Donald Trump Wishes the Country “Happy Good Friday”

Dear Commons Community,

President Donald Trump’s ignorance was on full display yesterday when he came up with an unusual greeting  to those commemorating the day Christ was nailed to a cross: “HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY TO ALL!”

He later wished everyone a “great” Good Friday at his press briefing.

The jarring greeting referred to the most somber day of the Christian calendar. It marks the torture of Jesus and his death upon a cross. The “good” in Good Friday refers to the day being “holy.”

Trump’s wish was particularly jolting given that the nation’s death toll from COVID-19 has surpassed 18,000 and continues to surge.

What an embarrassment!
