The Obama Family Release Holiday Message Of Love To America


Former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama shared Christmas messages with Americans this weekend, providing a stark contrast to the consistent vitriol coming out of ex-President Trump’s circles. During this holiday season, Americans are benefiting from major policy moves by the Biden administration, including its efforts to boost the economy out of the chaos brought on by the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Biden administration has also helped with bringing Americans out of pandemic-related turmoil by presiding over an ongoing nationwide vaccination program, allowing Americans to get safely protected against the virus.

The former president shared a picture of the Obamas’ family dog with his Christmas message, writing as follows:

‘Merry Christmas, everybody! This year, I got a little help spreading holiday cheer from Sunny. Wishing you all a peaceful and joyful holiday season with the ones you love.’

The former First Lady, meanwhile, told Americans the following as Christmas began:

‘Merry Christmas from our family to yours! Barack and I send our best wishes to you all for a safe, healthy, and joyful holiday season.’

In contrast, Trump’s Christmas Day message resorted to his long overplayed political messaging. He wrote:

‘Merry Christmas to all. We will Make America Great Again!’

Obviously, it’s all nonsense, but apparently he didn’t do a very effective job of making America “great again” the first time if it’s already been undone by less than a full year of Biden’s presidency. And besides, real-world metrics show that certain aspects of American society have shown significant, positive improvement over recent months: unemployment claims have sunk to new lows, GDP across Biden’s first year has reached the fastest first-year growth rate seen by any president in the last 50 years, and corporate profits have reached the same kind of historic high, surpassing the previous approximately five decades of U.S. presidents in their first years. These things mean more than Trump’s vapid notions of “greatness.”
