LANSING, Mich., December 9, 2020 – As President Trump wishes Americans holiday greetings, Attorney General Dana Nessel took to Twitter to condemn wishing others a “Merry Christmas”.
Nessel contextualized this criticism with a story about a store clerk who politely wished her and her family “Merry Christmas”, which she took as a personal offense. In the since-deleted tweet, she absurdly claimed that wishing “Merry Christmas” to those who don’t celebrate it indirectly accuses that them of being un-American.
“This is yet another example of Dana Nessel saying outrageous things to drum up her own publicity for Joe Biden and the national media.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “Not only is President Trump aware of our great nation’s diversity, his daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren are Jewish and the first Jewish members of a First Family. I hope that Dana Nessel can embrace the spirit of the season and put away the partisanship and religious intolerance she displayed on Twitter.”
This is not the first time Dana Nessel has shown her religious intolerance, back in 2019 Nessel was criticized for attacking Catholics and making offensive jokes about the Rosary.
