Trump’s claim of movement to rename Thanksgiving met with confusion, mockery

President Donald Trump left many people scratching their heads after he decried a movement, which no one appeared to be aware of, to rename Thanksgiving, during a rally in Florida.”You know, some people want to change the name Thanksgiving. They don’t want to use the term Thanksgiving,” the president told the crowd of supporters, without explaining what he was referring to.

“That was true also with Christmas, but now everybody’s using Christmas again. Remember, I said that?” he said, comparing the shadowy threat to the gluttonous day’s moniker to his dubious claim that people had stopped telling each other “Merry Christmas” until he was elected.  “Now, we’re going to have to do a little work on Thanksgiving. People have different ideas why it shouldn’t be called Thanksgiving,” he said, again without elaborating on the identity of the feast’s alleged detractors.

“But everybody in this room I know loves the name Thanksgiving and we’re not changing it,” he defiantly declared. Trump’s claim confounded many observers. Even the hosts of “Fox & Friends,” who are generally credulous when it comes to the president, appeared skeptical morning’s show.
