Melania Trump recently defended the red Christmas trees decorating the White House, arguing that they look 'beautiful' and 'fantastic.'


The 48-year-old proudly unveiled the 'American Treasures' theme on Monday, November 26, 2018, but some people were not impressed.

Still, the First Lady of the United States stood by the decorations during her appearance at the Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, arguing that 'everybody has a different taste.'

Those who didn't like the idea of having red trees didn't shy away and took to the internet to express their opinions, some of which comparing the trees to the red cloaks from the TV show "The Handmaid's Tale.'

There were also people stating that the crimson trees reminded them of the sea of blood scene in the classic movie "The Shining," featuring Jack Nicholson, during which blood pours out of an open elevator.


“We are in [sic] 21st Century and everybody has a different taste. I think they look fantastic. I hope everybody will come over and visit it. In real life, they look even more beautiful. You are all welcome to visit the White House, the people’s house."

A Twitter user named Mark Childress also used "The Shining" as a source of inspiration and shared a satirical image of the creepy ghost twins from the movie standing in the hall of the White House surrounded by the red trees.


Red was the color of choice for this year's decorations and the reason why is fairly simple. According to the First Lady, the red 'is an extension of the pales, or stripes, found in the seal designed by our Founding Fathers'

" I think they look fantastic."


Being a symbol of 'valor and bravery,' Melania believes that it was a wise choice on her part, even though it is quite odd to see a red Christmas tree, especially in the White House.
