Twitter Calls Melania Trump Out For ‘Using Black Kids As Props’ At White House Christmas Event

Melania Trump just can’t get it right, at least not with Twitter anyway. Hours after her “time-honored traditions” inspired Christmas decor was compared to films like Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas, Trump was dragged once again online, but for a separate set of holiday festivities.

  1. Footage of the FLOTUS embracing a group of predominately African-American children attending a #WhiteHouseChristmas event went viral igniting a slew of commentary on her interactions with the young kids.

  2. While Trump took to Twitter dishing on the good time she had with the children from the Joint Base Andrews Naval Facility, other Twitter users weren’t impressed at all.
