President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump unveiled their first Christmas card Monday – yes, I said; “Christmas,” so start triggering before the holiday rush you anti-Christmas, anti-Christian, anti-American snowflakes out there in liberal land.
But the Obama’s always issued a Christmas card and there never seemed to be a peep out of anybody on the left that he was mixing politics and religion. No talk of separation of church and State when the Obama’s greeted the country on Christmas.
But then again, Barack Obama is a Christian – isn’t he? I keep hearing that and he says he’s a Christian and he’s been saying it even since he decided to run for office in Illinois way back when. Before that? Ummm, not so much and the “Christian” church they attended and brought their two beautiful daughters to every Sunday for 12 years?
Yeah, like going to a KKK rally for black Chicagoans – you’ve seen the videos, you don’t need to be told that the Reverend Jeremiah Wright was about as lousy a Christian as you can get. A bigoted, anti-American, anti-Semitic, hateful man screaming vitriol against America and the white man every Sunday and the little Obama kids sitting there soaking it up…
What does that say about Barack and Michelle’s parenting skills? What if President Trump and First Lady Melania were caught taking their precious children to a bigoted, hate-filled church every Sunday? That would be front-page news everyday at the WashingtonPostCNNHuffingtonPostNBCABCMSNBCNYTimesESPNPBSCBS club, wouldn’t it?
But back to the headline – the President and First Lady have issued their first Christmas card and it bears pointing out one HUGE difference between it and the Obama’s offering. Here’s the Trump’s:

“Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,” the card states as you can see, followed by signatures from Donald Trump, the first lady and their 11-year-old son Barron. Cool. I’m diggin’ it. Simple, straightforward, no politics, just wishing you the best….
Now the Obama’s, since they were in office 8 years (sorry for reminding you) had 8 Christmas cards they offered to the American public and I want you to stop reading just for a second and take a giant guess what word was missing from all 8 cards from this Christian Barack Obama and family?
Maybe they left out the word ‘merry’ or ‘happy’? Perhaps they didn’t think about the New Year coming up? Can’t blame them – after all, every new year meant more bad news for the economy, more food stamps, more lies about ObamaCare, more deficits, less people looking for jobs, etc…
Go ahead, hum the theme song from; ‘Final Jeopardy’ if you want, but I bet you don’t get any further from the first; ‘Da-dad dum, da da da dum’ before it’s hits you like rock at a stoning, that in fact that word missing EVERY EIGHT TIMES was indeed the word; “Christmas.”
You win a Christmas cookie if you guessed that EVERY FRICKIN’ CHRISTMAS CARD FROM THE WONDERFUL AND SELF-DESCRIBED CHRISTIAN PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, EVERY SINGLE TORTUOUS YEAR THAT FAILURE OF A MAN WAS IN OFFICE, WAS MISSING THE WORD “CHRISTMAS!’

“Happy Holidays,” headlined the Obama’s 2016 card: “As our family reflects on our many happy years spent in the White House, we are grateful for the friends we’ve made, the joy we’ve shared, and the gifts of kindness we’ve received. We wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and a wonderful new year.”
Sarah Palin chimed in immediately – don’t you love her?
"Merry Christ… er… scratch that. "We Are the Obamas and It's Some Random Holiday!" https://t.co/lyXGK4woql

I could sit here and bore you with the other 7 cards, but do you really care? Here’s what’s important: Donald Trump has pledged repeatedly during and after his election victory to bring Chrismas back to the White House. Here he is at a speech at the Values Voter Summit:
Also, courtesy of Melania’s Christmas decor is an 18-by-6-foot tree from Wisconsin in it’s traditional spot in the Blue Room, decorated with ornaments bearing the seals of every state and U.S. territory. A separate tree near the East Wing entrance is dedicated to families that lost loved ones in the military. Nice. When was the last time you saw the Obama’s do anything except slight the military?
There’s a 350-pound gingerbread house in the State Dining Room, wreaths on every window and a U.S. flag flying from its sugary rooftop. Damn straight..
Well, I would be remiss if I didn’t also wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy eight days of Chanukah and yes, Merry Kwanza if that’s when your family gets together, opens gifts and over-eats. Go for it, I’m with you.
