Opponents to President-elect Donald Trump still haven’t been able to come to grips with the fact that he will indeed be the next president of the United States.
Critics are lashing out at the RNC for allegedly comparing Trump to Jesus in a Christmas email sent out by the RNC. Here’s what it reads:
“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.”
The RNC holds this message was simply encouraging people today, just as Christians do every year, to celebrate the fact that Jesus came down to earth as a baby King.
While it (admittedly) wasn’t written particularly well, people on both sides seem to agree this was not an attempt to compare Trump to Jesus.
