e're losing track of the ways in which Donald Trump has ruined Christmas, and there are still six days until the actual holiday! For a guy who's purported to be the savior of the holiday, he and his family have sure found a bunch of ways to make it terrible.
His latest gaffe includes a truly awful ornament, which is being sold by the GOP (Ghouls of Pukiness is what it stands for, we're pretty sure). The Internet did not take too kindly to this Christmas decoration, and for good reason: It celebrates Donald Trump.
Donald Trump really wants to end the "War on Christmas" that he's positive is a thing that exists.
He wants us to start saying, “Merry Christmas!” again, even though no one ever stopped saying, “Merry Christmas!” But despite all Trump’s aggressive pandering, almost every single one of his Christmas efforts in his first year as president has gone awry.
First, the crowds at the White House Christmas tree lighting ceremony were much more sparse than usual.
Second, the White House Christmas decorations look like the inside of Melania's cold, sad head.
The decor was so shadowy and dismal that stories began swirling about how much Melania does not enjoy being the first lady. Donald Trump felt he had to tweet about how much Melania absolutely loves her job! And no one believed him.
And then there was the official Christmas family photo.
Yes, the family photo that doesn’t include a full one-third of the family; Barron is missing! Can the Trumps get Christmas right at all? Surely that was the last thing that could go wrong.
But no, there's more.
Earlier this month, Donald Trump made the (irresponsible, rash, inappropriate) announcement that he would recognize Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel. That announcement prompted riots in the street and caused Christmas celebrations in Nazareth to be canceled or at least curtailed a bit. Yes, that Nazareth — the Israeli Arab city in which Jesus was believed to have grown up.
Trump actually caused Christmas to be canceled in Jesus’ hometown.
The official White House Christmas ornament, below, was released without a hitch. It didn't seem to anger or offend anyone, so that's good.
It was designed to honor Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration, and it seems perfectly fine. Perhaps we were out of the woods when it came to things about Christmas that Trump could ruin.
But alas, we were not. The GOP just released a #MAGA Christmas ornament that made people lose their s***…
