Melania's 2018 White House holiday decor includes blood-red trees and a 'Be Best' pencil wreath

This morning, an official video was released of Melania Trump walking through the White House, silently admiring its new Christmas decorations.

Holding leather gloves in one hand, the FLOTUS first makes her way through a forest of blood-red trees (bring on the metaphors!). We are then shown a glass ornament of the White House and then some laser-cut art of U.S. cities. Tasteful enough, I suppose. But as the minute-long video goes on, it strays back into the strange. Some decorations featuring the First Lady's initiative of "Be Best" are revealed including an ornament and a wreath made of pencils that has to be seen to be believed.

"I'm the most bullied person in the world" claims woman who married giant orange bully

Keeping the narcissism on brand, Melania is 100% Trump.

Via CNN:

First lady Melania Trump said in an interview that aired Thursday that she is the most bullied person in the world, which has led her to create her anti-bullying "Be Best" initiative, before softening her comments slightly to say she is one of the most bullied.

"I could say I'm the most bullied person on the world," Trump told ABC News in an interview during her first major solo trip to Africa last week when asked what personally made her want to tackle the issue of cyberbullying.

"You're really the most bullied person in the world?" ABC News' Tom Llamas asked during the exchange.

"One of them, if you really see what people saying about me," Trump said.

"Be Best" apparently means "Be nice to Melania." Read the rest

Melania pets an elephant, kinda

Like other members of the Trump family, Melania is also not good at petting elephants.

Via Newsweek:

First lady Melania Trump got friendly with some baby elephants in Kenya on Friday—and one of the youngsters responded by giving her a shove.

The episode occurred when the first lady stepped forward toward a baby elephant at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust elephant orphanage. An elephant behind it appeared to nudge and cause the elephant closest to Trump to run toward her and push her backward.

Two people who appeared to be Secret Service agents quickly put their hands on Trump for support. The first lady did not appear to have been injured, smiled and stood back.
