Pro-Trump Super PAC Ad: “Thank You President Trump For Letting Us Say Merry Christmas Again” [VIDEO]

Think Progress reports:

A pro-Trump nonprofit says it is spending $1 million to air a new pro-Trump ad that concludes with a little girl saying, “Thank you President Trump for letting us say ‘Merry Christmas’ again!”

America First Policies — a group including Trump’s digital and data director Brad Parscale, freshly-indicted former deputy campaign manager Rick Gates, and former Mike Pence campaign advisers — says the “ad blitz” will begin on Christmas day.

      As Pratchett wrote, winter celebrations are always, in some sense, red and white. They all come down to blood on the snow.

          And let us not forget Grandma and that unfortunate reindeer incident.

          Uncle Mark, you just made my day (except I think I peed a little). Thank you!

        Wait, I thought we were making the apparel gay!

            And a Merry Festivus to all!

        • Ted.OR

          Gay apparel, that’s only for Don.

      • PlutoAnimus

        I assume ‘yuletide’ is some sort of jizz reference.

      • Ted.OR

        Make the Yuletide Gay!

      Thank you President Trump for letting us say ‘Merry Christmas’ again!

      They’re so bad at their fake war that they can’t keep their fake facts straight. They were never mad because they were being stopped from saying Merry Christmas. They were mad because they couldn’t make everyone else say Merry Christmas.

    The earlier you teach kids that lying for Jesus is okay, the less fancy edumacation you have to give ’em.

    I’ve always disagreed with using kids as political props, but in reality, our political policies should always put them first….in the next 20 years, they’ll realize how badly we’ve failed them.

        They pretend that they are being oppressed when they can’t force their religion onto others. This is typical bullying behavior. Bullies need to scream that they are being bullied if they face any consequences for their choice to bully others.

    Oh, and quit using kids as a political prop for your nonexistent War On Christmas!

    • Boreal

      They changed the date to coincide with the ancient pagan celebrations in order to convert more sheeple to xtianity.

    • Boreal

      Just last week I was beaten soundly by hooligans in the street as I called out ‘Merry Christmas.’ The thrashing left me sore and unable to move.*

      * like the bible, Fox news and the xmas story, the above is fiction.

    • One year at Christmas, I had bronchitis, and I couldn’t say “Merry Christmas.” The struggle is real.

      • Boreal

        Yet you can speak again, proof of jeebus’ miraculous powers™.

    • Uncle Mark

      I’ve had fun asking people (friends & family) that question, when they’ve praised their Orange Messiah for being able to say “Merry Christmas.” Of course they can’t cite one instance where they were silenced…the closest being when someone was working in retail, and they were dissuaded from uttering that to customers…only because not everyone is Christian.

      • JAKvirginia

        Everyone not Christian?!!! Is this, like, true?

      • JAKvirginia

        In a way, I feel sorry for her. She’s in a store, the TV aisle and up pops the commercial. She smiles at how well she delivered her line. Then behind her, a disgruntled shopper says “Fuck of, bitch!” to the screen. Poor kid. That will scar you for life.

    • Ted.OR

      Hubby and I have had our share of store clerks who were obnoxious about pushing “Merry Christmas”. We came up with a plan this year — whenever we had such an encounter, we decided we would reply, “¡Gracias! ¡And a Feliz Navidad to you!” So… Would they be glad that we said Merry Christmas, or pissed that we said it in Spanish?

      Unfortunately the situation never came up, so we didn’t get to test it out.

    Greaaaat, we can say “Merry Christmas,” like I’ve always been able to say in my 50 years of existence. Unfortunately, Dear Leader has made it impossible for a number of us in gov’t to say “1. Science-based. 2. Evidence-based. 3. Entitlement. 4. Vulnerable. 5. Diversity. 6. Transgender. 7. Fetus.” If he was a smarter leader, one would think he would ban the use of the words “collusion, treason, emoluments, shitgibbon, man-baby, dotard, & guilty.”

      Yeah, I know I’m a jerk. Christmas shouldn’t be in the visual center. The Real Reason for the Season is the Winter Solstice. It should be large, and center. There are plenty of other religious or other beliefs not shown, some long gone, some still existing, that predate the ones shown.

      It all centers around physical reality….turned into superstition. If you disagree, I don’t care.

  • Steve Smith

    Say thank you to Trump for making it even more tempting to smack an evangelical in the face with a baseball bat.

