“Poop Gate”

original article written by Net Advisor

The White House is denying reports that “Bo” (The Obama’s family dog) took a #2 on Air Force One. [Watch video of this story (Source: NBC News)].

However President Obama acknowledged to NBC around the time of the apparent incident, ‘Bo has chosen notable venues in the past.’

President Obama:

“We go out and we’re walking and I’m picking up poop, and in the background is the beautifully lit White House,” the president said. “It’s quite a moment.”

Bo has been quite the dog as he has apparently been known to ‘tear through magazines, socks, and the President’s gym shoes’ (Source: CBS).

The Journal attempted to further verify the incident, but the White House denied the incident, despite contrary loose information:

“The source of the story refused to recant. A press officer for the 89th Airlift Wing, which includes Air Force One, had no comment. A government airline carpet contractor didn’t return calls.”

Next time Bo, lay off the in-flight peanuts.
