His special forces compadres could not join him, President Donald Trump, Vice President Pence, and First Lady Melania in the Rose Garden for a press conference, but Conan, the Belgian Malinois who cornered the world’s most dangerous terrorist prompting the war criminal to detonate his suicide vest, got to go to a very special place on Monday, and it looked like the pooch was lapping up the attention.
Good morning. So this is Conan — right now, probably the world’s most famous dog. I don’t think — I have to use the word “probably.” And Conan is an incredible — it’s an incredible story. I learned a lot about this particular type of dog. And it’s trained that, if you open your mouths, you will be attacked. You want to be very, very careful.

We spent some good time with it. And so brilliant, so smart — the way it was with the Special Forces people that it worked with. And for obvious reasons, they can’t be out in front of the media.
But they did a fantastic job. Conan did a fantastic job. And we’re very honored to have Conan here and to have given Conan a certificate and an award that we’re going to put up in the White House.

And that is why we in America treasure our four legged friends.
