Donald Trump seems to be a last-minute Christmas shopper, which is something many of us can identify with. But what’s cringy is watching him try to explain his Christmas gift to his own wife when he clearly hasn’t gotten her anything this late in the game.
During a teleconference this Tuesday with US military members stationed overseas, Trump was asked by a soldier what he got Melania this Christmas.
“Oh, that’s a tough question,” Trump said. “Uh, well I really should say — a very beautiful card. You know, I’m working on a lot of things. I got her a beautiful card, and actually I had a number of them picked and I picked the nicest one. Uh, a lot of love and we love our family and we love each other, and we have a great relationship — like you do, hopefully, with your spouses. We’ve had a great relationship, and I think I’ll answer that by saying, I’m still working on a Christmas present, is that okay?”
