Donald Trump's dog

Dana Milbank on


Rex is a big dog. Rex is the top dog. Rex has a good job. Rex can fly! Rex has a jet. Fly, Rex, fly. Rex flies to other lands. Rex sits. Rex shakes. Rex speaks. When Rex speaks, Rex thinks he speaks for the U.S.A.

See Donald. Donald owns Rex. Rex is Donald's dog. Donald is loud. Donald is big. Donald is bigger than Rex. Donald is mean to Rex. When Rex speaks, Donald tweets. Donald tweets like a bird. Tweet, Donald, tweet. Donald's tweets hurt Rex. Donald says: Bad, Rex! Do not speak, Rex. Rex, you do not speak for the U.S.A. Only Donald speaks for the U.S.A.

Rex rolls over. Roll, Rex, roll. Good boy. Rex tells Donald he will not be a bad dog again. Rex tries. Rex tries hard. Rex tries very hard. But then Rex forgets. Rex thinks he speaks for the U.S.A. again. Donald gets mad again. Donald tweets again. Rex rolls over again.

Rex is so sad. Rex wants to cry. Rex was a big boss once. He dug for oil. Dig, Rex, dig. Rex made a lot of bones. But Donald said: Do not dig, Rex. Come be my dog.

Rex began to think. I will not dig for oil, Rex said. I will not make so many bones. I will be Donald's dog.


Now Rex is sorry. Sad, sad, Rex.

Rex flies to China. Rex speaks. Rex says the U.S.A. will talk to Rocket Man. "Would you like to talk?" Rex asks. "We can talk to them. We do talk to them." Talk, Rex, talk.

Oh no! Donald is mad at Rex. Donald tweets. Donald says Rex is "wasting his time." Donald says he will not talk "with Little Rocket Man." Donald tweets, "Save your energy, Rex." Rex has been bad! Rex does not speak for the U.S.A. Rex whimpers. Rex is in the doghouse.

Rex's doghouse has a name. His doghouse is called "State." It is a nice house. Donald thinks Rex's house is too big. Donald wants to make it 28 percent smaller. Chop, Donald, chop. Rex is sad. But Donald is his owner. Rex says: Donald is right. I do not need such a big house.
