Trump Says Everyone Should Say ‘Merry Christmas,’ Forgets His Own ‘Happy Holidays’ History

Donald Trump today declared he wants to see more “Merry Christmas” and less “Happy Holidays.” He said he loves Christmas and doesn’t want to spend money at places that say “Happy Holidays” and promised that if he’s president, everyone will say “Merry Christmas.”

Guess how long it took for people to discover some hypocrisy on Trump’s part.

First, here’s the video of Trump’s comments:

Now, back in 2012 Trump tweeted about this subject too:

But…

He also shared what others tweeted at him without correcting them:

Right Wing Watch flagged a Trump Hotel “Happy Holidays” message posted to Tumblr last year:

There’s also this 2010 holiday message from Trump International Hotel & Tower general manager Suzie Mills, in which the word “holiday” is typed and spoken but not the word “Christmas.”

I mean, I suppose we could just not care whether someone says “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas” if they mean either with polite and/or sincere wishes, but that would mean putting aside our differences and coming together in unity, which is clearly not what the Christmas season is all about.
