After months of promising supporters that they’d magically be allowed to say “MERRY CHRISTMAS” again now that Trump has won the presidency because apparently, Christmas had been outlawed at some point, he now makes a point to exclude every other religious holiday in favor of saying the phrase at every opportunity, even if it’s a month too early.
On behalf of @FLOTUS Melania and the entire Trump family, I want to wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS! May this Christmas Season bring peace to your hearts, warmth to your homes, cheer to your spirits and JOY TO THE WORLD! #NCTL2018? pic.twitter.com/XNMJQ5JDSU

Trump remembered for once to include his wife and family in his sentiments, but no one really cares. Do you?
Of course, Trump’s Christmas wishes only extend to some people. For instance, he’s not wishing “peace to the hearts” of any migrant woman who walked a thousand miles with a baby on her back to get her family to a better life. Transgender soldiers are also excluded this holiday season, as are Muslims, journalists, anyone from a “sh*thole country,” and Hillary Clinton. He’s offered no joy to the soldiers actively fighting in war who will get no visit from the president this Christmas, no cheer to the veterans going bankrupt waiting on VA payments for their housing and education, and no warmth to the “haters and losers.”
It’s as if Trump just doesn’t understand that he can’t serve as the Twitter-troll-in-chief for 364 days a year and then play the statesman on social media when it suits him. There are few more xenophobic acts than insisting that white Christianity is superior to every other religion and that one group of people who celebrate a holiday are more important and deserve special recognition every year while ignoring everyone else.
Twitter wasn’t exactly in the holiday spirit after reading Trump’s tweet. Read some of their comments below:
