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 New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars." Glenn asks Don Jr. how President Trump is handling the impeachment, what happens to the conservative movement going forward, and whether it will be led by a Trump.

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."

Democrats are using the GameStop, Reddit saga to CRUSH the underdog

Glenn explains how — despite what Democrats will tell the public — they care NOTHING for the little guy...all they want is control, and the GameStop & Reddit saga is showing us how much control they want. Because right now they're doing everything they can to CRUSH the underdog. Glenn says that when the government gets heavily involved in the stock market & when you can only invest in a company (like GameStop) from the stock exchange in MEXICO, it means we no longer have a free market here in America anymore...
