Melania Trump's Red Christmas Trees Conjure 'Handmaid's Tale' For Twitter Users

One tweeted, “Not a fan of the red trees. But glad they recycled Donald’s old ties.”

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.

Some tried to put a positive spin on things.

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

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

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