The RNC linked to a page on President Donald Trump’s official website, from which visitors could buy the machine washable animal accessory for $16.
“Your faithful companion will thank you when you take him or her for a walk with our MAGA Pet leash,” the product listing stated. “Whether it’s a walk in the park or just around the block, you’ll make your walk great again with this functional and fashionable leash.”
But many animal lovers were not enamored with the Trump-themed leash, and posted a variation of the same joke to Twitter to explain why:
You’ve abused enough of us, our standing, our prestige, our environment, way too many women; please don’t also abuse the animals.

My dogs are too smart to be a member of GOP The dogs believe in Science, Climate Change, Female Reproductions Rights and don’t like Trump because he never had a 🐶 🐕 dog They are Democrats. They know about Russia and Trump’s Treason
