Defeated Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been accused of being something of a sore loser recently. First he claimed that Obama won the election due to giving gifts to Latino and African American voters. Even a man who had the Romney/Ryan logo tattooed on his face thought this was a bit dodgy. Now Romney is turning scrooge and saying that Santa himself is an agent of Obama.
In a statement Romney said: "Santa Claus is a tool for the Democratic Party. He gives people gifts that they don't have to pay for. Just like the Democrats give voters gifts. Last Christmas Santa Clause gave out gifts with pro Obama messages. I want a full inquiry into this."
It is not the first time that Santa has been pulled into US politics. Ronald Regan once said that he thought the big red and white man was a soviet agent. However this was after his altzimers diagnosis.
Santa himself said in a statement: "Ho ho ho. Let it be known that I never get involved with politics. If you are good then you will get a present no matter who you vote for. I even give Pepsi drinkers a present. Ho ho ho and Marry Christmas."
Donald Trump said that he has asked Santa for a copy of President Obama's birth certificate this year.
