New York magazine: 'Donald Trump hates Christmas parties'

You’ll never believe this. Donald Trump — devout Christian, tenderhearted philanthropist, and devoted public servant and family man — was only pretending to love Christmas.

I’m shocked, shocked, I say.

Despite his ham-handed efforts to appear as the eternal defender of Christianity and its most festive of holidays, Donald Trump is about as Christmasy as a fart in an elf hat.

And here’s the sad, sad proof.

New York magazine:

While [Trump] is known to enjoy hosting large social events and rallies, current and former White House staffers say he regards presidential Christmas parties with a special loathing and goes out of his way to escape early. Making Christmas great again may have been a pillar of his presidential campaign — “We’re going to start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again,” he often promised — but the war on Christmas is now raging inside of him.

One person close to the White House told me, “it makes perfect sense” that Trump hates the entire production surrounding Christmas, “because it’s not about him!” This person added, “If it were about him, he’d love it. Christmas is not about him.”

And, of course, Trump has found the true meaning of Christmas: humiliating your underlings:



While shaking hands with guests and standing for photos at another party last year, Trump spotted Mike Pence in the crowd. According to a second White House official, he forced the vice-president to take his place. “He and Melania left and subbed in the vice-president for the photo line,” the second official said.

So there you have it. Another lie.

Hope you have a very merry Christmas … and a Trumpless new year.
