Donald Trump WTF?!

Trump Tells Newsmax He Rescued Christmas: ‘Brought It Back Very Quickly!’

If you enjoy this time of the year and are a big fan of Christmas, you should be down on your hands and knees thanking failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump for rescuing the holiday from destruction.

Or at least that’s what Trump wants you to believe.

Speaking with Mike Huckabee of Newsmax, Trump couldn’t wait to toot his own horn and pat himself on the back for keeping Christmas from being destroyed by people who insist on saying “Happy Holidays.”

Huckabee prompted Trump by remarking:

“We went through a long period where people quit saying Merry Christmas. You deliberately changed that!”

Trump responded:

“It was embarrassing for stores to say ‘Merry Christmas,’ you’d see these big chains, they want your money but they don’t want to say ‘Merry Christmas.’ They’d use reds, they’d use whites and snow but they wouldn’t say Christmas!”

The failed ex-president then added:

“When I started campaigning, I said, ‘You’re going to say Merry Christmas again,’ and now people are saying it.

“We brought it back very quickly!”

Brought it back quickly? It was never gone! People have been saying “Merry Christmas” for hundreds of years and no one stopped saying it. The fact that businesses chose to include those who celebrate Hanukkah and Kwanza (or don’t recognize any of those) was done to keep from excluding those who don’t do the Christmas thing.

For some unknown reason, this whole “war on Christmas” got started on right-wing media to make it appear that Christians were being persecuted. That’s a lie. No one cares what you say during the Holidays. It doesn’t change what you believe in your heart. The only thing that can do that is believing bullshit spread by propagandists, fascists, and liars.

Donald Trump didn’t rescue or save Christmas. He just needs something to claim credit for because his presidency was a miserable failure.
