Revealing the presidential mansion’s holiday furnishings on Nov. 27, the First Lady decked out the White House in a classic yuletide theme dubbed “Time-Honored Traditions,” which included a bevy of twinkling Christmas trees, a live ballet performance from “The Nutcracker” and a 300-pound gingerbread replica of the White House.
To unveil the White House Christmas decorations, our First Lady, Melania Trump, wore a creamy white dress with bell sleeves and a low flared skirt—the silhouette of a tree-topper made by Dior. A child at the White House said that she looked like an angel.
But as we all know, the liberal media has nothing to say about the gorgeous, classy fashion icon except nasty commentary. Today, for her sublime winter look she earned from them the title of “evil queen.” Leave it to the New Yorker magazine to deride the First Lady for “using her knack for embodying what many people seem to want from a First Lady: smiles, nice dresses, unabashed femininity, a non-threatening aura.”
Then again, take a look at the obviously perpetually miserable writer of the quote. You know when a cartoonist captures your essence and it looks like this, you’re as bitter as… well, as bitter as anyone who was wearing a pink knit hat in Manhattan last January 21st.
Only in New York City—land of the cold, impersonal LED “holiday” lighting (that doesn’t get taken down from the icy sidewalks until at least February lately)—would those attributes be seen as detrimental. Especially at Christmas time.
Oh, did I say the “C” word? It’s okay; it is 2017 and this First Family is making sure we know the freedom that Christmas represents—even freeing up our language to address reality.
“We’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore. They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct. You go to department stores and they’ll say ‘Happy New Year,’ or they’ll say other things and it’ll be red, they’ll have it painted. But they don’t say — well guess what? We’re saying merry Christmas again.” (—Our President Trump, October 2017 at the Value Voters Summit in Washington, D.C.)
That’s right. Unlike the Obamas, this year there was no discussion about how best to pull off a “non-secular Christmas.”
Making Christmas Great Again.
