Between his failing Bidenomics plan and extremely low poll numbers, President Joe Biden is in big trouble.
And Joe Biden is not alone. Scandals are brewing around Hunter Biden’s business deals with the “Big Guy” and Kamala Harris’ absolute incompetence is on display daily.
But now, someone else is in the dog house at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
The First Dog bites a Secret Service agent again
Commander is a two-year-old German Shepherd and is President Joe Biden’s younger dog.
And now, the dog has bitten a Secret Service agent at the White House yet again in a new incident this week.
According to CNN, this is the 11th known biting incident between Commander and another human.
USSS chief of communications Anthony Guglielmi said, “A Secret Service Uniformed Division police officer came in contact with a First Family pet and was bitten. The officer was treated by medical personnel on complex.”
Guglielmi said that the injured officer spoke with Secret Service Uniformed Division Chief Alfonso M. Dyson Sr. and is doing OK.
According to records, Commander has been involved in at least 11 biting incidents both at the White House and in Delaware.
This information is according to CNN and U.S. Secret Service email correspondence.
One of the incidents occurred in November 2022, when an officer was hospitalized after Commander clamped down on their arms and thighs.
In July, White House officials said the Biden family was working on new training and implementing new leashing protocols following the incidents.
Elizabeth Alexander, communications director for Jill Biden, was asked whether the new training had taken place or if any more action would be sought.
She replied in a statement that “the First Family continues to work on ways to help Commander handle the often unpredictable nature of the White House grounds.”
Alexander continued to say that Joe and Jill Biden “are incredibly grateful to the Secret Service and Executive Residence staff for all they do to keep them, their family, and the country safe.”
Major, also a German Shepherd and another one of Joe Biden’s dogs, was also involved in some biting incidents at the White House.
The dog was later moved out of the White House, and then Commander moved into the White House in 2021.
A track record of biting
When Major bit someone at the White House, First Lady Jill Biden supposedly “couldn’t regain control” of the dog after it charged a member of Secret Service staff in October 2022.
The staff member warned in an email that they believed “it was only a matter of time before an agent/officer is attacked or bit.”
Secret Service agents are not responsible for handling the President’s pets, but they can come into contact with the animals regularly.
Former USSS agent Jonathan Wackrow told CNN that this “isn’t a Secret Service thing. This is a workplace safety issue.”
He emphasized that the White House is not just a workplace for the President and Secret Service members, but also for “hundreds, thousands of people.”
Wackrow emphasized that bringing the dog into the White House was bringing “a hazard into the workplace.”
He also said that it is a serious issue and a “significant hazard” for any agents who are on duty there.
