Pre-Election Video of Trump Saying “Christmas Will Be Canceled” if Biden Wins Resurfaces
A pre-election video of Donald Trump on the campaign trail falsely claiming Christmas will be “canceled” if Joe Biden wins the White House is going viral again. But this time many are saying Trump and his Republican cohorts are the ones who canceled Christmas after the President refused to sign the COVID relief bill and GOP lawmakers refused to support more money for Americans desperate for help.
Every accusation is a confession with Trump, who is a master at projection language and distraction, especially when he has an audience hungry for all the red meat he can still manage to throw at him. The video, posted by Vox’s Aaron Rupar, first went viral in October and was filmed at a Trump rally in Carson City, Nevada. The insinuation is that Biden would be responsible for more COVID19 restrictions keeping people from celebrating the holidays, ignoring the fact that he would still be in office for that.
“If he comes in, Carson City will become a ghost town,” Trump lies to the crowd, “and the Christmas season will be canceled.”
Of course, pretty much nothing can cancel Christmas from coming, not even stealing everything from the Whos, which in real life translates to trying to take away Americans’ healthcare in the middle of a pandemic. Except Trump’s Whos don’t care that he’s spending his Christmas on a private golf course in Palm Beach while they’re trying to pay rent and face possible evictions on January 31st.
Thankfully, Twitter has a long memory and was able to clap back at Trump loud and clear all Christmas Day long.
Merry Christmas. We made it. https://t.co/mi5YctLvmh

Even the President-Elect was able to send a Christmas message on Twitter, while Trump was once again golfing.
