Critics are bashing first lady Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations for the second year in a row, this time focusing on her “red Christmas trees of death.”

Last year, the media trashed Melania’s White House winter wonderland theme, which featured large icy branches in white pots and snowy Christmas trees. (RELATED: Media Attacks Melania’s Christmas Decorations, Call It Horror Show Nightmare)

Melania chose avant-garde decorations again this year, citing a patriotic theme and lining the halls of the White House with large, bushy red trees.

The Washington Post published an article Monday criticizing Melania for skipping the press preview of her decorations, and noted the backlash about her “spooky Christmas decorations” and “scary and ominous” trees.

Slate dubbed the trees the “red Christmas trees of death,” while Vice said that Melania is hosting a “Christmas from Hell.”

Other media members, such as MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and Mic’s Emily Singer, compared the Christmas decorations to the famous scene from “The Shining” where blood pours down the halls of the Overlook Hotel.

 

Raw Story’s Martin Cizmar said he is “legitimately angry+appalled” by Melania’s Christmas decorations and called her the “worst lady in our nation’s history.”
