Melania Trump's White House Christmas Decorations Are Blowing People's Minds
Merry Christmas, under his eye.
It’s that time of year again. Sit back, relax and enjoy, for Melania Trump has unveiled the 2018 White House Christmas decorations, and the Internet’s reactions to the First Lady’s interior design choices were a delight.
Interestingly they are very pointedly described as Christmas decorations, not “holiday” -- remember that kerfuffle last year? -- and a lot of them, well, let's just say they're nothing like anything we've seen before.
MrsTrump revealed the Handmaid's Tale-style decor courtesy of a video montage, in which she wanders around her home surveying all the decorations, of which there are many. But everyone is a little obsessed with her blood red trees.
Last year that row of trees looked like this:
Needless to say, the Twitterverse had something to say about the decor -- with many suggesting the first lady was depicting a scene from Gilead.
The choice of red as the dominant decorative color was apparently inspired by the red in the presidential seal, a “symbol of valor and bravery.”
Of course, the red trees aren't the only things in the video. The video also shows decorations made from Be Best merchandise, promoting Melania's anti-bullying campaign, and include a wreath made entirely out of Be Best pencils -- sure to take someone's eye out.
Melania also posted video of hubby Donald and herself taking delivery of the tree that sits in the Blue Room at the White House, on public display.
Not sure how to feel about those decorations? Neither are we.
