In a mesmerising video posted to Twitter yesterday, FLOTUS takes us on a casual tour of her crimson, topiary-inspired vision: long black coat slung over her shoulders, oxblood opera gloves in hand, she swans through a hallway of blood red cylindrical cones, gazes into a gilded mirror, is watched from above by a bald eagle Christmas tree topper, and admires a wreath made of sharpened "Be Best" pencils. There is a soccer ball ornament. It's set to the score of a US advertisement for Kay Jewellers.
Vanessa Trump, soon to be ex-wife of Donald, Jr. had nothing but praise for her mother-in-law's decorating. "You have done an incredible job @WhiteHouse!" she tweeted. "It's absolutely stunning @FLOTUS! Love you!"
But not everyone was feeling Mrs. Trump's singular version of holiday mirth.
Decorator: Okay, so we want to avoid looking like the entrance to the White Witch's Narnian castle like we did last year.— Approximately Jane (@sgtjanedoe) November 26, 2018
Melania: What about red?
Decorator: Sure, red ornaments are cheerful!
Melania: No. The trees. Red.

From her family to yours, Melania wishes you a very pointy and monochromatic holiday season.
