Trump border protection agency’s ‘weird and bad’ Christmas joke massively backfires

Published

on

The United States Customs and Border Protection’s official Twitter account made an attempt at humor to celebrate Christmas — but it massively backfired.

In a tweet posted late on Christmas Eve, the CBP wrote that “Santa, his reindeer and all of the presents have been cleared by CBP for entry into the United States!” The tweet also featured a man dress in a Santa outfit holding up an official-looking identification card.

In an early morning interview with Fox News Business's Maria Bartiromo the president called U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) "condescending" and a "Mad Woman."

"Now you have sort of a Mad Woman," Trump said, "I call her, because she was so angry and such hatred with Justice Kavanaugh. I mean, I've never seen anything like it. She was the angriest of the group and they were all angry. They're all radical left angry people."
