For 8 years, the Obamas decorated the White House for the “holidays,” and even their Christmas cards completely ignored actually USING the word Christmas. It was a really dismal near-decade in the White House.
Thankfully, Donald and Melania Trump have ramped up Christmas this year, with beautiful decorations, a manger scene, and actually putting the CHRIST back in CHRISTMAS.
The Christmas tree and decorations more focused on the holiday is a big change from the first Christmas with the Obamas in the White House.
The Obamas had some very un-Christmas like things on the tree, including an ornament featuring Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong who killed millions of people.
Mao Zedong is in the White House, hanging out with a drag queen. Not far away, Barack Obama is making a play to have his head etched in stone.
Critics of President Obama are setting their sights this week on the official White House Christmas tree, which features controversial ornaments including an orb depicting the late Chinese dictator, another that shows drag queen Hedda Lettuce, and yet another that shows a picture of Mount Rushmore — with Obama’s head pasted to the side of Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelts.
God rest ye, merry gentlemen.
It was too much even for someone from Gawker.
Added Azaria Jagger, a blogger at the news and gossip site “Gawker”:
“[D]oes it really make sense to put a tyrannical communist leader’s visage on the American president’s Christmas tree? On the other hand, an ornament that shellacks [Obama’s] face onto Mount Rushmore is just tacky. It’s in the guy’s living room, for crying out loud.”
It’s so nice to have this kind of “refreshing” Christmas with Trump in the White House.
