Let Me Be Frank and Merry Christmas?!

Donald Trump hints to 7-year-old that Santa isn't real during Christmas phonecall
Have  a Merry Mad Christmas:-)
This Christmas trumps them all as far as White (House) Christmases go it would seem, and it seems we are all living in an absurd sit-com.
Frankly speaking, this world is fast becoming one big sick joke it would seem to me.
It will certainly be interesting to see how these two presidential figures defend their actions in the new year.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus  ... and fake news.
"In 1897, Dr. Philip O'Hanlon, a coroner's assistant on Manhattan's Upper West Side, was asked by his then eight-year-old daughter, Virginia O'Hanlon (1889–1971), whether Santa Claus really existed. 
O'Hanlon suggested she write to The Sun, a prominent New York City newspaper at the time, assuring her that "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." 
In so doing, Dr. O'Hanlon had unwittingly given one of the paper's editors, Francis Pharcellus Church, an opportunity to rise above the simple question and address the philosophical issues behind it.
Church was a war correspondent during the American Civil War, a time that saw great suffering and a corresponding lack of hope and faith in much of society.
Although the paper ran the editorial in the seventh place on the page, below even one on the newly invented "chainless bicycle", it was both noticed and well received by readers.
According to an anecdote on the radio program The Rest of the Story, Church was a hardened cynic and an atheist who had little patience for superstitious beliefs, did not want to write the editorial, and refused to allow his name to be attached to the piece
 More than a century later it is the most reprinted editorial in any newspaper in the English language."
But what about the Donald Bunny?-)
Trump's Tower?-)
