The Swamp reported yesterday on the latest news at the White House, complete with this video.
This reporter has no clue about dogs. The beginning of the video shows Barney turning away from the reporters, and at no time was his tail wagging. This was a Barney who wanted to be left alone. And when the clueless reporter stuck his hand in Barney's face, Barney let him have it.
To be fair, the reporter was a good sport about it, showing off his bandaged finger (treated by the White House physician, no less!) and discussing his treatment.
So now we know Barney is one more member of the Bush family that doesn't take any mistreatment from reporters.
