President Trump blows it while taking calls from children about Santa

Share

A 7-year-old SC girl's conversation with President Donald Trump about Santa has made national news.

"Military personnel who conduct NORAD Tracks Santa are supported by approximately 1,500 volunteers who make the program possible each and every year", the agency explained. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump also participated in phone calls in 2017.

If you thought the government shutdown meant you could work in secrecy today (Dec. 24), Santa, think again. She responded, "Yes, sir", and Trump added, "Because at 7, that's marginal, right?" Trump closed by saying, "Well, you just enjoy yourself".

The Saints 4-0 against the spread in their last four home games and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall. Even FanDuel, a daily fantasy football site chose to take a shot at the young man while he was down.

Seated in front a roaring fireplace in the White House State Room, the president asked a 7-year-old named Coleman if he was "still a believer", possibly shaking the young boy's faith in Saint Nick forever.

The Post and Courier identified Trump's 7-year-old caller as a girl from SC - one who had never heard the word "marginal" before. She reported that Christmas morning, the food was gone and presents were under the tree. "Do you know where he is?" Sending along holiday cheer to you & your loved ones during this merry time.

Trump usually celebrates Christmas at his Florida estate. Trump said, captured on video.

Wolves have taken points off Manchester United , Manchester City and Arsenal this season and a few weekends ago beat Chelsea 2-1. Salah clipped a cute ball over Wolves' defence after they'd cleared a corner and Van Dijk was on hand to tap-in.

"I was like, 'wow.' I was shocked", Collman told the Charleston newspaper. He didn't say which family members were at the Mar-a-Lago estate.

To find out, the eager American boy called the North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD), which tracks Father Christmas on his worldwide gift delivery round.

The NORAD tradition started six decades ago when, in 1955, Sears and Roebuck, who would provide a phone number to children who wanted a little talk time with the jolly old elf misprinted the phone number and inadvertently directed the children's calls to the Continental Air Defense Command center.

It would be a Christmas miracle if the Trump administration didn't have a staff shake-up before the end of the year. Secretary of Defense James Mattis is stepping down at an extraordinarily fraught moment in American foreign policy.

For First Lady Melania Trump, the annual event "is becoming one of my favourite traditions".
