Christmas arrived at the White House again this year with yet another unveiling of First Lady Melania Trump's exquisite taste for classy decorations.
"Crossing in to the Grand Foyer and Cross Hall, patriotism, the heart of America, takes center stage with more than 14,000 red ornaments hanging from 29 trees". There's also some tall red trees that not-so-subtly resemble characters from a certain dystopian Hulu series that may or may not reflect disturbing authoritarian rhetoric that her president has floated during his time in office. Last year Mrs. Trump produced a spectacular display of lights during the holiday season, only to receive nasty reviews from the legacy media.
Choosing the flawless Christmas tree is hard no matter where you live, but when your home is the White House, there are some specific rules you need to follow. This tree honors veterans and the military and was decorated by Gold Star families - relatives of those who have lost a loved one while they were serving in the military. These include a massive gingerbread replica of the National Mall on display in the State Dining Room.
