She hates doing it. We have never been big fans of it either. And yet, Melania Trump, icon of the war on Christmas, has done it again: decorating the White House.
It is both a Groundhog Day– a holiday ritual and a finale. The first lady, who decorated the hallways in a nightmarish way for four years, with blood-red trees and barren white branches, is finally going to sign a job she admittedly hated.
“Who cares about Christmas stuff?” Melania whimpered in a conversation with her former ‘friend’ Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, which was secretly taped two years ago and released last month.
Never one to hide her emotions, Melania watched this year’s display of glittering garlands and trees with the type of disdain one might have to watch a raccoon rummage through discarded sugar cookies sitting at the table. trash can outside on December 26.
“At this special time of year, I am delighted to share ‘America the Beautiful’ and pay homage to the majesty of our great nation,” Melania tweeted. “Together, we celebrate this land that we are all proud to call home.”
It was an empty, detached statement from someone who spent her husband’s first and only trimester staring into space, needlessly, manifesting a future where she can go back to New York and do whatever she wants. makes you happy. (Pilates? Add Dior blazers to your Net-a-Porter basket?)
Her outfit for the occasion – or at least the official photos she posed on – was just as cold. The look was also very impractical for the task, although Melania let it be known on Twitter that the real big work is done by plebeian “volunteers”, not her French manicured hands.
She wore four-inch Louboutin heels, a long-standing shoe of choice for wealthy and miserable women, a high-waisted pencil skirt, and a crumpled silver blouse. She looked polite and neat, and was unlike any of us at the moment. It was another Marie Antoinette de Melania moment, as we all walk around our houses swaddled in sweatpants and fear. Let them wear a Givenchy hoodie, this outfit growls.
Melania comes across as formal, dressy, and going to work, all the while vacillating in the house she’s supposed to live in. Many Americans have spent much of this year familiarizing themselves with every corner and crack in drywall as a byproduct of staying at home; our first lady is still speechless around hers with the distance of a stranger.
Unlike creepy, shadow-casting, and probably haunted trees from previous years, or The brilliantevergreen in color erected in 2018, Melania’s latest decorations are, well, OK.
Some might even consider the scene to be beautiful, perfect in that every room has its place. However, for all of its conventional sheen, there is a lingering void throughout. What a very fitting final Christmas decoration for the Trump White House.
