Melania Trump unveils White House Christmas decorations

First Lady Melania Trump unveiled the White House's annual Christmas decorations on Monday-which she designed herself- only to be trolled online.

Just like past year, Christmas came early for the internet, as people on Twitter couldn't resist joking about the first lady's chosen holiday decor. The White House is calling them "topiary trees", and their boughs seem to have been constructed from strung red orbs, which resemble the strings of cranberries that accented the Christmas trees of yore. But Melania Trump made a decision to sit this one out.

The East Room features the cityscapes of New York City, St. Louis, Chicago, and San Francisco to highlight "the diversity and ingenuity of American architecture".

Over the years, first ladies have appeared in blinking Christmas tree pins and emerald green dresses.

Nissan CEO tells staff feels ‘dismay’ at Ghosn scandal
Ghosn allegedly determined his remuneration as about ¥2 billion per year and underreported it by half, the sources said. Ghosn and Kelly were arrested and dismissed from their positions this week over allegations of financial misconduct.


But the effect - essentially the flipside of last year's motif, in which the trees were solid white and also derided as horror movie worthy - didn't draw too many warm feelings on social media.

Granted, it's hard to make the White House look festive and cozy when the administration dropped tear gas on migrant children less than a day ago. Meanwhile, the Gold Star Family tree pays tribute to troops. Although she didn't speak to reporters, she wandered through the decorated rooms interacting with schoolchildren and was available for photo ops. And they expect 30,000 visitors to walk through the halls on holiday tours.

Also on display are the customary gingerbread house and the traditional White House tree, which stands at 5.5 meters tall.
