A sharp debate has broken out in the White House. As described in the following story, it appears that the Zoo in Cairo has painted a white donkey with black stripes, and called it a Zebra.
See Siobhán O’Grady„ “Cairo zoo denies painting a donkey and passing it off as a zebra,“ Washington Post, July 27 2018 (11:34 AM).
The White House debate is over whether it’s a donkey or a Zebra. Donald Trump has been adamant in insisting it is a Zebra. CNN had reported it was a donkey.
Trump threatened to fire anyone caught watchimg CNN’s report it was a donkey.
Pundits were confused, but finally concluded the animal was a Republican horse, largely on the basis that it appeared to have a horse’s ass.
