The First Lady received an exceptional amount of vicious after she installed 40 tress strung with cranberries and red berries in the East Colonnade of the . Besides earning the ire of netizens, the President’s wife also drew flak from the media.

Vice said Melania’s decor looks like a “circle of hell Dante could never have dreamed up.” added, “’s 2018: ’s well-established that we live in hell. only makes sense that the first lady’s Christmas decorations would match the bleakness of the Trump era.”

Vanity Fair said the First Lady’s Christmas decor always seem to have “a touch of menace to them,” as it reported: “It wouldn’t be a Trump White House Christmas without, again, a menacing touch to what is otherwise a lavishly and beautifully wrought winter wonderland. This year, crimson red dotted a long hallway, dyed with what I assume is liberal blood a-boiling.”
