During a rally in Carson City, Nevada, President Trump brought out a familiar line of attack against Democrats and Joe Biden, though it made even more sense than usual this time around.
The President told the gathered crowd that if Joe Biden won the 2020 election, the Christmas season would be "canceled."
President Trump didn't seem to acknowledge that he would, in fact, still be President this Christmas even if he lost the election.
The people cheering Trump taking credit for people saying Merry Christmas will believe anything. https://t.co/E8dxwZs7Lj— Schooley (@Schooley)1603068978.0
Fun fact: -I staffed @joebiden for nearly a decade. Every year, he threw a Christmas party for staff. Bonus fact:… https://t.co/zyTilCf7DX— Jonah Blank (@Jonah Blank)1603071465.0
As a reminder, we recently learned that Melania Trump also wanted to cancel the Christmas season.— Olivia Nuzzi (@Olivia Nuzzi)1603067123.0
Many others pointed out that Christmas gatherings are in danger thanks to a botched pandemic response more than anything else.
Christmas is basically canceled due to your awful covid response. https://t.co/1QlCXE9T4m— Aaron (@Aaron)1603069750.0
First lady Melania Trump was also recently recorded saying:
"Who gives a f*ck about Christmas stuff and decorations, but I need to do it right?"
Taking the timeline into account, it almost seems like President Trump is holding Christmas hostage so Americans will vote for him.
@atrupar Wait .... Won't Trump STILL be in office at Christmas even after Biden wins? So how will Biden be able to cancel ANYthing?— Dapple (@Dapple)1603076512.0
@atrupar Really, canceling Christmas? What exactly does that entail? A restraining order against Santa Claus?— Brent O (@Brent O)1603068762.0

Joe Biden, a practicing Catholic, celebrates Christmas every year.
@atrupar Biden is going to cancel Christmas? Here I am thinking it was already canceled due to Trump's poor handling of Covid.— #RIPGOP (@#RIPGOP)1603073537.0
Republicans have long used hypothetical "attacks" on Christmas as a boogeyman to frighten voters.
As anyone who's seen Dr. Seuss's The Grinch will tell you, no one can hurt Christmas and the holiday faces no notable discrimination in the United States.
I remember so clearly in December of 2009 when B. Hussein Obama passed legislation forbidding us from saying “Merry… https://t.co/D5EfrTRyq5— Levi Fishman (@Levi Fishman)1513904835.0
