WATCH: Ryan Zinke Introduces Donald Trump as ‘The Man Who Brought Christmas Back to America’

Nope.

At the White House’s annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony Wednesday night, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had the honor of introducing President Donald Trump, and he did it in the exact way Trump would want him to…

As:

“the man who brought Christmas back to America!”

You can watch the clip below: 

Christmas, of course, has not actually gone anywhere, as social media was quick to point out.

And wait, what about that Trump Organization “Holiday Party”!?

The Twitter mockery did not let up.

Credit where credit is due:

In 2017, Zinke gave Trump a nearly identical introduction when he referred to the president as “the man who brought Christmas back to the nation’s capital.”

This is ironic, because Trump has been clear about his favorite places to celebrate Christmas, or whatever it is that he does.

On Christmas Eve last year, Trump gave himself credit for reinvigorating the phrase, “Merry Christmas.”

“People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again,” Trump tweeted. “I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our cherished and beautiful phrase. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!”

Shortly after he was elected in 2016, Trump patted himself on the back for American consumer Christmas spending and for saving the planet from being “gloomy.”
