‘All I want for Christmas is for you to vote for Trump’ man tells Santa

Matt Boyer and Santa - WATE

SEVIERVILLE (WATE) – Everyone knows Santa is jolly, but the mother of Matt Boyer said her son had Santa giggling when he asked Santa to vote for presidential hopeful Donald Trump.

Teresa Boyer said her son has Down syndrome, but can talk politics with the best of them. “He loves football and politics,” she said, adding that he loves the Florida Gators despite his family’s best wishes.

For years Matt Boyer was a Hillary Clinton supporter, going against his parents beliefs. However, this year his family said he jumped on the “Trump train” after reading about Benghazi.

“He goes in the voting booth and votes every election and he knows exactly what he’s going to do every election,” said Teresa Boyer.

The Corryton mother said her family waited for two hours to see Santa Claus at the Bass Pro Shops in Kodak. When it was her son’s turn Teresa Boyer said Santa asked “what do you want for Christmas this year?” and Matt said “All I want is for you to vote for Trump to president” and handed him a button.

According to the Boyer family, Santa got a big kick out of Matt Boyer’s request and it was written all over his face and the photos.

“He gave him a fist bump,” said Teresa Boyer. “And said ‘You got it buddy.’” Santa later told her “It is my job to make the children’s Christmas special, but this kid made my Christmas.”

The Boyer family said they shared the photo with Trump by social media in hopes he could acknowledge Matt Boyer and Santa.
