For years now, conservative faux-Christians in America have been fending off an imaginary “War on Christmas” that no one understands but them. They’ve convinced themselves that they’re somehow a slighted minority, and that if anyone dares say “Happy Holidays” to them, it’s an attack on them. These people are in need of psychological help. They’re also a large portion of Donald Trump’s base. Not surprisingly, he went berserk about it on Christmas Eve. It didn’t go over particularly well with mainstream Americans.
Late on Christmas Eve, Trump tweeted this idiotic garbage: “People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again. I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our cherished and beautiful phrase. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!” No sane person has any idea what he’s talking about, of course. Not shockingly, the responses to Trump’s idiocy were anything but full of holiday cheer.
Jon Favreau of Crooked Media fired back by challenging Trump to “name the town where Jesus was born.” It’s highly unlikely that Trump, who has never been known to have any connection to Christianity or organized religion before he entered the 2016 election as a fake Christian, knows the answer. Another respondent cut to the heart of the matter: “When was there ever an “assault” on the phrase merry Christmas? If only you could lead the charge against those sexual assault accusations.” Yet another respondent responded to Trump sarcastically with “As a world leader – with so many serious issues that need addressing – you must be so proud of this achievement.”
Meanwhile, Palmer Report couldn’t help but fire back at Donald Trump’s berserk tweet by laying out the facts: “President Obama said “Merry Christmas” all the time. You’re making up an imaginary thing that never legitimately existed. Just like your presidency.” You can follow us on Twitter here.
