Republican Senator Uses ‘Night Before Christmas’ to Mock Obama’s Guantanamo Release Plans
Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) took on President Barack Obama‘s recently announced approval of additional prisoner transfers from Guantanamo Bay with a reworked version of the famous poem, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
Originally titled “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” Clement Clarke Moore‘s holiday poem has now become an anti-Obama screed that hopes to go viral with the hashtag #KeepThemThere.
“Twas the night before Christmas / When all through the White House / The President was transferring terrorists as a quiet as a mouse,” reads them poetic complaint. “The terrorists were nestled all snug in their well-guarded beds / While visions of resturning to al-Qaeda or ISIS danced in their heads.”

Whether or not Sen. Scott actually wrote the rewritten poem remains to be seen. Then again, considering how terrible it is, he probably did.
