No, Trump didn’t crush a 7-year-old’s dreams of Santa. Her parents tell haters to stop, so Left turns on them.

Despite complaints from the far-left about what President Donald Trump told an 7-year-old girl from South Carolina about Santa Claus during a phone call this week, the girl’s parents didn’t even mind.

“I think it’s crazy it became a big deal. It’s Christmastime. I’d love to keep politics out of Christmas. It didn’t bother me — I like to talk to my kids like adults,” the girl’s father, Donald J. Lloyd, said in a statement to BuzzFeed.

Seven-year-old Collman Lloyd’s mother, Erica, concurred.

“I’m a teacher. I’m OK with the vocabulary. He was very kind. I was very impressed with the phone call,” she said.

Earlier in the week on Christmas Eve, their daughter dialed up North America Aerospace Defense Command, which has been tracking Santa’s journey across the world since 1955.

As part of NORAD’s program, the president and his wife, Melania, have been accepting phone calls from children on Christmas Eve every year to speak with them about Santa’s whereabouts.

During Trump’s brief phone call with Collman, he asked her if she still believes in Santa.

“Are you still a believer in Santa? Because at seven it’s marginal, right?” he asked.

It was presumably a joke.

This joke triggered a backlash from the left, which accused Trump of ruining Collman’s Christmas. It was an accusation as credible as allegations of Russian collusion.


It was a 7-year-old girl, not a boy …

And Trump didn’t ruin Collman’s Christmas.

“He said, ‘Happy Christmas … It was great speaking to you, Collman … Please tell [your family] I wish them a happy Christmas. It made her Christmas,” the young girl’s mother said.

“Erica and Donald said Trump’s question about believing in Santa, and his ‘marginal’ comment, went completely over their daughter’s head. And they’re not at all concerned that it may have planted doubt in her belief in the Christmas figure,” BuzzFeed added.

Watch Collman’s reaction below:

Christmas at the Lloyd home this year wound up being no different than past years.


“That night, Lloyd and her siblings left iced sugar cookies and chocolate milk out for Santa. The next morning, they were gone, and under the tree was a wrapped gift with Lloyd’s name on it: a brand new American Girl doll,” their local newspaper,  The Post and Courier, reported. “Santa is real after all, Lloyd said.”

So case closed, right?  Not exactly.

Instead of just dropping this non-issue, leftists have refocused their perpetual ire on Collman’s parents.


Such kind, tolerant people, aye?

To be clear, neither Collman nor her parents knew she’d be speaking with Trump when she dialed NORAD.

“Don and I looked at each other and said surely this is a recorded message,” Erica said, describing the moment someone at NORAD placed Collman on hold so she could be connected to the president. “We were in shock, we really thought it was a recorded message.”

Nope. It was the president of the United States.
