Unbelievable! Not even a mall Santa is safe from the anti-Trump Left. We are living in insane times! The Left (Democrat Party) must go down hard in 2020.
Mall Santa Apologizes After Being Fired For Wearing Trump Hat While On Duty: ‘I Thought It Was Harmless Fun’
By Newsweek, December 15th, 2019:
A Georgia man has apologized after he was fired for wearing a hat supporting President Donald Trump while working as a Santa at a Georgia mall.
Frank Skinner has played Santa at The Mall at Waycross Shopping Center in Waycross, Georgia, for the past 14 years, First Coast News reported. But Skinner recently sparked controversy after a picture that showed him wearing a Trump 2020 hat with his Santa costume during his shift started circulating on Facebook.
The mall’s manager said he became aware of the picture after it was sent to him on social media on Friday. “Can Santa pleas (sic) not wear a Trump hat?” someone who had seen Skinner’s picture wrote in a message on Facebook, WTSP reported.
Mall management responded to apologize to the complainant and said they would be “addressing this right away” as the mall “does not support any specific political party.”
“It was done completely without our knowledge,” mall manager James White told First Coast News. “It’s safe to say he will not be wearing this hat around here. This particular Santa has been replaced.” Newsweek has contacted White for additional comment.
Skinner apologized for the picture in a lengthy post on his Facebook page, where he often shares pro-Trump posts, saying “it’s never Santa’s job to bring politics into the fray” and that he didn’t intend to “create a firestorm.”
Skinner maintained that the mall was about to close and no children were around when he decided to switch his Santa hat for a Trump hat and pose for a picture “for fun.”
