The Southern Group ‘trumps’ the holidays with annual Christmas card

The new edition pokes fun at both sides of the aisle in Washington D.C.

You know the holidays are here when The Southern Group unveils its annual Christmas card.

The Southern Group card, now an annual tradition, offers a fun take on the year’s biggest political stories, something always guaranteed to bring a buzz — not to mention a few snickers — throughout Florida’s Capitol.

This year is no different.

The new edition pokes fun at both sides of the aisle in Washington, and there was no shortage of humorous political fodder this year.

The Democrats, the news media, the impeachment inquiry, Michael Cohen and even Stormy Daniels make the naughty list.

However it’s President Donald Trump who takes center stage and gets a little bit of a light-hearted ribbing.

The front of the card features POTUS with a Charlie Brown-esque Christmas tree while the interior depicts him making a few enhancements with magic marker, a la his Hurricane Dorian map.

Just like his claims about the crowd at his inauguration, the inside shows the now-Florida resident making an outlandish assertion.

“Many people are saying this is the biggest Christmas tree in history,” the inside reads.

TSG’s 2019 Christmas card is below.
