Every year, the White House sets up a big Christmas tree to celebrate the holiday. Then they dress up the White House in decorations and release a video of walking through the building showing everything that they've done and how nice it looks for the holiday season.
Jill Biden posted a video on Wednesday but I'm not sure what it was or if it was supposed to be a decorations video. It had everyone talking about it because it was so bizarre. It was supposed to show a dance troupe, tap dancing throughout the Christmas decorations in the White House. But it was definitely weird and didn't show off the decorations very well.

"A bit of magic, wonder, and joy brought to you by the talented tappers of Dorrance Dance, performing their playful interpretation of The Nutcracker Suite. Enjoy!" Jill Biden posted.
It didn't look anything like the Nutcracker Suite, which is beautiful and classical. Apparently, they had to change that because they're Democrats — they just can't leave anything alone. But they ended up making it look like "Hunger Games at the Circus." It had people dressed in bizarre outfits including a woman in a suit looking like she had a "furry face" on and a guy with a huge purple flower on his head. It made the White House look a bit like a circus tent. I'm not sure what the cost of that production was but whatever it was, it wasn't worth it.
Worst of all, the video released by Jill had none of the inspiration and magic of Christmas in it, despite Jill Biden talking about "magic, wonder, and joy."
But perhaps that's what one should expect from someone who has a habit of wearing unfashionable and unflattering tacky couch patterns for dresses.

Compare that to Melania Trump's walk through a Christmas wonderland and you can see the big difference in thought and execution.
How utterly tacky, tasteless and ANTI Christmas.— Peri Fine (@Perifinesse) December 14, 2023
Melania's was tasteful, seasonal, appealed to everyone and was absolutely breathtaking and gorgeous.pic.twitter.com/v3FQ81ytxJ
The comments on the video were almost universally bad and critical. Many saw the "Hunger Games," like I did, and many called it embarrassing, cringeworthy, or otherwise problematic.
Comedian Tim Young even asked why they were celebrating the Nutcracker since that was Russian, and they have an obsession against Russia to smear their opponents. If Melania had posted this, they undoubtedly would have attacked it, but since Jill did, no one is supposed to note how weird it is.

Now we know why the National Christmas tree was falling over.
The metaphor continues...
