The mainstream media launched another series of attacks and jabs aimed at the First Lady this week; with the Washington Post slamming Melania Trump for choosing to decorate the White House with red Christmas Trees.
The Post published the article, titled “Melania chose red Christmas trees for the White House. In Europe, that’s a bad sign” Tuesday, claiming Europeans view “red Christmas trees” as “the color of sick Christmas trees.”

“The choice of red is an extension of the pales, or stripes found in the presidential seal designed by our Founding Fathers. It is a symbol of valor and bravery,” said the First Lady’s office.

MELANIA ON #MeTOO: I Stand with Women, but ‘We Need Evidence’
First Lady Melania Trump delivered her first major interview with ABC News during her recent trip to Africa this week; saying she absolutely “supports women” coming forward with allegations of sexual assault but “we need to show the evidence.”
Mrs. Trump was speaking with ABC’s Tom Llamas in an interview set for release Wednesday when she weighed-in on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation battle and the growing “Me Too” movement.
“I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence,” the First Lady told ABC News. “You cannot just say to somebody, ‘I was sexually assaulted,’ or ‘you did that to me.’ Because sometimes the media goes too far, and the way they portray some stories, it’s not correct. It’s not right.”
“What is your take about the #MeToo movement, though? Do you believe in them? Do you support the #MeToo movement?” asked ABC’s Tom Llamas.
“I support the women, and they need to be heard,” said Mrs. Trump. “We need to support them and also men, not just women.”
