The Presidential Holiday Tweetstorm Has Begun

I have bad news, boys and girls: the president is all alone in the White House. You know what that means, don’t you? A presidential tweetstorm!

America is respected again! The Fed can’t putt! The Wall will be built with Shutdown money! Trump is all alone!

Ah well, some people just don’t handle the holiday season well. But it’s all worth it because it’s no longer illegal to say “Merry Christmas,” amirite?

Coming up next: a Very Special Episode of Lunchtime Photo. I’ll just tell everyone up front that it’s not likely to make much sense to you. But that’s OK. Just enjoy the holidays anyway. Tomorrow I shall try to have a more traditionally themed Christmas photo.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
