In just over a month since he was elected, President-elect Donald Trump has said plenty of things that have brought panic to liberals, while inspiring long-absent optimism in millions of others. Many of us are still pinching ourselves that our nation has stemmed the tide of political correctness. Well, ’tis the season for good cheer, and the eight words President-elect Trump just said will definitely have you cheering.
At a rally in Michigan, Trump heralded what he called the return of the ubiquity of the phrase “Merry Christmas” during the festive occasion.
These are the eight words Trump said that thrill millions of Christian Americans: “We’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again.”
Noting that department stores have adopted “Happy Holidays” in place of the traditional Christian greeting, Trump has agreed with Bill O’Reilly’s assessment that the progressive movement has waged a “war” on Christmas. And it’s hard to dispute that fact.
“Christmas” itself has been sanitized out of the season, as political correctness has run amok. It’s a joy to know that we now have a leader heading back into the White House who will lead us in being proud of our roots and traditions – even as we move forward in a positive way – rather than ashamed or persecuted for them.
