Apparently, Ivanka Trump did not get the “Merry Christmas” memo from her daddy.
President Donald Trump repeatedly panders to his conservative base by declaring that Americans will say “Merry Christmas” again. You know, because there is some kind of “war on Christmas” that has supposedly been raging on for many years now. Fox News is so obsessed with pushing the “war on Christmas” that they even think sexual assault allegations are ruining the holiday.
But rather than say “Merry Christmas,” Ivanka wished her Twitter followers “Happy Holidays” instead; a phrase that conservatives despise because they think it’s a liberal plot to destroy Christmas. Seriously.
Happy Holidays! 😘 pic.twitter.com/XLBj2zg2Ql

And so, Ivanka’s tweet caused a firestorm of conservative anger and hilarious mockery.
Your dad didn’t win the war on Christmas so you could wuss out like this.

Ivanka, you should say it like daddy does.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL THE LOSERS AND HATERS

Make sure your father won’t find out that you’re derailing his ‘Christmas and Christmas only’ crusade. I hope you’re at least boycotting Starbucks?

OMG Daddy says we can only say Merry Christmas…he is a true christian…he knows about the war we all just survived on Christmas…He couldnt take part because of bone spurs

Your daddy (he likes when you call him daddy) said we have to say Merry Christmas, not happy holidays. You need to be on script or else Bannon willattack you again.

Didn’t you get the memo there are no more holidays just Christmas

OH…MY…GOD! The “War on Christmas” is coming from INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE! THE HORROR!
— Jacki Wunderlin (@lovesanimals) December 12, 2017
Now what the hell is it? Daddy wants merry Christmas and you’re saying happy holidays. Very confusing.

The war on Christmas begins! Ivanka casts the first stone.

One really has to wonder what Donald Trump thinks about his daughter’s holiday message. Because he’s either a hypocrite or he actually believes the bullshit that comes out of his mouth enough that he will criticize Ivanka for not saying “Merry Christmas.”
Regardless, it’s entertaining to watch conservatives lose their shit over a war that isn’t real.
