Christmas became marred with criticism and hate after Democrats and the liberal media targeted the Republican National Committee due to its holiday message. According to reports, critics wrongly thought that the RNC was referring to Donald Trump as the “new King” in its Christmas message.
Earlier this week, members of the RNC celebrated Christmas by paying homage to Jesus Christ, who in the biblical context is also referred to as King.
“Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind,” the RNC stated. “Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King.”
Despite the positive of the message, the RNC became the target of social media criticisms from various liberal news agencies and networks including CNN and MSNBC. They all thought that the RNC was talking about Trump in its message.
Sean Spicer, the spokesperson for the RNC and the appointed White House press secretary for Trump’s administration, clarified that the political party’s message was solely about the notion of Christmas in the Christian context. He also noted that questioning the nature and point of the RNC’s statement is offensive.
“Christ is the King,” Spicer tweeted. “He was born today so we could be saved. It’s sad and disappointing you are politicizing such a holy day.”
The reaction by liberals to the RNC’s message clearly show that they have not yet moved on from the results of the election. Criticizing a message that was meant to inspire and remind people about the true nature of Christmas indicate that these critics are willing to create controversies and latch onto the smallest things in an attempt to humiliate and bring down the Republican Party and Trump.
