The Commander saga continues for Joe Biden.
Biden’s pup had a penchant for trying to snack on Secret Service agents.
This is a training issue, period, but it also created an unsafe work environment for agents, which is the point of a request made by House Education and Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.).
With there now being 12 documented bites by Commander, Foxx wants to investigate why something was not done sooner to remove Commander from the White House.
She penned a letter to Biden on the issue, writing, “The White House has the responsibility to set an example for ensuring workplace safety and health for its employees. Unfortunately, it has recently come to our attention that it is failing to uphold this responsibility.
“I write to ensure that the White House is maintaining compliance with OSHA’s standards and guidance and is doing so at the same level that the federal government expects of private entities.”
The letter continued, “The White House should not embrace an attitude of ‘rules for thee, but not for me’ when it comes to workplace safety.”
She then demanded information related to workplace accidents and injuries at the White House so Congress could “ensure the White House is living up to its expectations of the private sector.”
Now, I have stated before this is less on the doggie than it is on the Bidens.
In that type of environment, dogs need very specific training… this is not brain surgery.
We see police dogs all the time in crowded areas that do not have these types of reactions, and that is because they are trained to be in social situations with a lot of people.
The White House is like a train station during the day, so the Oval Office is not exactly an ideal location for an untrained pup.
Now, Commander has since been removed and sent back to Delaware, but that does not mean Biden should still not be held accountable.
And yes, I realize that with everything else going on right now, this is an issue that will probably get tabled, but it definitely needs to be addressed at some point.
