President Obama Leaves Christ Out of Christmas

This year, the ABC network television special “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (which first aired on CBS) turns 50, and ABC had a party to celebrate. When it was Obama’s turn to speak, he explained Christmas by saying -- and I quote -- “tiny trees just need a little love, and that on this holiday, we celebrate peace on earth and goodwill to all.”

Good Grief! Even Christmas is about the environment? Is nothing sacred from politicking? Granted, conservatives sometimes go overboard when it comes to the “War on Christmas” -- with the non-scandal of Starbucks’ Christmas cups as an egregious example. What Donald Trump was thinking by giving it legitimacy, no one knows. But this statement by Obama -- this really is a travesty.

Obama’s Statement

Here is Obama’s full statement, in case a patriotic American hoped that our president did not just remove Jesus Christ from the “true meaning of Christmas”:

President Barack Obama: “Hi, everybody! We’ll be brief because we know that adults all sound like “wa, wa, wa, wa, wa,” especially here in Washington.”

First Lady Michelle Obama: “Good Grief!”

Obama: “But, we want to wish a happy 50th Anniversary to one of our country’s most beloved traditions, 'A Charlie Brown Christmas.'”

Michelle: “For half a century, people of all ages have gathered around the TV to watch Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, and the rest of the gang, teach us the true meaning of Christmas.” (HERE IT COMES, FOLKS)

Obama: “They teach us that tiny trees just need a little love, and that on this holiday, we celebrate peace on earth and goodwill toward all.”

Michelle: “Because, as Linus knows, that’s what Christmas is all about.”

The Charlie Brown Version

Oh really, Miss First Lady, Linus would beg to differ. Here he is, on the first Christmas Special, telling Charlie Brown what Christmas is all about:
