All things about a president eventually hit the headlines.
Including Joe Biden’s dog, Major, who was confirmed to have bitten someone in two separate episodes earlier this year.
But it turns out that was just scratching the surface, so to speak.
As Biden fights to maintain credibility for the United States amid the catastrophe he allowed to develop in Afghanistan, in which terrorists have taken control, and have attacked and killed both American military personnel and Afghan citizens, he’s facing another controversy.
It appears Major has been on a biting rampage.
In fact, a Secret Service note confirmed, earlier this year, “At the current rate an agent or officer has been bitten every day this week (3/1-3/8) causing damage to attire or bruising/punctures to the skin.”
The controversy was dubbed “Majorgate” earlier in the year when Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security for the records of the biting incidents involving the dog.
WND reported in March when, for the second time, Major sank his teeth into a federal worker.
The dog bit a National Park Service employee who was working on the South Lawn of the White House. The employee was taken to the White House medical unit and treated, the report said.
A spokesman for Jill Biden, Michael LaRosa, suggested the animal is “still adjusting to his new surroundings.”
He said the dog “nipped” someone.
But it was the same dog, a 3-year-old German shepherd, that previously bit another victim and was sent back to the family’s estate in Delaware for a time.
Now, Judicial Watch reports getting 36 pages of records from the Secret Service regarding Major, who reportedly “was responsible for numerous biting incidents of Secret Service personnel.”
A Secret Service official emailed in March: “Attached are a couple of photos from the dog bites SA [redacted] has received the [sic] in the last week from the First Family’s pet (Major).”
The images, however, are blacked out.
“On 3.1.21, SA [redacted] was bit by Major on [redacted] at the Lake House in Wilmington, DE. That bite caused some bruising as seen in the picture dated 3.1.21.
“On 3.8.21, SA [redacted] was bit by Major on [redacted] at the White House. That bite caused bruising and puncture to the skin as seen in the picture dated 3.8.21.
“At the current rate an Agent or Officer has been bitten every day this week (3/1-3/8) causing damage to attire or bruising/punctures to the skin.”
Major even was confirmed to have bitten one agent twice.
About the same time, an agent explained, “This weekend in Wilmington, there were 3 minor incidents where Major nipped/ brushed up and nudged Shift SAs. Panicking or running with only embolden animals so stand your ground and protect your hands/fingers by placing them in your pockets or behind your back.”
Other comments show a warning that “Major (family pet) is not always predictable” and how he “went after the officer…”
There’s also a note about the dog “dropping code,” necessitating a significant cleanup.
During one episode, the emails confirm the “protectee” was “minding the pets.”
Another case had a victim bitten when the “dog made b-line to hm. Got his arm twice.”
Tom Fitton, the watchdog organization’s chief, said, “We’re sure Major is a good dog but these records show he was involved in many more biting incidents than the Biden White House has publicly acknowledged. It is disturbing to see a White House cover-up of numerous injuries to Secret Service and White House personnel by the Bidens’ family pet.”
Biden has claimed Major is “a sweet dog.”
Many local regulations, however, do not allow people to keep dogs that repeatedly bite people, with some imposing a two or three strikes you’re out practice.
