The War on Christmas Starting Already in July

Every year, the War on Christmas starts earlier and earlier. This year, Trump got it started with a talk at a conference put on by Christian supremacist Robert Jeffress, waxing stupid about the subject and demagoguing about those poor, persecuted Christians in America.

The war on Christmas came early this year.

That is, according to President Trump, who devoted a large portion of his speech at a Celebrate Freedom event at the Kennedy Center on Saturday to railing against those who might try to shy away from overt references to Christianity in American discourse.

“Our religious liberty is enshrined in the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights. The American founders invoked our Creator four times in the Declaration of Independence,” Trump said. “Benjamin Franklin reminded his colleague at the Constitutional Convention to begin by bowing their heads in prayer. I remind you that we’re going to start staying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”

Right. Because no one said that before Trump was elected. And he’s done so much to make sure people will start saying it now. Like…um…nothing. At all. Welcome to Trumpworld. Any resemblance to the real world is entirely non-existent.