  • HaHaHa

    Buffoons

  • Tom Furgas

    Of course, no one was ever prohibited from saying “Merry Christmas”. The reason for the increased usage of “Happy Holidays”, “Seasons Greetings” and the like was to be able to include those who do not celebrate Christmas; Muslims, Jews, Hindus, et. al. Not a matter of exclusion but of inclusion. So, of course, the right-wingers pounced on this and declared it an expression of hatred of Christians, and Christmas. Typical mind-manipulation of the peasants and rednecks to vote against them liberals; Commies, Fags, and Junkies. The right-wingers have been exploiting this kind of thing for many decades, if not for centuries. Our old gay buddy Ken Mehlman exploited homophobia to get his man Dubya elected. Shameful and hateful. As I always say; To Hell with Mehl.

  • Hank
  • Gerry Fisher

    If the Democrats had any intestinal fortitude (and money), they’d run a clip of Obama saying “Merry Christmas” a few dozen times over the years.

  • Clive Johnson

    This is all quite amazing to me.

    1. There’s the low IQ/non-thought appeal of the ad.
    2. The ad exemplifies to an extreme, the idea that right-wing politics amounts to nothing more than a series of distractions that provide cover for monied interests to gain greater power.
    3. I thought that the slightly more informed of Trump’s supporters would just shrug off his ‘We’ll be saying Merry Christmas’ again nonsense. Instead, like good authoritarian followers, they take this nonsense issue, this problem without substance, and turn it into a proud Trumpian accomplishment.

    Which in turn makes me think that the outlines of an overtly authoritarian/fascist movement are coming into focus. I wonder if this is just the early stage of an increasing number of absurdities, urban legends, conspiracy theories, lies, laughable stupidities that will be coming. It makes me think of a book I read several years ago:

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/febf4c98adac130c3cb42591fc797f5dbbbabe090c233bdf73d6fe9403c1d49e.jpg

    A US student from Wisconsin visits Germany in the early days of the Nazi takeover and records a great many details of what that looks like on a day-to-day basis. Everywhere she went there were inanities to be found in newspapers, in ads, things overheard. Abuses of language, dumbass anti-Semitic notions of all kinds–what she observed was either a kind of breakdown in intellectual standards, or, more likely a political party mindless and extreme enough to give expression to widespread ignorance and amplify it.

    Before our eyes the conservative movement is warping into an ugly beast, or an even uglier one, its worst impulses unsheathed and sharpened to a point.

    • Michael White

      This is why it is so frightening. We are watching our nation slip into fascism and it is fully supported by a mainstream political party. There are so many similarities.

    • They are SERIOUS about this and have been for years. I remember one year flying in from NYC back to Texas. On the ride from the airport one of my family members was going off on how “they” were banning nativity scenes! On the way we drove past their church. NO NATIVITY SCENE. They wanted the city to put one up but not their own fucking church. That’s the mentality of that crowd. So yes, they are stupid enough to think that Obama kept people from saying Merry Christmas but now Trump has made it legal again. Yes, they really are that stupid.

      • Clive Johnson

        Wow. Did you dare bring up how their church didn’t have a nativity scene?

        • Of course I did. In one ear and out the other. A year or two later one of them got a little styrofoam nativity scene (the one that we joke looks like two dinosaurs are about to eat the baby Jesus) and ranted about how no one better dare make him take it down. Of course no one did. Who would? No one cares. They notice it and move on just like they do all the other holiday decorations. It’s his property he can do what he wants (within reason and this was well inside anyone’s idea of reasonable). But thanks to Bill O’Reilly and others they all have a persecution complex that people are out to take their Christmas away from them. Nevermind that plenty of atheists (me included) celebrate Christmas. We need a mid-winter holiday anyway so why not keep the one we already have. You don’t have to do the religious part if you don’t want to. Even a lot of religious people hardly bother with the religious part. I remember as a kid one year when Christmas fell on Sunday we had to debate whether or not we were going to have church services. ON CHRISTMAS. (This was a somewhat rural Southern Baptist church.) And they worry about the government? Seriously?

          Anyway, time to head back for another round of Christmas Even moneymaking merrymaking.

          • Clive Johnson

            Cheers and happy holidays to you!

        How fitting!

    • Treant

      It’s easy to understand and cuts to the heart of the “politically correct” backlash thing they have going on.

      I had a co-worker who would repeat “Merry Christmas” until you said it back to him. I spent ten minutes cycling through holidays once before he got fed up and left.

      • No More GOP.

        Your co-worker was aggressive to say the least. I would have said “Thank you” the first time, but after that it would something llie “I truly hate your holiday with the burning intensity of a thousand suns. Merry Wintersolsticemas!”

        • Treant

          Yep. He went to a “Christian” grammar, middle, and high school and then went to a normal college where he encountered diversity and hated every second of it.

