To conservatives, President Barack Obama launched a war on Christmas, but that claim is fake news. On the campaign trail, Trump pledged that Americans would get to “say ‘merry Christmas’ again,” although, that holiday greeting has always been used.
During the campaign, at an Iowa rally in 2015, the former reality show star said, “I’m a good Christian. If I become president, we’re gonna be saying ‘merry Christmas’ at every store.”
On Monday during a stop in Utah, Trump said, “Remember I said we’re bringing Christmas back? Christmas is back, bigger and better than ever before. We’re bringing Christmas back.”
“I think it’s great that we have a president who expresses support for Christmas, and I welcome his doing so,” Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) told The Hill.
“Unfortunately, there are some Grinches out there who oppose Christmas, and I think it’s great for Congress to make a positive declaration that Christmas is a part of our national life. It’s been a federal holiday since the year 1870, and people should freely enjoy, if they so choose, to express themselves as being in favor of Christmas,” he added.
Jesus, who was Jewish, would likely not resent people saying, ‘Happy Hanukkah’ to those of the Jewish faith, but to conservatives, it MUST be ‘Merry Christmas.’
Maybe if Trump wasn’t such a d*ck
during the holidays, he would have had a bigger crowd at the tree lighting ceremony.
