It is tradition for the First Lady to decorate the White House for the December holidays. This year, she unveiled her decorations in a video on her Twitter account and the replies are reminding her of her past sentiments about Christmas.

"Over the past four years I have had the honor to travel to some of our nation's most lovely landmarks and meet some of the most compassionate and patriotic American citizens", the first lady said in a written statement. Together, we celebrate this land we are all proud to call home.

Three paragraphs in to the front-page piece headlined, "Everything we needed to know about Melania Trump is in those bewildering Christmas decorations", Washington Post columnist Monica Hesse took a victory lap over Trump's November loss connecting the celebration of women's suffrage in the display with the president's defeat among this key group.

"Thank you for your time, enthusiasm & devotion to make sure the spirit of peace & joy fill the historic rooms & halls of the People's House!" "Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year". "Your decorator did well here" and "this actually looks nice" in comments. In a profanity-laced conversation that was secretly recorded in 2018 by a former aide, complained about having to do them.

"I'm complicit. I'm the same like [President Trump], I support him, I don't say enough. I don't do enough", she can be heard saying on the call to Ms Wolkoff. "But I need to do it, right?" Clinton told the National Automobile Dealers Association: "The last time I actually drove a auto myself was 1996, and I remember it very well and unfortunately so does the Secret Service, which is why I haven't driven since then" (via Daily Mail).

"I'm working like a - my [expletive] off at Christmas stuff", Mrs. Trump said to Stephanie Winston Wolkoff in the recording.

This year’s theme called “American the Beautiful,” is aimed at paying “tribute to the majesty of our great Nation,” Trump wrote on Twitter

"Give me a f***ing break".

"I've always enjoyed stories about cars and adventures and I have to confess that one of the regrets I have about my public life is that I can't drive anymore", she said in 2014.
