A little boy was brought to tears by a Santa after the not-so-jolly old man refused to agree the boy could get a Nerf gun for Christmas.

“No, nope, no guns,” Santa said.

After clarification, that it was a Nerf gun, Santa responded:

“Nope, not even a Nerf gun. If your dad wants to get it for you that’s fine, but I can’t bring it to you. What else would you like?”

Santa then rattled off some other toys the boy might like before the little boy began to cry.

“Don’t cry,” Santa said.

The boy asked his mom if he’d still get something — presumably a Nerf gun.

“Yeah, you’ll still get it,” she said.

It is pretty tough to screw up being Santa, but as we’ve seen in many other ways, liberalism ruins everything.
