Representative Ocasio-Cortez just upstaged Trump with her holiday message

If the mark of true narcissism is transforming everything you encounter into a narrative about yourself, President Trump managed to do that with Christmas. From his deflation of a 7-year-old’s dreams of Santa Claus to his sely-pitying tweets to his Christmas morning litany of complaints, Trump ignored the spirit of love and giving that the holiday embodies.

Incoming Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), on the other hand, spent part of her Christmas morning tweeting a message that emphasizes not only the values of love and redemption that the holiday celebration is meant to reflect but of the inclusiveness that is intrinsic to the message of the Christian tradition that the birth of Jesus heralded.

Ocasio-Cortez’s reference to “refugee babies in mangers + their parents” reminds the world that despite the joyful celebrations bringing families together for abundant holiday dinners and bountiful gifts, there are still asylum-seeking immigrants spending their Christmases locked up in federal detention centers.

The youngest member of the new Congress made certain to propagate the concept that the message of love that the Christmas holiday is meant to inspire applies to everyone, regardless of race, color, ethnicity, creed, or immigration status.

Contrast Ocasio-Cortez’s loving, progressive positivity to the vitriolic and resentful words emanating from the White House as you celebrate your holiday and decide which vision of the future you’d rather see come to fruition in the new year — the golden rule being  espoused by the New York Congresswoman or the bilious and venal xenophobia that President Trump is attempting to foist upon the nation.

It doesn’t take much thought to understand which of these messages embodies the true meaning of Christmas.
