Sarah Palin wished her Facebook followers a happy New Year by posting pics of her 6-year old son Trig using their dog as a ‘stepping stone’ – but what she got in return was a ton of backlash for animal cruelty.
The former Alaska governor-vice presidential candidate posted the pics on Facebook Thursday, writing, ‘Happy New Year! May 2015 see every stumbling block turned into a stepping stone on the path forward. Trig just reminded me. He, determined to help wash dishes with an oblivious mama not acknowledging his signs for “up!”, found me and a lazy dog blocking his way. He made his stepping stone.’
Now while Jill Hadassah – the dog in question – does not seem to be complaining as far as the pics show, and the message Palin was trying to pass across is clear, it still didn’t stop some of the commenters from screaming ‘abuse’, blasting the politician for being an ‘ignorant fool.’
But in her defense, one commenter wrote, ‘Trust me people, if the dog was feeling pain in anyway, he would have gotten up and moved. My son used to sit on my sisters lab all the time, with no problem. If the dog was chained down and couldn’t move and being jumped on – THAT”S ABUSE! Idiots!’
