Christian commentator Matt Couch falsely claimed that people did not say “Merry Christmas” while President Obama was in office, but are now saying “Merry Christmas” because of President Donald Trump, notes the Friendly Atheist:
President Trump is a chosen man. And if you don’t believe that, you just don’t understand how things are working out in this country, in this world. You don’t have to like him, but unfortunately for you, facts matter. Facts unfortunately matter.
People say “Merry Christmas” now when you go through the drive-thru. That didn’t happen eight years ago, folks. And, once again, if you say it did, you’re a liar. I’m sorry. I hate to be that mean. But if anyone tries to tell me that, eight years ago, when Barack Hussein Obama was in the middle of his eight-year run, if any of you really think that people were saying “Merry Christmas,” hell no, they weren’t. They were not!
And I’ve noticed the last two years, it doesn’t matter if I go through an Arby’s or a Chick-fil-A. People are saying “Merry Christmas.” They weren’t doing that four or five years ago. President Trump has brought that back.
