#WhatLiberalsCallThanksgiving and #WarOnThanksgiving are hashtags which began trending on Twitter in November 2019 after President Donald Trump claimed that some people want to change the name of Thanksgiving. The hashtags were used on Twitter to mock the president's statement.
On November 26th, 2019, Trump spoke at a Trump rally in Sunrise, Florida and during his speech he reassured the crowd that Thanksgiving will keep its name (shown below).
That same day, Twitter user @HoarseWisperer responded to a the tweet "Trump starts his rally by saying liberals don't want Thanksgiving to be called Thanksgiving" by saying "Alright, let’s do this. #WhatLiberalsCallThanksgiving Whatcha got?" (shown below). The tweet gained over 1,900 likes and 400 retweets in a day.
On November 27th, 2019, Twitter users began using the #WhatLiberalsCallThanksgiving to comment on Trump's statement. Twitter user @Nate_McMurray tweeted, "Trump says people wanted to change the name of name of Thanksgiving. Uh…when? To what? Fight over childhood disputes with siblings day? Eat the scary potluck cranberry and marshmallow dish day? This guy…" (shown below, left). That same day, Twitter users began also using the hashtag #WarOnThanksgiving. Twitter user @KKoz03 tweeted, "Wait. Now there's an imaginary war on Thanksgiving? I wish someone had warned me that skipping my mother's bad cooking was an option. 🤔Did someone tell Trump that it's not a holiday associated with Religion or no? #WarOnThanksgiving" (shown below, right).
On November 27th, Twitter user @grneyetandragon posted a GIF of Elmo raising his arms in front of flames captioned "#WhatLiberalsCallThanksgiving We call it Thanksgiving. But that's only because changing its name acts to no advantage for our secret plan to enslaved humanity under global communism. MUHAHAHAHA" (shown below).
