For all of the Trump Administration’s blathering about the War on Christmas, I can’t help but think the war is coming from inside the house. And by house, I mean the White House, a magical place filled with unlit blood trees and a president who suggests to small children that Santa might not be real.

Donald Trump, a man who has fathered several children but seems to have met very few, did just that on Christmas Eve, while fielding calls from kids watching Santa crisscross the Earth on NORAD’s Santa Tracker. (Despite reports, it appears Trump was not “all alone” in the White House on Christmas.)

Indeed, a seven-year-old named Coleman will probably have some questions for his parents after chatting with the president, who asked him if he was “still a believer in Santa, because at seven, it’s marginal, right?”
