Trump Makes His Weirdest War On Christmas Attack Yet

Halloween is nearly two weeks away, but President Donald Trump just fired a salvo in the “war on Christmas” with a strange new line of attack on former Vice President Joe Biden. While speaking in Carson City, Nevada, on Sunday, Trump seemed to blame the coronavirus lockdowns earlier this year on Biden. “Under the Biden lockdown, the lights of Reno and Las Vegas were extinguished,“ 他说. Yet Trump was president during the lockdowns this year. Biden was a private citizen with no government role at all. Trump then claimed Biden would cancel the upcoming Christmas season if elected. \”The Christmas season will be canceled\” — Trump says Biden will cancel Christmas— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) 十月 19, 2020 “If he comes in, Carson City will become a ghost town and the Christmas season will be canceled,” Trump said. Biden would not take office until Jan. 20 ― well after the Christmas season ― should he win the election. The former vice president is also a practicing Catholic who celebrates the holiday. There is, 然而, one person who might not mind canceling Christmas: first lady Melania Trump, who was caught on audio trashing the holiday. “I’m working my ass off on the Christmas stuff, that you know, who gives a fuck about the Christmas stuff and decoration?” Melania Trump said in recording released by former friend and aide Stephanie Winston Wolkoff. “But I need to do it, right?” In the past, Trump has made random shout-outs to Christmas in just about every season, including summer, often claiming he brought the holiday back along with the phrase “Merry Christmas.” Neither the holiday nor the phrase had ever fallen out of favor. Trump’s latest out-of-season Christmas reference drew quite the reaction on Twitter: The people cheering Trump taking credit for people saying Merry Christmas will believe anything.— Schooley (@Rschooley) 十月 19, 2020 Fun fact:-I staffed @joebiden for nearly a decade. Every year, he threw a Christmas party for staff.Bonus fact:-He alternated the site between his home in Wilmington & his DC office. To show that staff based in the Capital were no more highly-valued than those in Delaware.— Jonah Blank (@JonahBlank) 十月 19, 2020 As a reminder, we recently learned that Melania Trump also wanted to cancel the Christmas season.— Olivia Nuzzi (@Olivianuzzi) 十月 19, 2020 Christmas is basically canceled due to your awful covid response.— Aaron (@TheSarcasmShow) 十月 19, 2020 “Who gives a fuck about the Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right?”—Melania Trump— Seth Cotlar (@SethCotlar) 十月 19, 2020 Trump says Biden is going to cancel Christmas which at least should get Biden a vote from Melania, since we all know how much she hates that \fucking Christmas stuff\— Abraham Lincoln (@SurrealALincoln) 十月 19, 2020 At least Melania won’t have to put up those fucking Christmas decorations— Ed Solomon (@ed_solomon) 十月 19, 2020 HuffPost冠状病毒指南在此处获取最新的冠状病毒更新. 冠状病毒疫苗到来后生活会怎样? 您现在需要了解的有关口罩的所有信息. 您仍应消毒以预防COVID-19? 您今年早些时候可能患有冠状病毒吗? 不断与您的伴侣争论冠状病毒的风险? 你不是一个人. 每个人都应该得到有关COVID-19的准确信息. 通过今天成为HuffPost会员,支持无付费壁垒的新闻业-并使每个人都免费.
