As you might imagine he was mocked mercilessly over that tweet, as well he should have been.
message from the RNC:
In a holiday message sent out by the GOP, Reince Priebus, the outgoing RNC Chairman and incoming chief of staff, wished a "Merry Christmas to all!"
"Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King," the message said. "We hope Americans celebrating Christmas today will enjoy a day of festivities and a renewed closeness with family and friends."
"Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King."
Now I don't know about you but that seemed to say that not only does Donald Trump want to take ownership of the phrase "Merry Christmas," but that he would like to co-opt the entire season and make it all about him.
"Who needs that Jesus Christ dude now that you have a new savior in town?"
Spokesguy Sean Spicer was quick to correct the record.
Yeah, fuck us for simply using reading comprehension and NOT utilizing our Republican to English phrase book.Christ is the King. He was born today so we could be saved. Its sad & disappointing you are politicizing such a holy day. https://t.co/NEOkLNd1Mz— Sean Spicer (@seanspicer) December 25, 2016
So according to this guy Donald Trump is NOT trying to replace Jesus in the hearts and minds of the American people.
At least no yet, but I think we all know that is on the agenda.
