Nancy Pelosi corrected herself for saying the word “Christmas”, saying “holiday” instead. The Free Beacon reports:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) corrected herself at a press conference outside the White House on Tuesday, saying “holiday present” after initially using the phrase “Christmas present.”
“Should, unfortunately, the president choose to shut down the government, so that we have a Trump shut down as a Christmas present, a holiday present, to the American people, I told the president that the new House of Representatives when it convenes will pass what Mr. Schumer suggested here,” Pelosi said.
Her comments came after a contentious and public meeting between President Donald Trump, Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), and Vice President Mike Pence, in which the four negotiated terms of a spending bill to avoid a government shutdown.
A survey by the Public Religion Research Institute in 2016 found two-thirds of Democrats prefer stores and businesses to say “Seasons Greetings” or “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas,” while about the same percentage of Republicans, 67 percent, had the opposite view. Independents were split, a slight plurality favoring “Merry Christmas.”
Changing the word “Christmas” for “holidays” is often imagined as a joke against politically correctness, something that never happens. But Nancy Pelosi proved that erasing the word “Christmas” it is at the very core of the Democrat agenda.
Then , they don’t have to take time off at this particular holiday, as it’s sole purpose is to recognize Jesus’ birth, and since they obviously don’t believe in him. they (democrats,) can continue to work (if it can be called that) and go through the season as if it were any normal time of the year.!
It is Christmas and always has been and always should be. Without Christ there is no Christmas. Merry Christmas for hundreds of years and now Dems want Happy Holidays which has no meaning what so ever. What happened to free speech? Good grief do the Dems have to sabotage everything?
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE OR WHAT YOU MAY BELIEVE IT IS CHRISTMAS TIME NOT HOLIDAY TIME WHICH SOUNDS RIDICULOUS.
I WISH EVERYONE MERRY CHRISTMAS AT EVERY SHOPPING TRIP I MAKE AND i’M TOLD BY CASHIER THAT THEY CAN’T SAY THAT SO I SAY IT LOUD AND CLEAR FOR THEM.
