President Donald Trump is being dragged all over the internet after using Christmas Eve to congratulate himself for ending the “assault” on the phrase “Merry Christmas” in a Twitter post.
“People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again'” Trump basted on Twitter. “I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our cherished and beautiful phrase. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!” he added.
Trump, who avoided service in Vietnam due to questionable “bone spurs” in his feet, is marching across the “Merry Christmas” battlefield as the sum total of his combat experience. So Twitter let him have it.
Read Trump’s tweet and some of the responses below:
People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again. I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our cherished and beautiful phrase. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Not sure where you were living before moving to the US but we've always said Merry Christmas. It wasn't a taboo saying before you got here. You made it SEEM taboo when you "decided" to bring it back.

On behalf of the Jewish and Muslim community…we don’t give a fuck either way.

You failed again. For all but your 32%, this is not a "MERRY CHRISTMAS." For the majority 68%, we will be wishing Treasons Greetings, Merry Impeachmass, and a Happy New Administration, until you are gone. pic.twitter.com/o6ChI3iRqv
