Sore Loser Symphony: Donald Trump Is Ruining Christmas

You just had to know that someone was going to go there, right? In this case it is Shikha Dalmia at The Week

Donald Trump is ruining Christmas

I am a Hindu, my husband a Jew. So which religious holiday do we celebrate? Why, Christmas, of course!

Every year, we get the obligatory tree and open presents while sipping eggnog and listening to Nat King Cole’s Christmas album. Later in the day, we bake shortbread cookies with our (Christian) friends and dine over lamb rogan josh and pulao. In short, we may not celebrate this national holiday in a traditional American way (whatever that means), but we have no trouble doing so, much less saying Merry Christmas.

But in Donald Trump’s America, millions of Americans like us who have embraced Christmas voluntarily will become involuntary recruits in his War for Christmas. In the long run that won’t save the holiday, it will doom it.

    Merry Christmas to you all. Even the Jindus.

  2. Jeffery says:

    Did Trump really say: “America will say Christmas again — I can tell you that much.”

  3. formwiz says:

    Much like Jeffery, they really don’t get it.

    And, no, moron, he never said that, as you know full well.

  4. Jeffery says:

    fromwiz,

    I wouldn’t have believed he said that either, being so outside the norm of American thought and deed, but besides the essay, there is this from CNN:

    “I have one of the most successful Starbucks in Trump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks? I don’t know. Seriously, I don’t care. That’s the end of that lease, but who cares?” Trump told a crowd in Springfield, Illinois, on Monday. “If I become president, we’re all going to be saying Merry Christmas again, that I can tell you. That I can tell you.”

    It’s possible this was just part of TheDon’s “dogwhistle” politics signaling far-right Christians that he was “on their side” and would use the power of the State to promote their religion.

    Do you really think TheDon would attempt to force companies to promote Christianity? Or was this just one more campaign lie?

    We understand the Trump/Trumpatista tactic of attacking the media and simply denying what Trump was reported to have said. Is that what happened in this case you think? The media misreported what their own creation said?

    Trump and his team is the master of Saul Alinsky tactics…..Just as Obama was too….As Rahm Emmanuel said….never let a good crisis go to waste……Hit them from all sides….never let up…..ask them to give a plan while never giving one of your own….

    Obama never gave us the ACA….he said he wanted a plan and let them give him one and then no one could blame him…..blame the insurance industry not Obama….it was his plan….dont blame Obama that premiums are skyrocketing the year he LEAVES office….he DIDNT WRITE THE PLAN……..

    So Trump is an Alinsky Disciple……Hit em from all sides, never let up…..never tell them what you will do….and Trump hasnt he just said we will say merry Christmas again………what does that mean……….

    He will leave it up to you as he creates crisis after crisis after crisis like obamalamadingdong did and never had to be held accountable for any of it…..

    Enjoy the next 4 years Jeffery……your head will be spinning like linda Blairs of Exorcist fame trying to keep up with Trump and the Saul Alinsky Tactics the left brought to the political table.

    It will be funny watching your heading spinning while you projectile vomit Green PEA TRUMP SPEAK…..lolol.

  6. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Once again Jeffery, Trump spent his entire life up till the last two years as a New York Liberal Democrat so what do you expect? And since that is a FACT, why do you hate him so much when he is still a New York Liberal Democrat with a (R) after his name rather than a (D)? The man is 70 and for 68 tears he was a (D) and you would have voted for him now suddenly he’s an (R) and he became the worst person on earth. I don’t get it. I would love to see him, in a typical Donald Trump move, change back to democrat the day after the inauguration. That would blow the democrat party to smithereens.

  7. Jeffery says:

    Laim,

    You’re descending into madness.

    Got it. We can’t believe a word Trump says and it’s all liberal’s fault. Hahahaha.

    The Republican Party and their voters elected Trump. Liberals will oppose and resist all his bad ideas and will give his rare good ideas the consideration earned and respected.

    Trump’s mantra is Trump. His tactic is hatred.

    Blow me, loser.

    The GOP owns it all……even a majority of governors and state legislatures….WE DONT NEED THE DEMOCRAPS……The GOP will do what it wants and when stuff starts working, when people go back to work…when people dont have to pay 1000’s of dollars mandated by the government for ACA…..

