What Would Jesus Say About Expensive Trump-Themed Christmas Hats?

What happened?

“What would Jesus do about President Donald Trump’s overpriced Christmas hats?” A Newsweek writer asked this absurd question in a recent piece, asserting that “the son of God Himself probably wouldn’t approve” of the $45 red hats decorated with Christmas lights and “Merry Christmas” on the back.

What did she say?

Christal Hayes cited some Bible verses about greed, including the well-known “the love of money is the root of all evil” passage to back up her opinion. She also threw in the bizarre argument that the Bible objects to hats, referencing some out-of-context verses in 1 Corinthians.

Glenn’s take:

“If the article was supposed to be satire, it should also be funny,” Glenn said. He had one important question: Would Jesus also disapprove of Newsweek’s ad telling people to give friends and family a subscription for Christmas?

GLENN: “The Son of God Himself wouldn’t approve.”

Newsweek writer Christal Hayes apparently has talked to Jesus about his opinion of Trump’s new Christmas themed “Make America Great Again” hats.

She is convinced He wouldn’t approve of the new holiday merch.

Why? The hat costs $45 dollars, nearly double the price of a traditional Trump hat.

"What would Jesus do about President Donald Trump's overpriced Christmas hats?" Hayes asks. She then goes on to cite several verses from Scripture denouncing greed and 1 Corinthians that says you shouldn't cover your head while praying.

If this article was supposed to satire it could be funny, but unfortunately, I think this is serious.

Tell me Newsweek, would Jesus approve of you promoting your membership options immediately following that article?

Just like Trump, you use Christmas to sell your products, too! Newsweek literally has an ad that says, “Give the Perfect Christmas Gift: A magazine subscription makes a fantastic gift that lasts an entire year.”

How much for the cheapest Newsweek subscription? Only $1.90 a week…which comes out to $99 dollars a year. More than twice the price of that Christmas Trump hat!

Hayes maybe should have looked up Matthew 7:5 while she was reading Scripture and removed the beam from her own eye before writing this nonsense.

The bottom line is that selling products, whether it’s a subscription to Newsweek or a Trump hat, to consumers so they can give their loved ones a present on Christmas is a good thing. Always.

Christmas certainly shouldn’t be all about the presents, but at the root of purchasing and giving gifts is a symbolic gesture of love. It’s a gesture that I think Jesus would be ok with.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

This Brit Has a Dire Warning for America | Douglas Murray | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 89

The state of America is worse than we realize: The Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority." But British author Douglas Murray asks, "Why should the majority remain silent?" In his latest book, "The Madness of Crowds," Murray warns that something dark has overtaken Western society. And having viewed the American Left firsthand, he now warns that we're heading down the same path as much of Europe did – and leading the rest of the world with us. He and Glenn discuss what he learned from marching with Antifa, the dangers of focusing on race and eroding masculinity, and whether it's actually time to be more like France as even President Macron warns that we've gone too far. But ultimately, Murray stresses with cautious hope that it's always possible to return to truth.

Battleground Georgia: The Radical Democrats Who Will Transform America | Glenn TV

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda. As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

So here's what you need to do: it's time mentally to prepare to stand up for freedom, which will likely take a LOT of courage from ALL of us. But, Glenn says, 'I'm not sitting down.'

Use this Thanksgiving Day to discuss with your families the grim times we potentially may face, and how together you can best articulate to others WHY America's core principles are so important to preserve.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…
