If there was any hope that the holidays would slow down liberal media attacks against President Trump, it is quickly fading. This week, they’re slamming the Trump family Christmas card for being too Christian.
Revealed on Monday, the 2017 White House Christmas card says, “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.” The card is signed by President Trump, First Lady Melania, and 11-year old Barron.
The liberal media was having none of it and didn’t waste a minute telling people about it. In their story about the card, Unilad accuses President Trump of reserving his holiday greetings for Christians.
“While most people think the function of Christmas cards is to spread goodwill to all mankind, it kind of seems like Donald and his family are pretty keen to keep the goodwill among the Christians,” they wrote.
What’s perhaps most interesting about Unilad’s perspective is that it demonstrates so little understanding of the subject matter. The term is not expressly religious. Christmas is a national American holiday, celebrated by a variety of faiths.
An American Celebration
Take Ivanka Trump, for example. She’s Jewish and still wished her followers a “Merry Christmas” along with a “Happy Hanukkah.” The salutation is about more than just religion. It’s about celebrating and sharing good tidings. Even The Washington Post accepts this.
“Merry Christmas” is not a religious greeting,” they wrote in 2016. “The wish for a merry holiday accentuates the jolly party-going, tree-decorating, gift-shopping, cookie-baking aspects of modern American celebrations.”
Regardless of faith or traditions, the debate over President’s Trump’s Christmas card will likely continue. While it is significantly important to his supporters, the subject is simply fodder for his critics. What else is new?