    The democrats will lose even more ground. Just like the Democrats went it alone with highly unpopular programs and got slaughtered at the polls….I hardly think going it alone on Jobs, rebuilding the cities, infrastructure and revitalizing the military, fixing the VA is going to get the GOP slaughtered at the polls…..

    In fact I surmise the Democrats will lose even more ground as they spend all their time screaming racist, Homophobes and Mysogynists all the while the GOP is working to help blacks, Hispancis, Gays and Women to a better life……

    Just like your unhinged rants Jeffery…..the lefts heads are spinning and as soon as trump takes office they will start spewing pea soup…….ALL OVER THEMSELVES………

  10. Jeffery says:

    Rev,

    you would have voted for him now suddenly he’s an (R) and he became the worst person on earth.

    No. Trump is not the worst person on Earth. He is the worst president-elect in history, though. Trump would never have been a Dem presidential nominee. And no, he would never get our vote for any office unless the Repubs managed to find someone even less fit than Trump. Absolutely nothing that Trump campaigned on recommends him to liberals/Dems. His campaign was meant to rally whites against Blacks, Mexicans, and Muslims- and was a big F-you to liberals, the college educated, feminists, the media, the LGBT community, Blacks, immigrants and non-christians.

    If his base is happy with minority bashing, tax cuts for the wealthy and increased deficits they will be happy with Trump.

    Besides his inclination to support extremist Republican policies, besides his campaign attacks on minorities, besides his promise to nominate a SC justice in the mold of Scalia, besides his lack of basic moral scruples, besides his inability to tell the truth, Trump hasn’t the adult temperament to deal with international challenges, some of which he will likely trigger. We derive no comfort from his childish behavior since the election.

  11. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Jeffery, you needn’t revisit/repeat the same screed each and every time you want to discuss Trump. You have been saying the same things ad infinitum since Trump became a candidate I’d like to suggest you jut make this notation: (@#$%&). This will save space, help your carpel tunnel and save us the monotony of rereading your same bluster and we will take that notation as your usual “repeat” of paragraph one above.

    Having said that we believe you’re kidding yourself if you insist you wouldn’t vote for Trump if he were the democrat candidate. (You’ll notice we didn’t say “lying” because self delusion isn’t lying and because we don’t believe you are lying. Honestly believing or saying something isn’t lying to us).

    It has become impossible to discuss any topic, policy, problem or proposal about anything foreign or domestic because of (@#$%&). When we are faced with a person who will not listen to anything we say because he believes us to be (@#$%&) and therefore subhuman (to steal a Nazi term) the very thought of an exchange of ideas becomes impossible.

    For example, what extremist policies has the Republican Party proposed that would cause you to say: “Besides his inclination to support extremist Republican policies.”? We’d love to know what policies are considered extremist by a guy whose party booed God, ran a damn communist for president and supports babies murdered in the womb. And you say Trump has a “lack of basic moral scruples.”? We don’t think you understand what moral scruples are if you voted Crooked Killary. We all knew what she was back in the 60’s.

  12. Jeffery says:

    Rev,

    Thanks for your advice. We’ll take it under advisement. We understand why you wish to suppress any criticism of your new god-king.

    Extremist Republican policies: Privatization of Social Security, voucherizing Medicare, eliminating Medicaid, flat tax, abortion ban, and more! These are just the policies the GOPers are comfortable talking about. Conservatives are authoritarian at their core, so given absolute power, it could get even worse. This is why minorities eschew conservative politics.

    Trump doesn’t understand our Constitution or America. Crooked Don swindled Americans via his crooked Trump “University”. His Crooked Trump Foundation was caught “self dealing”. He lies at every turn.

    Sec Clinton lost the EC, so she will not be president. Trump won the EC and will be president. He’s the one we must keep an eye on.

    We understand that you find Sec Clinton’s liberalism and activism disqualifying, but we disagree with you. More Americans disagree with you than agree with you.

    Murdering babies is illegal and I will stand side by side with you to stop it. But abortion is not murder. Could you ever vote for a support of abortion rights regardless of their other positions?

    How do you define communist?
