Here's a direct quote from the two leaders of the current republican party in a communique meant to go out to the entire nation:
“Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King. We hope Americans celebrating Christmas today will enjoy a day of festivities and a renewed closeness with family and friends.”

Do you notice anything at all wrong with this statement? This well-vetted letter to the nation? "This Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King." Not only is the party comparing Donald Trump to an incoming king they are directly comparing him with Jesus Christ. How important is this to consider on Christmas? Just how far are things going to go off the rails even before Trump becomes president?
