In a tweet, since deleted, Democratic Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel claimed her son was “devastated” the first time somebody wished him and his mother a “Merry Christmas.”

The flash point for that long-ago memory was a speech given by Donald Trump (aka, the devil incarnate) earlier this month at a rally in Georgia where he wished his supporters a Merry Christmas.

Trump’s uncaring message sent Nessel’s mind racing back to a holiday season years earlier. “I remember the first time I was at a store with my son and an employee said ‘Merry Christmas’ to us. My son looked devastated as [sic] asked ‘Are we the only people who don’t celebrate Christmas? I answered ‘No, and we are just as American as everyone else.'”

Unfortunately for Nessel, Trump’s departure from the White House is no guarantee that her son will never have to devastated by those words again:

Know what’s just as devastating? Nessel’s own posts from 2018 and 2019:

Her son’s trauma notwithstanding, Nessel attempted to provide rationale for why the phrase “Happy Holidays,” and not “Merry Christmas,” is the way to go. “Saying ‘Happy Holidays’ this time of year does not denigrate Christianity,” she wrote. “It simply acknowledges and respects the great diversity of our nation and includes each and every one of us who call ourselves proud Americans.”

Yet, the AG had no problem tweeting out cheerful tidings to followers of the phony holiday Kwanzaa:
