While we will soon be rid of the Trump infestation of the White House, we still have to weather one more holiday season with these monsters as our leaders. Donald Trump has been conspicuously absent from the public eye lately, preferring instead to blast out sporadic tweets packed with lies about how the election was stolen for him. He refuses to admit that he lost despite President-elect Joe Biden beating him by roughly 7 million popular votes and 72 electoral votes and with each day that passes without a concession he further cements his legacy as the most pathetic creature to ever hold the presidency.
Meanwhile, Melania Trump is making some lukewarm efforts to at least pretend to be a normal First Lady. Today, she tweeted out a video unveiling her White House Christmas decorations, an act that took on a rather ironic tint now that we know how she actually feels about holiday decorating. While she claimed to be “delighted” to be sharing her “America the beautiful” themed displays, her past comments would seem to indicate she’s anything but.
During this special time of the year, I am delighted to share “America the Beautiful” and pay tribute to the majesty of our great Nation. Together, we celebrate this land we are all proud to call home. #WHChristmas pic.twitter.com/fdZmB3rdXL

Last month, the First Lady’s former advisor Stephanie Winston Wolkoff released a recording of Melania in 2018 whining about having to handle Christmas planning duties at 1600 Pennslyvania Avenue. The profanity-laden rant came as a particularly ironic surprise given the manner in which Republicans are constantly accusing Democrats of waging a “War on Christmas.”
“I’m working my a– off with the Christmas stuff that, you know, who gives a f*ck about Christmas stuff and decorations but I need to do it, right?” Melania can be heard saying on the tape.
“Yeah but–” Winston Wolkoff says.
“Correct?” Melania says.
100% you have no choice,” replies Winston Wolkoff.
“Okay, and then I do it. And I say that I’m working on Christmas planning for the Christmas. And they said ‘Ooh, what about the children that they were separated? Give me a f*cking break,” Melania added, sounding eerily similar to her odious husband.
To be clear: Melania is perfectly entitled to dislike Christmas decorating. She can despise everything from Santa Clause to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer if she likes. There is no rule of law or morality that dictates she must love hanging up lights or that she possess even a scrap of holiday cheer.
The issue here comes down to hypocrisy. She has enabled her odious husband for years and years and President Trump has repeatedly claimed to be a champion of Christmas, the man who finally defeated the joyless liberals to make it okay to say “Merry Christmas” again. In reality, he has shunted off all the responsibilities for celebrating the holiday to his wife, who in turn despises it. The American people have been condescended to and gaslit by these people for far too long and soon enough the Trump’s and their bad faith complaints will be banished back into obscurity where they belong.
Twitter users quickly piled criticisms on the First Lady and the Christmas decoration audio recording once again went viral.

I thought you said you don't give a fuck about Christmas, wasn't that your own words?

Since we heard what you really think about children in cages and Christmas, I thought we would be spared the fakery this year.

LOL it looks like a golf ball!
Fitting, considering that's all your idiot husband did for 4 years.
Amazing how bad he still is at golf after spending a full year out of the last 4 on the course, or more accurately, in the rough.
So glad this is your last Christmas in the WH. pic.twitter.com/py1f0T6L4u

I thought the theme this year is “Who Gives a F😆ck about Christmas”?

Do people have to climb over the wall to see it now? Is the White House open to visitors?

Where are the kids? Where's the jollity? Every year, it looks like a department store before the customers get there. No heart, no fun, no real Christmas.
