Ivanka Trump bought a dog for her daughter Arabella, and Twitter has some thoughts about her choice of breed. The all-white dog, named Winter, appears to be some sort of American Eskimo mix (or something similar), and plenty of people have suggested that perhaps Trump had a reason for choosing a dog that’s so, well, white.
Actress Nancy Lee Grahn replied to Trump‘s photo of Winter on Twitter, writing, “How darling. I see you skipped a rescue and went straight to an Aryan breeder. Does it sit and sieg heil yet?”
While it’s unclear whether or not Winter is being crate-trained, one person, linking Winter’s adoption with the inhumane treatment of immigrants at the Mexican border, asked Trump: “If it was a brown dog, would you put it in a cage?”
Another followed suit, writing that Winter would probably have a pretty plush life, “unlike those children locked in cages living in unsanitary conditions & abused down at the border,” adding, “I bet the nanny will be forced to walk Winter, right?”
And yet another Twitter user asked, “Will [Winter] be locked in a cage now that it’s been taken from its mother?”
The Nation sports editor Dave Zirin suggested that maybe “Complicit” would have been a more apt name than Winter, and honestly, I couldn’t agree more.
