    US President Donald Trump sent the Twitterverse into a tizzy on Wednesday after reposting a photoshopped image of the military dog wounded in the raid that led to the death of Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

    Doggone Photoshopped Shame

    While many netizens had something to say about Trump reposting the image originally doctored by the Daily Wire, 45 took to Twitter on Thursday and countered claims that he was frightened to be around the military dog by announcing the pooch would be visiting the White House “sometime next week.”

    However, in usual Trump fashion, he stirred up more social media controversy by calling the Belgian Malinois by his name - “Conan.”

    Many previously speculated that the dog’s name would remain classified, as it would be possible for those seeking revenge to use the canine’s information to identify US troops involved in the Baghdadi military operation. Indeed, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley previously declined to share the dog’s name for security reasons. Despite the recent outrage, Newsweek previously cited “multiple Defense Department sources” in confirming that Conan was indeed the dog’s name.

      The attempted impeachment of US President Donald J. Trump has undoubtedly been one of the most partisan political spectacles in America’s history, with all members of the rival Democratic Party in the Senate impeachment trial being for his removal from office, and the vast majority of Trump’s Republican Party being against it.
