Newsmax host Greg Kelly and a guest on his display on Friday moved after the appearing of President Joe Biden’s dog, Champ, prompting a ripple of criticism and derision on Twitter.
Kelly said that Champ, a German Shepherd, looks like he’s “from the junkyard.”
“Did you assure the dog? I wanted to show you something I noticed. Doesn’t he seemed a little rough? I adoration hounds, but this dog needs a bath and a combing and all kinds of love and care. I’ve never seen a puppy in the White House like this. I recollect Buddy, I recollect Milly, I remember lots of hounds, but not a dog who seems … I don’t know. I don’t know how much adore and care he is getting. This hound looks like, I’m sorry, like it’s from the junkyard, ” Kelly said.

Shirley and Newsmax did not immediately respond to separate requests for comment from Insider.
Though not nearly as well-known as Fox News in terms of right-wing news stores, Newsmax grew in importance among many reactionaries in 2020 as it amplified then-President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of mass voter fraud.
In December, as Newsmax faced potential legal actions over false-hearted election claims it passed oxygen to, the store issued a statement that said it had “no evidence” to support outlandish fraud claims against two voting-machine corporations .
Trump imparted one of his first post-presidency interviews to Newsmax this week, during which he reiterated his false-hearted assertion that the 2020 election was “stolen” and “rigged.” Claims like this from Trump helped catalyze a fatal mutiny at the Capitol on January 6, which led to the former president’s second impeachment.
