After first lady Melania Trump unveiled this year’s Christmas decorations at the White House on Monday, it didn’t take long for social media users and others to weigh in with hatred and mockery. The White House’s theme for its Christmas decorations this year is “American Treasures,” which “honors the unique heritage of America,” according to a press release. Melania Trump designed the display to shine “with the spirit of patriotism” and to display “the many splendors found across our great nation.” “This is a joyous time of year when we decorate the White House for the Christmas season,” Melania Trump said in a statement. “Our theme honors the heart and spirit of the American people. Thank you to the many volunteers and staff who worked hard to decorate the halls of the People’s House in Christmas cheer.” But one aesthetic choice, in particular, really stoked speculation on social media … [Read more...] about Melania Trump Is Mocked for Decorating White House in Patriotic Red
Melania Trump, America's first lady, is a "very powerful behind the scenes force" within the White House and should be credited for getting Donald Trump to run for president, according to a new book on the administration. Ronald Kessler, the author of The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game, wrote that she has a "tremendous impact on policy and strategy" and that he believed their marriage, rocked by allegations of Mr Trump's infidelity, would stand the test of time. "She got him to run, he was pussy-footing around about running and she said you have to declare your candidacy and that's what happened and he went up in the polls," Mr Kessler told CNN on Sunday. "Beyond that she will disagree with him, she will sit in, in meetings with cabinet officers and she will disagree with Trump, her judgment is spectacular." The former Washington Post reporter quoted from an interview he carried out with Sean Spicer, the former White House press secretary, … [Read more...] about Melania Trump runs White House from ‘behind the scenes,’ new book claims
US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania shared their official White House Christmas portrait this week. The photograph shows the couple standing in the White House Cross Hall framed by two rows of lavishly decorated Christmas trees. It appears to have been taken before the black tie White House Congressional Ball last Saturday, when Melania wore a high-necked silver Celine dress. But photo experts have said they believe the shot might have been tampered with. Vogue.com's Visual Director Emily Rosser told Vogue it's all down to the lighting: “It’s how they’re lit versus the lighting in the space,” she said, “it makes them look like cutouts.” Photographer and Vogue contributor Daniel Arnold also pointed out the discrepancy between the photo released and the photo shared by Melania on her Instagram account, which he says appears "blurred" to "create a false uniformity,” “If … [Read more...] about Donald and Melania Trump’s White House Christmas picture: Was it Photoshopped?
(CNN)For Melania Trump's second Christmas season in the White House, she decided to strike a different chord, not always immediately associated with the holidays: patriotism. "This year's theme, 'American Treasures' honors the unique heritage of America," said an announcement from the first lady's office, adding the entire decorative endeavor was designed by Trump. "The White House shines with the spirit of patriotism." Throughout the displays, of which there are several in the public and state rooms of the White House, there is an overarching theme of red. The White House unveiled its Christmas decorations on Monday. Red topiaries line the colonnade joining the East and West Wings, each of the 40 trees covered in thousands of different sized real cranberries. In the Cross Hall, which connects the East Room to the State Dining Room, 29 trees are hung with more than 14,000 red ornaments, the ceiling lit up with an elaborate lighting display of holly and berries. And in the … [Read more...] about Melania Trump’s White House holiday decorations highlight ‘patriotism’
U.S. Melania Trump The late former first lady Barbara Bush, did not vote for President Donald Trump but wrote to his wife Melania Trump that she was “glad” to be welcoming her into the “First Ladies very exclusive club” instead of penning a letter to ex-President Bill Clinton, who would have entered the White House had his wife Hillary Clinton been elected. “Dear Mrs. Trump, The world thought I was writing this note to Bill Clinton. I am glad that I am not,” Bush wrote in the letter revealed in her upcoming biography. “I wanted to welcome you to the First Ladies' very exclusive club. My children were older and therefore I did not have the problems you do. Whatever you decide to do is your business and yours alone.” Bush, who died last April, at the age of 92, sent the letter to Melania Trump two weeks after Donald Trump won the election, as the incoming first lady faced scrutiny over whether she would move from New York to … [Read more...] about Barbara Bush Was ‘Glad’ Melania Trump Entered White House Instead of Bill Clinton
