Woke ‘Last Christmas’ Sinks as Another PC Debacle
November 30th, 2019 1:30 PM
Audiences paying to see Last Christmas got more than a yuletide romance. The film, starring Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding, toes a politically correct line.

On Monday, Melania Trump unveiled her theme for this year’s White House Christmas decorations and, right on cue, celebrities and the media have started attacking her for it.

It’s almost that time of year.
