Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations have people seeing red ― literally.

The first lady posted a video on Twitter on Monday showing how the White House will be decorated this holiday season.

Put it this way: The first family’s home is, pardon the pun, in a very red state, including the trees, which have a definite crimson theme.

The blood red trees reminded many Twitter users of one thing: “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Hulu’s dystopian drama about a society that subjugates women.

Others were reminded of a different but just as horrifying pop culture reference.

Others felt pity for the first lady.

You’re alone. It’s weird. ‘The People’s House’ but it’s just you—isolated, surrounded by extravagance. You’re like Marie Antoinette. It’s a rather sad and pitiable promo piece w that singular token ‘be best’ ornament making it all the more so. Really feel so sorry for you.

Some tried to put a positive spin on things.

Not a fan of the red trees. But glad they recycled Donald’s old ties.

Samantha Bee appeared to be touched by the holiday spirit and made her Christmas wish to Trump.

Thanks for the holiday inspo, @FLOTUS! This year, all we want is for your husband to stop tear-gassing kids. https://t.co/YgPyhzkuYf

Getting blasted for Christmas decorations is becoming a tradition for the first lady.

How will Trump's administration impact you?

Last year she was criticized for holiday decorations that seemed more appropriate for Halloween than Christmas, according to Inside Edition.

1. It reminds me of the brushes on a drive-thru car wash. Just make them spin.

4. Makes me think of bird droppings

If a billion birds ate a trillion berries and all shit on the same spot. Yep, berry bird droppings.

5. Why do we expect her to have any better taste in decorations than she has in husbands? 😬🤔

6. Vlad's favorite color!

OMG, I didn't think the hideousness of last year's decorations could be surpassed. I was wrong. Those trees and wreaths look like they were drenched in blood.

Jesus Christ.

10. I guesss Il Douche got his Red Wave after all, but all it reminds me of is the Red Wedding.

Just like last year was The Shining, Part Deux.



God, these people are bizarre and frightening.

8. The red wreaths are 2009 White House Christmas

I don't remember anyone making such a fuss over them.

It's as if people here have never seen winterberry holly branches

She got the red from her husband's hands.

12. It all looks cheap and gaudy. It has "I really don't care, do you?" written all over it.

 

Be worst!

13. I keep thinking she went shopping at Target.

The room of red trees is depressing. Looks like blood. Are there puddles of red on the floor? Smeared on the walls?