          He was a useless piece of crap, for the most part.

      • Ted.OR

        A couple of years ago, while checking out at the grocery store, hubs and I had a particularly loud and obnoxious right-wing nutjob clerk. He finished with a big “Merry Christmas”, obviously expecting a reaction from us. Would we say “Oh, that’s so great to hear”, or would we say “So, you’re just assuming that we celebrate Christmas”?

        Instead, as we left, I just blurted out, “You too”. No emotion, no intonation, half a second, no vocal modulation. Most un-enthusiastic.

        He didn’t know what to think.

        • Octoberfurst

          Your last sentence is probably the story of his life.

    • Chuck in NYC

      I wonder how much they’re wasting on these ads instead of spending it on, oh, say, food banks. Probably going mostly to Sinclair stations anyway.

  • Treant

    It’s interesting to note that even their “pure, innocent” children are extremely annoying. I’ll feel so much better when supporting a Democrat who brutally votes for evils such as child health care, rights for everybody, and a balanced budget. That little bitch can suffer while we make a world she and her children can live in.

  • Michael White

    Can they get anymore desperate to try and say the orange turd has done anything?

    • Clive Johnson

      The timing on this ad is quite interesting, coming as it does when the tax scam bill is passed. Distract the rubes–it’s apparently quite easy to do.

      • Chucktech

        You notice his little rubes aren’t curious as to why Donnie hasn’t signed it yet. He won’t sign it until after New Years. Why is that, Donnie?

        (Hint: Because it will cause immediate slashing of Medicare and and other government spending on Jan 1 because of PAYGO. (Google it) Republican swine will have the rest of 2018 to fix it if he waits until after New Years. If they don’t, those drastic spending cuts happen Jan 1, 2019.)

    I love how ads like these are intentionally designed for two audiences, and to elicit two very different reactions.

    Don’t you get it ?

    You’re SUPPOSED to be outraged.

    Your reactions to this are planned, contrived, you’ve been herded like cattle.

    This is what the media IS now. Any claims media exists to educate or inform are lies.

    Actually, this ad is somewhat encouraging because it is all nonsense designed solely to shore up support, not increase it. It is frustratingly stupid, though, but that is what it is designed to be.

        I cannot disagree with that, especially with the little girl zinger at the end. Yes, it is trolling. They want their enemies to attack the little girl.

        • leastyebejudged

          Exactly.

          So contrived. And not even remotely original.

          They WANT us to react with outrage. And they WANT us to respond in kind.

          The media IS a parasite.

      Hmmmm.

      The singer, not the song. The spirit of the singer.

        wow.

        • TuuxKabin

          Yeah, I know. Something, prolly Sister Mary Power Hungry Bitch, in catlick school liked it so much she made the entire school sing it at the children’s’ mass on Christmas Eve, brings the feeling ’round, this time of the year.

      Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Because why listen to Christmas carols when you can listen to heavy metal covers of Christmas carols?!

      • Paula

        I saw them last x-mas. It was a good show.

    • Michael B

      You never saw Meet Me in St. Louis?…i…uh…I dont know what to say to that

  • Paula

    So when was this ban on saying Merry x-mas? I don’t recall it. Maybe it was during the time I served with the Imperial Battalions in the Kessel sector. I finally let my union membership in the Dark Side Employees Union lapse.

    Thank you President Trump for giving me even more reasons to say Fuck You.

  • Charlie

    I’d like to know WHO is stopping these people from saying Merry Christmas. Just doesn’t make sense and it’s nothing more that claiming to be some type of victim. People are free to say whatever they want AND people should not be criticized for NOT saying MC. That’s the point…hateful Christians want everyone to be like them including people who are not Christian. They just don’t get it. All that money wasted on whining about being victimized. Wouldn’t that money be better spent HELPING people who are homeless and hungry???

    • paganguy

      I’d suspect it’s their conscience, if I thought they actually had one.

  • teedofftaxpayer

    And the right wing dipshits actually believes this crap.

  • joe ho

    The GOP is better at politics than the DNC. The GOP understands how stupid and gullible the American electorate is. Democratic pols overestimate the voters’ intelligence. Which is why the Dems have trouble getting into power and holding on to it.

    • shivadog

      Sad but true.

      • joe ho

        Sadder still is that Dems have been told what they’re doing wrong and yet they cannot self-correct.

  • andrew

    Please Mr. Trump your next bold initiative has to be “letting us say” God Bless You again when people sneeze.

    • coram nobis

      Is that better than “Eww, not on me!” ?

