Melania Trump has revealed this year's White House Christmas decorations, and they're just as devoid of joy as last year's, with one little difference. Rather than all-white spiky branches lining a massive hallway, she's opted for red cone "trees" that are anything but lifelike.
The FLOTUS shared a peek at the new seasonal decor via a video on Twitter, in which she can be seen wandering amidst the decorations wearing a dour, all-black ensemble. And though the blood red trees are dominating the decorative discourse, there's more to behold, like a wreath of pencils and tacky ornaments celebrating her grammatically incorrect "Be Best" initiative. But the Red Wedding-esque hall really encapsulates the vibe of the whole experience.
Along with the video of her wandering the White House to approve the work of volunteer decorators, she shared a few heavily filtered pics of some trees; nowhere is she cracking even the hint of a smile.
Many Twitter users quickly shared photoshopped versions of the trees from hell, in unanimous agreement that they were actually a nod to The Handmaid's Tale. The unintentional aesthetic parallel is a little too apt, TBH.
