Trump surrenders in the war on Christmas

“Happy Holidays!” Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and White House adviser, tweeted earlier this month, adding a kissy-face emoji. She dared do this in a tweet that included a photo of her posing in front of Christmas trees.

“Happy Holidays from [Trump Winery],” tweeted Eric Trump, the president’s son and a veteran of the 2016 presidential campaign during which Christmas restoration was a core issue. (On the trail, the president would often emphasize to roaring applause that if he became leader of the free world, “we’re gonna start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”)

The Trump scion seemed to at least acknowledge the betrayal, given that he subsequently “liked” a reply-tweet that read, “Come on daddy said it’s supposed to be Merry Christmas.”
