No sooner had the White House released its Christmas decorations video Sunday than first lady Melania Trump was hit with a blizzard of gleeful media criticism.
The Daily Beast reported that Mrs. Trump’s “joyless Christmas decorations are back to haunt your dreams,” while Mother Jones declared she “displays virtually no enthusiasm for anything other than periodically straightening something that the lazy servants apparently didn’t get quite right.”
Not even her clothes were off limits. The Washington Post gave a thumbs-down to the wintry white coat draped on the First Lady’s shoulders, calling it “ridiculous.”
“But more than a silly fashion folly, the coat is a distraction,” said Post fashion critic Robin Givhan. “It’s a discomforting affectation taken to a ludicrous extreme. In a video that is intended to celebrate the warmth and welcoming spirit of the holiday season, that simple flourish exudes cold, dismissive aloofness.”
Mocking Mrs. Trump’s holiday decorating has become an annual media tradition. In 2017, her white underlit bushes were deemed “hell on Earth” by Mashable, while in 2018, the New York Times and others sneered at her “blood-red trees,” prompting her to respond that “everyone has different taste.”
If Michelle wore it, Wapo would have said it was the most beautiful ever. Such hypocrisy !— Irish Rose (@packet49) December 3, 2019
My gosh, if she was married to a Dem, she’d grace the cover of a different magazine every week. And you guys write this #fakenews— Greg (@SenatorBrophy) December 3, 2019
