Our Holiday Spirit continues as we listen to Hope Hicks wish us all a "Merry Christmas" from a Trump Thank You Rally in Alabama. Has Donald Trump taken the "hope" away from the Ruling Classes and handed it over to the American people? A fair trade? The Path to 306. Meanwhile, the non-diverse New York Times announces plans to downsize in the aftermath of the election, and one of its columnists -- Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman -- suggests Trump has "interesting incentives" for another 9/11, given his current "cloud of illegitimacy." Should the Swedes ask for their prize back? Plus, we review Hillary Clinton's "glum" and "solemn" holiday party described by an attendee as "a wake with a band." Hints of Formaldehyde? When Hillary blames her loss on Putin's "personal beef" against her, might it parallel her impulse to blame the 2012 Benghazi massacre on a video? Plus, we share Christmas vignettes and review the inspirational 1513 Christmas Eve Letter from Fra Giovanni Giacondo. With Listener Calls and Music via Helena Fischer, Dwight Yoakam, Jo Stafford, Bing Crosby, Erasure & the Vince Guaraldi Trio. And a bit of Christmas Yodeling, In der Weinachtsbackerei.
