Under the Biden administration, the Secret Service has been the subject of several controversies. Several agents came under fire over behavior while overseas. Many have questioned why the agency is denying presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., even as he faces threats.
And many still question the Secret Service’s investigation of cocaine on White House grounds. The group claims they could not discover who left the drugs behind. Critics do not believe their report, accusing the agency of a coverup.
But one scandal has led many to wonder about the security of the White House. Secret Service agents have been hurt, as well as other staff. Now, it has happened again, which might lead to calls for action.
President Joe Biden’s younger dog, Commander, bit another US Secret Service agent at the White House Monday evening, CNN has learned, the 11th known biting incident involving the 2-year-old German Shepherd.
Commander has been involved in at least 11 biting incidents… including a November 2022 incident where an officer was hospitalized after the dog clamped down on their arms and thighs.
One of Joe Biden’s dogs, a German Shepherd named Commander, has bit yet another Secret Service agent. The officer had to receive medical treatment and is reportedly doing OK. This is the 11th time the dog has bitten someone, including agents and other White House staff.
It is unclear why this dog has not received adequate training. The dog of a President of the United States should receive training that would prevent it from misbehaving. Yet this animal continues to pose a threat to those tasked with taking care of it.
Joe Biden is 80 years old. There have been no reports of him or his wife training the dog. Commander’s tendency to attack people should have Americans worried about the safety of Biden.
Others might find the behavior of this canine member of the Biden family eerily ironic. They will no doubt draw comparisons between Commander’s terrible behavior with other figures who should have been better disciplined by the senior Biden.
If other dogs had a track record as terrible as Commander’s, they would have been put down at this point. But it is unlikely this animal will face any repercussions for this scandal.
