Christmas Controversy & Opinion Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.
I haven't seen the commercial....I'm one that was less than thrilled with Trump's twitter call for a revolution or marching on Washington because the candidate he backed lost, but I really don't see his appearance in a commercial to be much of a big deal, to be honest. In some ways it's bad timing, but I'm sure it was shot way before the election.
To tell the truth, I'm indebted to Mr. Trump for answering a lifelong Christmas question for me--I've always wondered how Mr. Potter reacted when he found out that George Bailey _wasn't_ going to jail, and thanks to the Donald's tweets, I think I have a very good idea now

I guess it's ok if Cher makes millions of dollars running around half dressed but a man with an eye for business is not allowed to make money.
I'm not a Cher fan, but I don't think the issue is Trump's ability to make money. If I understand what's going on, several groups want consumers to boycott Macy's for their continued association with Trump. The charge is that Trump, rather than just being a blowhard, is racist and has shown a lack of respect for the office of President with his involvement in the birther movement and his recent call for Obama to release his academic records.

This commercial is actually kind of cute- Trump was at least being himself.
How do you all feel about Macy's Hurricane Sandy Relief Savings Pass? I think it is in very poor taste, and as someone who was out of power for over a week and has a brother who lost 1/2 his house it downright ****es me off.
