Donald J. Trump is an awkward individual. He can’t do simple things without making them strange. He can’t talk about Christmas with kids without telling them Santa Claus isn’t real. And he can’t wish everyone a happy Easter without smearing a large section of the country.
On the day of the Christian holiday, while many people were attending church to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the former president was sending out one of his glorified press releases, which he still does despite owning a social media service that is so bad that he doesn’t use it, as per Gone Trending.
“Happy Easter to all including the Radical Left Maniacs who are doing everything possible to destroy our Country,” the frontrunner for the Republican presidential ticket in 2024 wrote. “May they not succeed, but let them, nevertheless, be happy, healthy, wealthy, and well!”
It’s a deeply Trumpian statement, a mix of bile and unconvincing graciousness toward his many, many enemies, which now include the majority of the world. Trump, on the other hand, has never been a big fan of Easter. He botched his first Easter egg roll in the White House, in part by allowing himself to be photographed alongside a nerdy version of the holiday’s mascot, resulting in one of his countless unflattering photos.
