If you’ve been listening to President Trump, that might be the Christmas message you’d expect from his predecessor, President Barack Obama.
But if you paid even passing attention to history, facts, or reality, you know that the Obamas have openly and proudly displayed Christmas cheer throughout and long before the historic 44th presidency. And today was no exception (heartwarming image below).
Not convinced? Here’s just a smattering of the many times Obama wished Americans a Merry Christmas:
Trump says "we'll now be saying Merry Christmas again." Umm… right…Shared by Occupy Democrats, LIKE our page for more!

And yet, Trump, like a false prophet, continues his claim to be the savior of Christmas from Obama’s grinch-like clutches. Here is his delusional, humility-deprived Christmas tweet from yesterday:
People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again. I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our cherished and beautiful phrase. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Many see the preposterous joke for what it is, and none more so than Obama himself. So it makes sense that in his Christmas message, the former president has managed to bring joy, family, selflessness, cheer, and a strong dose of humor as he appears to be laughing not only at the children goofing off in the photo but the man who has so miserably failed to fill his shoes.
Merry Christmas to you too, Obamas. We miss you more than we can say and thank you for reminding us that sometimes, you have to laugh to keep from crying:
On behalf of the Obama family, Merry Christmas! We wish you joy and peace this holiday season. pic.twitter.com/CNFUZrhrBj
