Like most Republicans and fools who don’t think ahead, Donald Trump is opposed to regulations, including regulations that keep your best friend from being poisoned. Trump wants to stop the FDA from regulating what is in our food, calling the FDA the “food police,” even complaining about the regulation of dog food:
Donald Trump often suggests that dogs can be fired. But who could have guessed that he would come out against safe food for all those unemployed canines? Now may be the best time of all to try a raw dog food like those from natures menu before the food your furry friend eats is restricted.
In an official fact sheet that was pulled offline on Thursday afternoon—but not before The Hill reported its key points—the Trump campaign railed against the “FDA food police,” complaining that the agency “dictate[s] how the federal government expects farmers to produce fruits and vegetables and even dictates the nutritional content of dog food.”
The FDA does indeed regulate pet food—but that’s for good reason. Eleven of the 23 pet food recalls by the FDA since September of last year pulled chow off shelves due to food poisoned by listeria and salmonella.
Even Keith Olberamnn is wondering WTF is Trump’s problem with dogs.
