Today, former president George W. Bush went on Today to speak with his daughter, a host of the show, about how Putin dissed Barney. First, they had to get past some stuff about Bush’s artistic side and his paintings of world leaders. But then, it was on:
“As you know, our dear dog Barney, who had a special place in my heart,” began Bush. “I introduced him to Putin, Putin dissed him and said, ‘You call it a dog?'”
Harsh. Whatever, Putin.
