(Political Satire) NEW YORK– In a stunning surprise, President-elect Donald J. Trump said that Santa Claus was a conspiracy theory cooked up by Democrats.
“I don’t believe it. I don’t. He sees you when you’re sleeping? Come on,” Trump said.
When asked who else would bring toys to millions of children on Christmas morning, the President -elect said, “I don’t know. It could be anybody. It could be Russia. It could be China. It could be some guy on his bed in New Jersey.”
Reaction was swift in Congress. Sen. John McCain (R) from Arizona, called for a bipartisan investigation to get to the bottom of who exactly brought all those gifts every 25th of December. “This is a matter of national security,” he said.
Democrats were less kind. “It is simply outrageous that the President-elect of the United States would recklessly speak of Santa Claus in this way. You would think he was talking about the CIA and not Jolly Old St. Nick.”
But late today, Mr. Trump seemed to double down on his assertion that there was no Santa, Tweeting: “He knows if you’ve been bad or good? Sad.”
