On Christmas Eve, Trump spent the majority of his day tweeting about being “alone” and being forced to work during his own government shutdown. He also took the time to blame the Democrats for keeping him from building his big beautiful wall.
I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security. At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy!

He has tweeted a total of 12 times so far today, and we won’t subject you to all of them, but click here for a link to his Twitter page if you’re curious.
It would have been nice if that was ALL Trump did on Christmas Eve, but no… Unfortunately, several of our Nation’s children were subjected to awkward conversations with Trump tonight when they called the NORAD hotline to ask about the whereabouts of Santa Claus.
In case you didn’t know about it, NORAD runs a Santa Tracker that kids can watch to see where Santa is and how close he might be to their homes. The Santa Tracker has been around since 1955 and it’s a lot of fun for kids and parents alike. Here’s the link if you’d like to check it out. NoradSanta.org.
Normally, parents would be thrilled if their children had an opportunity to speak to a president and talk about Santa and what they want for Christmas, but this year was likely a completely different story, especially for one child who Trump made the mistake of asking if he still believed in Santa. The child, whose name is Coleman, is 7 years old… of COURSE, he believes in Santa! Why else would he be calling? The conversation was super awkward, as our so-called “president” said:
‘Merry Christmas. How are you? How old are you?…. Are you doing well in school? Are you still a believer in Santa?’
At that point, there was a pause in the conversation and we don’t know exactly what the child said in response, but then, making matters worse, Trump said:
‘Because at seven it’s marginal, right?’
Just listen for yourselves. It’s really, really embarrassing.

I hope that child’s parents were able to do a little damage control and explain away Trump’s idiotic comments! If Trump is still in office next year, maybe it would be best if he wasn’t allowed to speak to the children again. I don’t think I’m alone in my opinion. Check out some of the responses on Twitter:
