Just how stupid would you have to be to confuse a Christmas message about Jesus with Donald Trump?
Liberals are so determined to leap on every perceived horror that they’ve taken to leaping without looking.
Yesterday, the RNC sent out a Christmas message and the mind-numbingly stupid Matt McDermott thought they were referring to Donald Trump.
Rather than stop and make sure he didn’t look like a complete imbecile, McDermott ran with it.
Here’s what the RNC wrote that got McDermott’s panties in a knot:
Merry Christmas to all. Over to millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King.
Here’s what McDermott tweeted out:
Yes, you read that Reince Priebus statement correctly: literally refers to Donald Trump as a "King" and compares him to Jesus Christ.

Yes, Matt. You read that wrong. This statement literally refers to Jesus Christ as King. You imbecilic twit.
Wow. How stupid?
These guys on the Left are so desperate to be scandalized that they have to invent things to be scandalized about.
When saner heads pointed out that the statement was about Jesus Christ, McDermott couldn’t just admit he made a mistake.
No, he then claimed the statement was ambiguous and poorly written.
I will concede that there is a mistake in this statement. The Magi from Persia did not arrive in Bethlehem until long after Jesus was born. Joseph, Mary and the baby were staying at someone’s house by the time the Magi arrived. So they were not there “on that night.”
I chalk that up to Renaissance paintings that show the wise men surrounding the manger. It’s a common misconception most people have.
Any old how.
What I find particularly ironic about this is how after Obama’s election in 2008, Leftists deified the man.
Evan Thomas said that Obama stands above us, above the world, like some kind of god.
He actually said that Obama was like a god.
Not a king, mind you — a god.
Was Matt McDermott scandalized by what Evan Thomas said of Obama?
Was he horrified that a fellow Liberal would deify a mere mortal President?
Something tells me he probably wasn’t.
The problem with waiting with baited breath for something scandalous to happen is eventually you see scandals where none exist.
Matt McDermott is proof positive of that.
And people wonder why nobody takes Leftists seriously anymore.
It really does take a special kind of stupid to make a complete moron of yourself and not even realize you’ve done it.
