she added. Responding to the second question on Major – “Another question about dogs? Okay” – Psaki did not confirm that a Secret Service agent was the injured person, but reassured the reporter, and America, that Major would not be euthanized. The White House press corps was not finished. “We’ve heard a lot about dogs – we’ve been promised a White House cat,” one reporter noted. “What happened to this?” Psaki raised his hands. “Where’s the cat? Today is a good day for the cat. I have no updates on the cat. We know the cat is going to break the internet.” For now, anyway, the internet had the Biden dogs – and Oprah Winfrey’s explosive interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, of course.
