President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania spoke to children from across the country on Christmas Eve, as part of NORAD’s annual Santa tracking mission.

At one point the president asked a 7-year-old if they still believed in Santa.
“Are you still a believer in Santa? Because at seven it’s marginal, right?” Trump asked.
The president’s question sent liberals into conniption fits, with some accusing him of ruining Christmas, while others asked for him to resign.

What the actual f*** were you thinking, Mr. Trump? Resign!
As if it wasn’t bad enough that you ruined Christmas for federal employees & their families, you just had to go & ruin a child’s belief in Santa, too?#TrumpChristmasShutdown #25thAdmendment #ImpeachAndRemoveTrumpNow pic.twitter.com/3jreeJJGE9

“But angry liberals should be able to find a silver lining in all of this: At least Trump didn’t insist that Santa was white and/or a man,” notes Zero Hedge.
