United States First Lady Melania Trump became the subject of ridicule after the White House was decked with red Christmas trees.
Trump designed the Grand Foyer and Cross Hall to showcase patriotism as part of this year’s White House theme, “American Treasures,” which is about honoring America’s unique heritage, as seen on Twitter on Nov. 26. To exude valor amid the Yuletide season, Trump asked for 29 Christmas trees to be decorated with 14,000 red ornaments.
What would have been a serious theme for Americans to ponder became a subject for them to laugh at after they saw the red Christmas trees. One netizen, Wendy Smith (@wendyfarrsmith), inverted the trees in the photo to make it look like Trump was walking in what appears to be an automated carwash.
Trump addressed the criticisms she received regarding the red Christmas trees during an opioid awareness event at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, as reported by the Washington Times on Nov. 28.
“I think they look fantastic,” Trump stated, as per the report. “We are in [the] 21st century, and everybody has different taste.” NVG
