As the Trump family prepares for its second Christmas in the White House, liberals are again panning First Lady Melania Trump’s festive decorations with scathing, hate-filled insults. Trashing the first lady’s elegant Christmas decor has become a holiday tradition for many on the Left, apparently. It really is sad to see.
I figured when I saw her choice of decor in the East Colonnade, the Left was going to have a field day criticizing it. But even I was surprised by the ferocity of their hatred and venom:
Mrs. Trump’s choice of striking red topiary trees to line the East Colonnade was bold, to be sure, and certainly not for everybody, but does it really warrant the fusillade of attacks we’re seeing on Twitter? You would think she decorated the trees with ornaments depicting Communist dictators or transvestites, or even an ornament showing her husband on Mount Rushmore. Such baubles would truly be tacky and appalling. But no — she merely decked one of the White House halls with an abundance of red trees. And Left-wing “resisters” on Twitter are — of course — resisting, to a typically unhinged degree.
Democrats are comparing the red trees to The Handmaid’s Tale because the handmaids wear red cloaks. Get it? This is “hilarious,” we’re told:

They’re also comparing the red trees to a car wash, Muppets, and other assorted things. They’ve even brought back last year’s favorite comparison — The Shining:

OK, I thought the red trees were interesting, but my first thought was Cousin It. Maybe she could have added strung popcorn to break up the color. Melania is at least decorating. #MelaniaTrump #Melania #melaniachristmas pic.twitter.com/vJCD4GJVIY

Mostly they just sniped about how ugly it all is, and what a terrible decorator Melania Trump is:
Looks like those red trees were painted with the blood of your enemies. #gross

The video is creepy. @FLOTUS looks like an evil witch living alone in a castle because the good people realized that she is wicked & have abandoned her. The red trees, the sharpened pencils, the Be Best tear gas grenades. #TrumpRussia #TrumpCrimeSyndicate #WhiteHouseChristmas

Yes, we know you have 0 class and 0 taste, Mel, no need to advertise it.

Here’s one that manages to contradict itself in only six words:
Our do nothing FLOTUS strikes again…

Then there are the tweets condemning the money spent on such finery — as if this is somehow a new thing that just started with the Trump White House:
Wonder what that cost the taxpayers, but money's no object for this pair…

I get that it isn't just you, they all do it, but why do you need so many Christmas trees? 1 is enough. Such waste. My leaders do this wasteful crap too. So out of touch with the common man.

Since when are socialists so conscientious about spending other peoples’ money, anyway?
Do you realize how many hungry children you could have fed, how many frightened children could have been reunited with their distraught parents with the money spent on frivolous decorations at OUR WHITE HOUSE? A better question is…do you and @POTUS @realDonaldTrump even care?

Back in May, the first lady announced her “Be Best” anti-cyberbullying campaign dedicated to protecting what she called “the most valuable and fragile among us” — our children. Left-wing Twitter conflates the campaign to protect children from cyberbullies with the president’s trolling of (fully grown) Democrats and media personalities. And without seeing the irony, these dolts go online to bully the polite, mild-mannered first lady — even as they accuse the president of being a cyberbully.
This is because the Left is not only seething with unhinged hatred for our admittedly combative president, but also for his polite, mild-mannered wife — so much so that the Left mocks everything about her, including her worthy and laudable “Be Best” campaign:
The “Be Best” Christmas ornaments are actually the perfect symbol for Melania Trump’s anti-bullying campaign – they both have a shiny, white exterior and are completely empty inside (much like the entire Trump clan.) pic.twitter.com/uyFmVEV4TA

This Christmas… Be Best.
By Melania Trump.

Then there are tweets that use the first lady’s Christmas decorations as a launching pad to make other idiotic and incoherent political statements. Those poor, unfortunate children who were dragged to the border by either irresponsible parents or child traffickers? Yeah, that’s 100 percent the fault of the president and first lady:

You don’t like the red trees? This art teacher politely criticized the first lady’s choice of red topiary trees, while complimenting the rest of the decor:
Aesthetically, I think the decor's well done. Nice mix of color schemes for each room. The hallway topiaries were the only misstep. Red a very dominate hue, and along with the larger sizes, they overwhelm the space. The lovely tree at the end should be the focal point instead.

That is how it’s done.
