On Thursday, ABC’s highly liberal show “The View” claimed that the “war on Christmas” is not real, and said that the only place it exists is in President Donald Trump’s mind.
"The View," which previously bleeped out Jesus' name twice on their show, brought up the topic because Ivanka Trump tweeted “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas,” something that the co-hosts of the show seem to believe is scandalous:
“[Trump] insisted to his supporters that Americans would be saying Merry Christmas again, despite the fact that nobody ever stopped saying Merry Christmas,” Whoopi Goldberg began. “So I wonder what he thinks about his daughter's tweet wishing everyone ‘Happy Holidays.’”
Co-host Meghan McCain also cast doubt on the “War on Christmas,” saying that she thinks it’s not as serious as people make it out to be.
“I don't interject myself into the War on Christmas because I think it's gravely overblown,” McCain said. “I've never said ‘Merry Christmas’ to anyone ever and they've been offended. I don’t think that’s something that exists.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin said she didn’t “understand the War on Christmas thing.”
Goldberg doubled down on her previous statement by claiming: “There is no war, that's the thing.”
Co-host Joy Behar made probably the most asinine comment when she blamed Fox News for the “War on Christmas” because Christians are “victims.”
“It seems like Fox News likes to push this because they're very — they’re victims, like I'm a Christian and I'm a victim,” Behar said.
A 2017 report from the Center for Studies on New Religions stated that Christians were the most persecuted religious group in the world in 2016 with more than 90,000 Christians being murdered for their faith around the globe, Fox News reported.
