Default Can somebody explain this Trump tweet for me?

Quote:
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again. I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our cherished and beautiful phrase. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Did people stop saying merry christmas? I'm genuinely interested in what he's referring to.

There was a fake campaign for and against Christmas that political pundits on both sides exaggerated. Case in point Donald Trump.

Snowflakes trying to victimize themselves. Nobody gives a shit if you say Merry Christmas or happy holidays. Just don't expect it said back. That's what you pusses are crying about. If you are of a different religion, you probably won't say Merry Christmas unless you celebrate it.

Companies took off saying Merry Christmas so they could be more inclusive. But not your racist asses. If anything changes around your ways, you go to the "Back in my day, America was great. When white people could walk around without seeing minorities."

NO ONE EVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH PEOPLE SAYING MERRY CHRISTMAS. You had a problem with people NOT saying Merry Christmas.

Snowflake Trumptards doing Trumptard things, per usual. Carry on.

this thread is the epitome of trumptard theology. trumpards keep complaining about snowflakes, that they themselves have become the sensitive, complaining snowflakes. you idiots literraly just made shit up out of thin air about merry christmas and are complaining about liberals for it.

levels of stupidity by trumptards is astonishing.

Corporate marketing started using "Happy Holidays" so they could sell their shit to everyone (inclusive). Snowflake Christians got offended and tried to make it a political issue by blaming liberals for a problem that doesn't even exist.

Probably leftist subversive organisations like the SPLC that are often quoted by people on this site:

https://hatetracker.io/hashtag/chris...-03/2017-12-24


Christmas hashtag is hatred.

We've been told at my job to stop using Merry Christmas because a few loud mouths complained. But maybe you know more about my job than I do.

Well from a personal POV (not the porno shit, get your mind out of the gutter) I started to get a lot of negative feedback in the 90s when I would say Merry Christmas. I never understood it because if a Jewish person said Happy Chanukah to me or if a hippy wished me happy winter solstice I was never offended. But boy oh boy did some of my patients get offended with Merry Christmas. It got so bad that we had to have a staff meeting and make sure all the employees were saying Happy Holidays.

shut your trap bitch .. merry christmas has always been an overwhelmingly american/western phrase so why was it ever suppressed in the first place is the question .. the only racists here are the people trying to suppress it .. obviously many do as evidenced by dresta's post .. MERRY CHRISTMAS is back .. and you're gonna accept it .. because you have to

here .. watch it over and over again since you have no problem with it .. straight from the leader of the free world .. most powerful man on the planet .. enjoy fggt
