FLASHBACK: Remember When The Obama White House Christmas Tree Featured A Communist Leader?

Back in 2009, the Obamas were enjoying their first Christmas in the White House. The Christmas tree had an ornament on it featuring the Chinese communist leader Chairman Mao. Do you remember this?

White House Christmas Decor Featuring Mao Zedong Comes Under Fire

Mao Zedong is in the White House, hanging out with a drag queen. Not far away, Barack Obama is making a play to have his head etched in stone.

Critics of President Obama are setting their sights this week on the official White House Christmas tree, which features controversial ornaments including an orb depicting the late Chinese dictator, another that shows drag queen Hedda Lettuce, and yet another that shows a picture of Mount Rushmore — with Obama’s head pasted to the side of Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelt’s.

God rest ye, merry gentlemen.

Earlier this month, when the Christmas tree was unveiled, first lady Michelle Obama described how it was decorated in a video posted on the White House Web site:

“Our starting point was a very simple idea,” she said. “That we include people in as many places, in as many ways as we can. We took about 800 ornaments left over from the previous administrations. We sent them to 60 local community groups throughout the country and asked them to decorate them, paying tribute to a favorite local landmark, and then send them back to us for display here at the White House.

You won’t find any ornaments featuring Communist leaders of the Christmas tree in the Trump White House.

What a difference an administration makes.
