At the opening of his speech to a Florida crowd Tuesday, President Donald Trump claimed that “some people” don’t want to call it Thanksgiving anymore.
It was news to many progressives who missed the memo of the latest war against Thanksgiving.

Dammit, guys, why didn’t you tell me we were going to start a war on Thanksgiving…I was making my “take Christ out of Christmas” sign and didn’t buy enough materials for both. #WhatLiberalsCallThanksgiving

That said, progressives routinely mock Fox News for declaring a “War on Christmas” before anyone on the left had heard about it.
As a form of mockery, Twitter user @HoarseWisperer created the hashtag #WhatLiberalsCallThanksgiving.
Alright, let’s do this.#WhatLiberalsCallThanksgiving

The false rumor seems to have been started by conservative personalities Diamond and Silk who announced the War on Thanksgiving on Fox News.

We call it #Thanksgiving. BTW this liberal makes a better turkey than any conservative ever could. Conservatives like beige, unflavorful dry turkey. Liberals like juicy, crispy, delicious turkey. #WarOnThanksgiving #WhatLiberalsCallThanksgiving. pic.twitter.com/ngcLJDd5dW
