Hero dog meets the press in ‘SNL’ sketch

Co-Host Brian Kilmeade introduced the segment, saying "despite the fact that military working dogs are not eligible, veterans are now calling for the canine, who was injured in the raid, to receive the Purple Heart".

Would our draft-dodging president whimper and run if facing a stampede of dogs and men who wanted to kill him?

Once again, and not surprisingly, President Trump has shown a lack of discretion, of human empathy, of humanness. But I also do not celebrate, nor do I think our nation should celebrate, anyone's death. However, the way that Trump described the U.S. Military dog that chased down Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was probably the most weird part of the conference.

"American Hero!" the tweet read.

"Our canine, I call it a dog, a attractive dog - a talented dog - was injured and brought back", Trump said.

McKenzie said the dog has functioned with special operations forces for four decades and participate in about 50 assignments. The dog was trained by a company from Best, the Netherlands, which later sent her to the US.

The Raptors did a great job of battling back and making things close, but their slow start is to blame for the loss in this one. He continued to do everything he could to keep the Raptors in the game, heading into halftime with a team-high 17 points.


President Trump confirmed earlier that ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed. Trump has spoken of the dog in glowing terms in the days since the raid.

Donald Trump faced massive backlash after he tweeted a fake picture of the dog involved in the Bagdadi raid getting medal of honour.

Trump's heroic assassination of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was mourned in a Washington Post obituary as an "austere religious scholar", has been the source of great controversy in the media establishment.

However, later in another tweet Donald Trump thanked the Daily Wire for recreating the "cute" photo adding that the hero dog Conan will leave for the United States next week.

The image, apparently produced by the Daily Wire, a conservative site, is an altered version of an actual photograph of Trump awarding the medal of honour in 2017 to James McCloughan, a retired army medic who was honoured for saving the lives of 10 people during the Vietnam war, The New York Times reported.
