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.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
