Say it ain’t so. I so hope this is not true.
Why let a holiday season come between the White House and making some political statements? The White House pegged controversial designer Simon Doonan to oversee the Christmas decorations for the White House. Mr. Doonan, who is creative director of Barney’s New York has often caused a stir with his design choices. Like his naughty yuletide window display of Margaret Thatcher as a dowdy dominatrix and Dan Quayle as a ventriloquist’s dummy. For this year’s White House, he didn’t disappoint.
White House Christmas tree. = See pictures of the ornaments.
I do believe it is for real. I think it was first announced that there would be no Christmas tree as is customary. It would have been better not to even have one than this.
