Love him or hate him, most people have a pretty strong opinion about American President Donald Trump. He may have gone too far, though, for some pet lovers, when he recently insinuated that pet owners were ‘low class.’

In light of Vice President Mike Pence’s cat recently passing, the comments from President Donald Trump about pet ownership being a sign of ‘low class,’ make him seem especially callous and insensitive, and have incited some anger in pet lovers everywhere who are offended for their furry family members.

In a recent piece in The Atlantic, a Trump adviser said that the president thinks owners of pets were ‘low class,’ and that he was embarrassed for Vice President Mike Pence, who has several family pets.

According to the adviser, President Trump feels that pet ownership is ‘low class,’ and a sign of essentially being a ‘country bumpkin’ or a ‘yokel.’

You know the Interwebs didn’t take that lightly, blowing him up on Twitter, but considering the President is the first pet-less president in 150 years, we are not surprised. Pets in the White House are about as American as apple pie, but…not in this new administration, it seems.

Sure, @realDonaldTrump has insulted almost every sort of human that there is, but now he's gone too far: He said that pet owning is low class. That's all you need to know about him….

Look at that…this may be the first time since he was elected the President has crossed party lines and infuriated the entire country at the same time. I’ve always said it says something about a person who doesn’t like pets or babies.
