There is no shortage of Trump Derangement Syndrome in the media and politics but the Grinch is really coming out during the Christmas season.
“Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations are lovely but that coat looks ridiculous,” reads the headline of a Washington Post fashion story describing the annual Christmas decorations at the White House.
A second Washington Post story described the decorations as “monochromatic” and reminded readers of last year’s criticism:
Gone from the colonnade were last year’s (“creepy” or chic, depending on who you asked) blood red trees made of branches of cranberries. Trump’s critics had said they looked like they were straight out of “The Handmaid’s Tale” or “The Shining.”
Pro-life activist Dr. Alveda King, who heads Civil Rights for the Unborn -- a ministry of Priests for Life -- attended the Christmas gala at the White House and says the media is predictably wrong about the Christmas scenery.
“If you see them,” she says of the decorations, “they're gorgeous.”
King, who has a journalism degree, says there is a code of ethics that recognizes a big difference between reporting truth and voicing opinion, and so she says President Trump is right to point out that most of the news is really “fake news” without facts.
A story by The Federalist offered numerous examples of the left-wing media's adoration of Democrats' fashion and its history of mocking Republicans -- often by the very same reporter.
At the open house ceremony, King says Trump joked to the supermodel-turned-First Lady that the media liked the Christmas trees this year but didn’t like her coat.
