Scott Walker Ridiculed For “Christmas Tree” Meltdown

CBS News reports:

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has gone back to calling the evergreen on display at the state Capitol a holiday tree, reversing his predecessor who declared it a Christmas tree. Former Governor Scott Walker made his displeasure known on Twitter.

In 2007 the Republican-controlled state Assembly passed a resolution to call the tree a Christmas tree, but it died in the Democratic-controlled Senate. Walker, the son of a Baptist minister, declared the tree a Christmas tree when he took office in 2011. Twitter users on Friday were quick to point out that Walker did not seem particularly familiar with Jewish customs.

Evers, a Democrat, called the tree a holiday tree on Friday. He announced the tree’s theme will be “Celebrate Science” and asked schoolchildren to submit science-related ornaments to adorn the tree.
