    The Obamas’ White House Christmas tree was a politically charged, far-left anti-Christmas symbol. Their chosen tree decorator, designer Simon Doonan, is famous for his shop window display for Helmut Lang celebrating a shooting death with blood-stained windows and Margaret Thatcher as an evil half-naked dominatrix.

    The Obama tree was hung with tacky ornaments including one signed by transvestite Hedda Lettuce, the head of Chinese Communist Chairman Mao and Obama in a cult-like pose as Abraham Lincoln.

    The tree’s blank ball ornaments had been sent to “nonprofits and such” where they were inappropriately “decorated” and sent back, Michelle Obama had explained to the audience during an Oprah interview. Not a single ornament on the entire tree represented the religious meaning of Christmas.

    When a controversy erupted, the former White House Spokesperson, Anita Dunn even expressed her admiration for Mao. Refusing to call it Christmas, the Obamas had also sent out cards wishing the receivers well for the “holidays”.

    So when First Lady Melania Trump unveiled a traditional white Christmas theme, the US media erupted in a hate-filled torrent calling the decorations “creepy”, “spooky,” “spine-chilling,” and “nightmarish”.

    The Washington Post even slammed “the odd assortment of books that make up the White House Christmas book tree” and hinted at Trump’s death “given the public mood”.

    The titles that make up President Trump’s holiday book tree are a perplexing assortment. “Holding Up the Earth” (2000) is a teen novel about five generations of women whose tales come together in a “story quilt.” “Sangoma” is a memoir of a former Eagle Scout from Illinois who moves to Swaziland to become a spiritual healer. “Developing Superior Work Teams” seems like a book the president might want to at least skim. “American Mourning,” an academic study of how public mourning shapes politics “and might be employed to shape our future outcomes,” seems an unusual choice, given the public mood.

    According to Vogue the decor was “very, very white”. The added: “Indeed, some of the decorations brought to life an apocalyptic, barren landscape similar to what some of us imagine lies in America’s future, or the calming white walls of a mental institution.”

    Elle magazine wrote: “The Theme for the White House Christmas Decorations Is Fear!” But the children invited to help decorate the White House did not look particularly scared. One black child even called Melania an “angel”.