  • WhitewaterDave

    Yesterday I blurted out “Happy… Everything!” to my cashier at the hardware store. An hour later at the grocery store the cashier there said the same thing to me. We had a good laugh, and I decided that will be my new greeting this time of year.

  • DrRobY

    Thank you President Trump for making me reflect once again on your disasterous first year in office with this voting. Your destructive presidency serves as a beacon for everyone to reflect on the effects of protest voting.

  • thatotherjean

    Dear Child: Your parents have been lying to you. You could always say “Merry Christmas!” to anyone you wanted to. You still can. Nothing has changed about that, despite what they told you. Don’t believe everything the grown-ups say–especially if their last name is Trump.

    • clay

      Dear Child: Your parents have been lying to you. Santa’s not real. Nothing has changed about that, despite what they told you.

      • thatotherjean

        If they lie to you about that, they’ll lie about other stuff, too.

      • coram nobis

        Dear Child: Donald is not Santa. He may have the Santa build, but he’s not jolly to the West Wing elves and no fake beard is going to make him give any presents except to the top tax bracket. You’re just a deduction, kid.

  • MusicBear88

    I just did my errands, pharmacy and two grocery stores. Two “Happy Holidays” (pharmacy, local chain grocery), a “Merry Christmas,” (customer service at the grocery store when I returned my bottles) and “thanks, have a great day.” (Trader Joe’s).

    • Slim Compersion

      I’ll be reporting the non-compliers to the Justice Department.

  • That child doesn’t look right. The inbreeding amongst RWNJs must be staggering.

  • witch

    News flash Kid, nothing is stopping you from saying MC…..I don’t have to say it back!

  • Wesinoregon

    I wonder who we contact about those who don’t say Merry Christmas so they can be punished?

  • Megrim Twist

    Is that Barron in a wig?

  • ChuckinTucson

    Thank goodness this girl has made this video. Just two years ago she was arrested for saying “Merry Christmas” at a local Toys R Us and has been serving time in a juvenile detention center since then until pardoned by President Trump — and just in time for Christmas.

    • Blueflash

      It’s a miracle that the poor girl survived the ordeal as a persecuted Christian.

    • Slim Compersion

      She really is taking quite a chance by coming out publicly as a Christian.

      For her safety’s sake, we can only hope she’s armed.

  • Scout

    Anyone who needs 45’s “permission” to say or not say “Merry Christmas” should just immediately move to Russia where they will be much more comfortable.

  • Blueflash

    Job only half done, I’m afraid. Dear pussy-grabbing Christian Leader still has to make it a crime to say Happy Pagan Solstice.

  • Pip

    Is that child drugged?

  • MrFitzroyOBE

    They couldn’t have found an attractive child for the advertisement? This one looks like a refugee from a Stephen King movie…..Will taxpayers be on the hook for her therapy later in life when she realizes she has been used and abused by her trusted authority figures?

  • GanymedeRenard

    When was the phrase ‘merry Christmas’ officially banned, young lady? Gee, your parents must be super informed.

  • I’m 55 years old and no one has ever stopped me from saying Merry Christmas ever. This is complete nonsense and sadly half of our country is moronic enough to believe it. We are all fucked.

    • Slim Compersion

      Trump, ever the master showman, knows what his audience wants to hear. And the love him for it – no thinking required.

  • DaveMiller135

    The idea that social pressure from, well — me, prevented Born Agains from saying “Merry Christmas,” is both embarrassing (for them) and encouraging (for me). Are they admitting to being that weak willed? OTOH, I got some side-eye with our current tax “reform” dead in its sights.

  • Slim Compersion

    Worst part is? The Trumpkins will absolutely eat it up: “After eight years of Obummer forbidding us to say ‘Merry Christmas’ because it goes against Sharia Law – wouldn’t want to offend any Moslems, see – thank baby Jesus Trump is making Christmas American again! Just goes to show he’s a Godly man!” Trump knows his audience.

    That’s 2017’s stupidity in a nutshell.

  • Nowhereman

    FFS! Nobody was ever prohibited from saying Merry Fucking Christmas. And this bullshit is one of the many reasons that Christmas is my least favorite day of the year.

    Xmas can go fuck it’s self in it’s Xmas ass. A day and a half left having to help miserable, unhappy, nasty, rude and so unchristian shoppers. Hate every last inch of this holiday now and don’t miss celebrating it.

  • Lynn

    Since when haven’t we been able to say ‘Merry Christmas’? President Obama said ‘Merry Christmas’. The war on saying ‘Merry Christmas’ is fake news invented by Trump. Do your research, people. Google it. At no time have we been unable to say ‘Merry Christmas’. This is sickening that money would be used, and a child used, to create this ad.
