Trump Fails To ‘Bring Christmas Back’ As Almost Nobody Shows Up For His Tree Lighting

Donald Trump claims he has brought Christmas back to the White House, but it was clear on Thursday night that nobody else got the memo. In fact, if anything, the holiday spirit in Washington is at an all-time low in the Trump era.

This was quite apparent during the president’s first official tree lighting as rows and rows of seats stood empty for the annual holiday event.

As Shareblue Senior Writer Oliver Willis noted on Twitter, there is something of a pattern that has developed when it comes to Trump’s events: a lack of people.

Ultimately, Trump’s claim that there is a war on Christmas has always been a phony one. Each time he says that Christmas has been removed from our national vocabulary, particularly by the previous president, he is lying.

During his time in the White House, President Obama repeatedly uttered the phrase, “Merry Christmas” throughout the holiday season. This was well-documented by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes this week:

But even if we take Donald Trump at his word and play along with his fantasy that there is a war on Christmas, Thursday demonstrated quite perfectly that Donald Trump is losing it.
