It seems the left can’t ever take a day off from raging.
On Christmas Eve, President Trump briefly operated the phones for NORAD’s Santa Tracker alongside First Lady Melania and took a call from a 7-year-old girl.
President Trump’s opening line to the little girl sparked hilarity, outrage, mockery, and, of course, hysterical accusations of President Trump putting kids in “cages.” We all know how good Trump is at making the left foam at the mouth.
“Are you still a believer in Santa?” President Trump asks the 7-year-old caller, Collman Lloyd. “Because at seven it’s marginal, right?”
The Daily Beast captured the moment on video:

The ridiculous responses online ranged from stunned disbelief to whiny rage and mockery to refugee references and accusations of the First Lady secretly working for her “motherland” — as well as some admissions that President Trump just made them laugh. Here’s a few examples, including from unhinged Trump-executor Kathy Griffin:
Folks, this kid will be fine…it’s not like he’s locked in a cage or dead after attempting to seek asylum. https://t.co/riPGvt3KxB

Is this real? Like did he really ask a 7 year old if they still believe in Santa?

As well as being "marginal" as to whether Santa exists, 7 is also the age where it's "marginal" as to whether you can cross the border from Mexico to US without dying…..

I am so sick of @MelaniaTrump posing for pictures but yet doing zero for this country. What, she wants to pose with clothes on now?!?

Isn’t entertaining watching the insane left lose it?
Meanwhile, kids are still locked in cages and dying in the custody of the American government. But let's focus on Trump ruining Santa for a seven year old, who has the privilege of believing in Santa.

Yet…they seem to forget Obama put children in cages. Oh.. the sweet entertainment we get from these people is just icing on the cake. The left has no sense of humor. Which clearly shows that politics is their religion.
Some folks admitted that the moment was funny. What a Shocker. Maybe they should laugh more instead of acting like unhinged people that are off their meds.
Here’s an update: After all the pathetic outrage from whiny snowflakes, it turns out that President Trump didn’t ruin Christmas for the 7-year-old girl.

Here is more on the story via The Post and Courier:
It was the night before Christmas — 6:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, to be exact — and rich aromas of brisket and Brussels sprouts filled the kitchen of Collman Lloyd’s home in Lexington, S.C.
At this hour, Santa could have been in a chimney in the Middle East, or perhaps headed toward Africa or Eastern Europe in his sleigh. Lloyd, 7, wanted to know precisely where the man in the red suit was.

She contacted the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), which has tracked Santa’s whereabouts for 63 years. A scientist answered the phone and asked Lloyd if she would like to speak with President Donald Trump
If anyone knew where Santa was, could it be the president?
Lloyd sat in her kitchen on hold for about six minutes, she told The Post and Courier. There was no hold music, just silence. She expected to hear a voice recording when it picked up, if anything.
“He has a lot to do on the night of Christmas Eve,” she said.
Then came the New York accent.
Trump, who sat in the White House in Washington, D.C., was suddenly on speaker phone in Lloyd’s kitchen.
“Are you still a believer in Santa?” he asked.
“Yes, sir,” she said.
Then the president asked her a puzzling question:
“Because at 7, that’s marginal, right?”
Lloyd had never heard that word before, “marginal.”
“Yes, sir,” she said.
She didn’t know it, but his comment about her age being marginal — and her response — would spark national news stories that night and the following morning.
Lloyd never did learn Santa’s whereabouts, but she was glad to be able to talk with her nation’s leader.
“I was like, ‘wow.’ I was shocked,” she said. “It wasn’t really (nerve-wracking), I just had to think of what the truth was.”
After the president hung up the phone, Lloyd sat in her kitchen with her parents, her 10-year-old sister, her 5-year-old brother and a friend. She wondered about Trump’s family, and what his Christmas Eve plans were.
If she ever had the chance to talk to the president again, Lloyd said, she’d ask him about his family.
“Most people know this question. I would like to ask if he has any kids,” she said. “I’ve honestly never heard of them or seen any of them so I was wondering.”
That night, Lloyd and her siblings left iced sugar cookies and chocolate milk out for Santa. The next morning, they were gone, and under the tree was a wrapped gift with Lloyd’s name on it: a brand new American Girl doll.
Santa is real after all, Lloyd said.
