Girl's Faith In Santa Unshaken After 'Marginal' Phone Call From Trump

Share

One of the callers patched through to the president was 7-year-old Collman Lloyd of Lexington, South Carolina. "Are you still a believer in Santa?".

Collman said she didn't know what "marginal" meant but agreed with Trump.

She responded, "Yes, sir", and Mr. Trump added, "Because at 7, that's marginal, right?"

The Post and Courier tracked down Lloyd who declared that, yes, she did believe in Santa and told the President that. Although she knew she was talking to POTUS, she told the Post and Courier, "It wasn't really (nerve-wracking), I just had to think of what the truth was".

The child who President Trump queried about their belief in Santa Claus has been identified as a 7-year-old SC girl who, yes, still believes in jolly old St. Nick. A staffer who answered asked Collman if she wanted to talk to the president.

Marginal? Well, it certainly is now you've effectively told me that he's not real, so thanks mate.

The NORAD calls came after Trump spent the day "all alone" in the White House, tweeting amid a falling stock market and a government shutdown of his own doing.

One person who did have something negative to say about Trump was former longtime CBS News anchor Dan Rather.

He assailed the Federal Reserve for raising interest rates, railed against Democrats who refuse to fund the wall he wants to build on the US-Mexico border, and blasted the investigation into his campaign's ties to Russian Federation, among other regular targets.
