‘Tis the season at the White House.
First Lady Melania Trump, who hates Christmas, just unveiled this year’s White House holiday decorations and the display may be her most cheerless and dismal one yet.
Over 125 volunteers helped adorn the people’s house with classic yuletide décor based on the theme “America the Beautiful.” The decorations include 106 wreaths and 62 trees, plus over 1,200 feet of garland, 3,200 lights, 17,000 bows, and 150 different types of foliage and floral.
But the decorations that are getting the most attention are the funeral urns. Yes, funeral urns.

Melania has a bunch of black funeral urns lined up in the East Colonnade. Because nothing says “Christmas 2020” like decorative canisters used to hold the cremains of the deceased.
The outgoing FLOTUS’s decorations have been compared to everything from a perfume counter at Macy’s to a funeral home.
Here’s what people are saying…

Are you fucking serious? URNS FOR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS? There are how many dead from COVID, and you thought URNS WERE A GOOD IDEA?

Every Christmas, she manages to make the White House look like Macy’s fragrance counter.

You really have a knack for making it look like a darkly festive funeral home at Christmas.

The Cremation Urns of Covid Christmas. How festive.

Thank you to the 100+ volunteers that braved the Covid super spreader location to decorate our house.

Looks like Melania is waking an aisle of black funeral urns. Appropriate I guess.
