A Donald Trump supporter forced his dog to lift its paw in a loyalty oath to the Republican presidential frontrunner at a campaign event that has been likened to a Nazi rally.

On Saturday, Trump encouraged his backers in Orlando, Florida, to raise their right hands and promise to vote for him in the upcoming primary in that state.

Today, a Vine posted by Politico and picked up on by the Independent Journal's @JoePerticone , showed a man in the audience, helping, his dog take part in the ritual.


"Don't forget you all raised your hand, you swore," Trump told the crowd of humans and dog(s?). "Bad things happen if you don't live up to what you just did."

Trump has dismissed as "ridiculous" the idea the footage looked like his supporters, man or canine, were emulating a Hitler salute.

Can dogs even vote? Bad dog.
