Sarah Palin on Pet Stepping Controversy: Well... Obama EATS Dogs!

by at .

Late last week, former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin found herself in hot water after sharing what she believed to be a cute photo of son Trig and her family's dog.

But many animal advocates disagreed with this adorable assessment, blasting the ex-politician for allowing her child to harm her canine.

Now, in response, Palin has issued an apology and admitted she made a mistake...


She's actually used the opportunity to blast PETA as an organization full of hypocrites, while also bringing President Barack Obama into the controversy.

Addressing PETA on Facebook yesterday, Palin wrote:

"Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?"

Also also noted by a Mitt Romney staffer in 2012, Obama did mention that he dined on dog meat as a boy in Indonesia, labeling the delicacy as "touch" in his memoir, "Dreams From My Father."

Palin went on to accuse PETA of only calling out celebrities who don’t openly support their cause, adding that her family treats its dog better than many folks treat human beings.

Per TMZ, a rep for PETA fires back: “Palin's Facebook response shows us that she knows PETA about as well as she knows geography."

Ohhhh! It is on now, folks.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
