Trump’s Christmas-Themed Mississippi Rally Was the Perfect Reminder That the ‘War on Christmas’ Is Over

President Donald Trump rallied in Mississippi on Monday night to campaign for Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) as voters head to the polls on Tuesday, but he did so with some holiday cheer.

Walking out onto the stage, President Trump entered the room in the same way as Santa Claus, through a chimney — surrounded by Christmas decorations.

Greeting his supporters at the rally, fake snow began to fall down onto the president.

Watch the video below:

As the song “Don’t Stop Believing” played on the speakers, attendees at the rally got a special greeting by Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and some of their elves from the North Pole — and they didn’t show up empty-handed.

The Claus’ threw Make America Great Again hats into the crowds.

But on a real note, President Trump’s Mississippi rally was to encourage people to vote for the Republican incumbent against her Democrat challenger Mike Espy in the Mississippi midterms special election.

The voting comes after neither of the two won 50 percent of the votes during the 2018 midterm elections to take the spot in the U.S. Senate — Hyde-Smith gained 41.5 percent of the votes, while Espy had 40.6 percent of the votes.

“I think it’ll be a very big day for Cindy, but don’t take any chances,” President Trump said at the Mississippi rally. “That’s happened many times before. That never works out well, just assume you have to vote.”

“Cindy is so important, so respected. … If we win tomorrow, we’ll be at 53-47 seats, which is substantially more than we had.”

As IJR Red previously noted, either of the two being elected to the U.S. Senate would be history making as Hyde-Smith would become the first elected female senators in Mississippi and Espy would become the first African-American elected for the senator spot since the Reconstruction era.


  1. Oh, thank God! No more FB claims from people claiming they “can’t” say Merry Christmas as they wish everyone Merry Christmas. Not a single one could ever answer what the penalty was for saying it.

    1. I was scolded by a grocery checkout person for saying “Happy Holidays” last year. I was in hurry, but it didn’t stop him from pausing in his job to give me an earful on how he is supposed to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas – which he felt was just wrong.

      I didn’t complain, but I’m not surprised i didn’t see him again working there the next week. And you can bet he told everyone he was fired for saying Merry Christmas.

  2. A spectacle, a circus act. His rallies are becoming less effective, so I hope this one also doesn’t work.

  3. I’m not even Christian and as I look at the Christmas tree up in my living room and start my Christmas cards for the year (as I’ve done for years), i can honestly say the “war on Christmas” was all in your head. At least if your definition of Christmas includes specfically decorated treees, Santa, reindeer, etc…

    Well played on the clickbait though. Happy voting MS.
