When it comes to Christmas, first lady Melania Trump simply can’t do anything right in the eyes of the mainstream media.
Only a few weeks after her Christmas décor was vilified, several "art experts" at struggling Vogue ganged up on the White House Christmas portrait in an article posted on Vogue’s website that says the image “feels so strangely off.”
The magazine’s piece, which ran without a byline, is headlined, “What’s Up With This Year’s Surreal White House Christmas Portrait?” It accuses “FLOTUS and POTUS of looking almost like cardboard cutout versions of themselves” and declared they shouldn’t be smiling amid negative news that is currently in the headlines.
The photo, which the first lady shared on Instagram, features the president and his wife looking happy amid a room filled with Christmas decorations.
