Mall Santa reassigned after putting Hillary on naughty list
Even Santa can’t stay out of the political fray.
A Sanford mall Santa has to say his “ho, ho hos” elsewhere after telling two children that Hillary Clinton was on the naughty list.
Last week an actor playing Santa Claus at Seminole Towne Center angered a parent for telling an ill-timed political joke to two children, reported Orlando CBS affiliate WKMG.
“Do you know who is on my naughty list? Hillary Clinton,” said a Facebook post from the children’s mother, reported WKMG.
The children’s mom complained to mall management and posted it to Facebook, where the story went viral…
“Santa was given additional training to ensure that he remains in the character of Santa during all future appearances,” said a statement from Seminole Towne Center. “Santa is a symbol of peace, joy and goodwill for all and we are pleased that we are able to bring this cherished symbol to the communities we serve.”
