In a speech at Liberty University in January of this year Donald Trump said, “If I’m president you will see ‘Merry Christmas’ in department stores, believe me.”
For far too long America has been under siege with complaints, litigation, angry protests and threats from secular liberals through the coordinated work of the scroogey American Civil Liberties Union and atheists who claimed they were just protecting the constitutional rights of non-Christians. We are a nation which is overwhelmingly Christian. We want to celebrate Christmas in peace without having to hide behind closed doors to do so. We’re weary of being persecuted.
At a “Thank You” rally in West Allis, WI Tuesday night President-elect Donald Trump kept his promise to Wisconsinites to return to say “Merry Christmas”. Behind him on stage were six beautifully decorated Christmas trees and the placard on his lectern read: Merry Christmas USA.
During the 8-year-long presidency of The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer he has never uttered the word “Christmas”.
His final Christmas card reads: “Happy holidays. As our family reflects on our many happy years spent in the White House, we are grateful for the friends we’ve made, the joy we’ve shared, and the gifts of kindness we’ve received. We wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and a wonderful new year.”
On the front of the card, a photo—taken at a state dinner in March honoring Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau—shows him and his family sporting formalwear and wide smiles. He is just the fourth known president to ever feature a photo of himself on the White House Christmas card since the tradition began in 1927—a testament to his arrogance and narcissism.
Naturally, the Left is apoplectic over Trump telling those attending his Thank You Tour rallies that we will start saying “Merry Christmas” again. His words are to them like nails on a chalkboard.
One disgusting website proclaimed its disgust saying the phrase “Merry Christmas” had now been officially weaponized “into the partisan slogan of a president elected on a wave of hateful rhetoric.”
One commenter wrote, “Truly, it’s what a Middle Eastern Jew who was born in a barn because no one else would take his parents in would have wanted. One more reason not to say it. And Trump’s election is one more reason to doubt God’s existence.”
How utterly vile.
Today, from the doctor’s office I visited to the grocery store where I shopped to the pharmacy where I picked up my meds to the restaurant I ate at with friends I said, “Merry Christmas!” Everyone, and I do mean everyone, wished me a Merry Christmas in return. I hope this means the war on Christmas is over.
In his most recent rally, President-elect Trump said "Merry Christmas" 3 times. We'll be providing free therapy for anyone offended by this.— Josh Earnst (@NotJoshEarnest) December 15, 2016
