Christmas was yesterday, and many spent some time being entertained by a certain classic movie. Salon would now like to explain just how awful the film is:

Somehow “Christmas Story” might well explain why Trump was elected, or something:

These yearnings for a particular fictional version of the American past continue to loom large in 2016, as the proto-fascist Donald Trump, promising to “Make America Great Again,” won over tens of millions of angry white voters and captured the White House, apparently with the aid of his foreign sponsor, Vladimir Putin.

Does Salon know how to party, or what!?
