The liberal media has found a new target – Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations.
Slate called the trees “blood-red cones,” and a macabre take on “trees” that taints what might have been a bounty of winter fruit with the flavor of death. Dwarfing any human that dares tread their unholy ground, the installations resemble piles of human entrails, or perhaps cranberry boughs. Either way, they reek of the threat of execution, recalling both a row of handmaids lined up for a hanging and a rose garden painted red for the pleasure of a bitter queen. Merry Christmas!
And USA Today called it a “Handmaid’s Tale” Christmas.

In what has become an annual holiday tradition, first lady Melania Trump was needled Monday by the media for her decorations, in this case the crimson Christmas trees lining the White House East colonnade.
Slate roasted Mrs. Trump for “her red Christmas trees of death,” while The Washington Post called them “spooky” and Mashable ripped the “forest of blood-red trees.”
BuzzFeed News dubbed them the “merry cones of death,” adding that they “literally look like they’re dripping with blood.” Vanity Fair deemed the trees “menacing.”
Then there were the tweets comparing the 40 unadorned topiary trees to the red-clad women of Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
The barbs came a year after Mrs. Trump was scorched for decorating the hallway with planters of white trees branches, which the Daily Beast called “the most terrifying domestic space in America” and “Melania Trump’s nightmare before Christmas.”
“Last year, shadowy white branches stretched above Trump as if she was our Christmas heroine making her way through an eerie tunnel of witch’s knuckles on her way to a candy-cane forest,” Vanity Fair said. “This year, crimson red trees dotted a long hallway, dyed with what I assume is liberal blood a-boiling.”
