Skip to comments.Transvestites, Mao And Obama (on Mt. Rushmore) Ornaments Decorate White House Christmas Tree

Why let a holiday season come between the White House and making some political statements? The White House pegged controversial designer Simon Doonon to oversee the Christmas decorations for the White House. Mr. Doonon, who is creative director of Barneys 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 ventriloquists dummy. For this years White House, he didnt disappoint.
These photos of ornaments on the White House Christmas tree in the Blue Room were taken just days ago. Of course, Mao has his place in the White House.
And, of course, it wouldnt be Christmas without an ornament of legendary transvestite Hedda Lettuce.
And, so soon after collecting the Nobel Peace Prize, why wouldnt the White House have an ornament super-imposing President Obama onto Mt. Rushmore:
And I thought slick was bad.
I think Zero is partial to Uncle Bob's brand!
The images look like they were cut out and glued on, or perhaps done in Photoshop. Can you confirm that these are real photos of real ornaments actually on a tree in the White House? And is this tree a “community tree” of some sort, on which anyone can hang an ornament, or are all its ornaments affirmed by the White House?
A great idea, I am afraid the Bolsheviks in training would most likely take offense to it.
Well, we had eight years of Arky white trash now we have Chi-town (almost) black trash.....
Nothing is beyond the pale for this administration.
But “don’t” dare accuse them of being pro-Communist for loving Chairman Mao.
The Clintons’ used condoms and needles decorated X-mas tree isn’t looking so bad these days.
What? Is this on the level?
A Mao ornament and one with his face on Mt. Rushmore!
In the Blue Room?
Who the hell does he think he is? !!!!!!!
Actually, I consider him a fringe American and that has nothing to do with his birth certificate.
I don't think he wants anything to do with the U.S. as it is today (or was yesterday). He wants a U.S. that looks like Venezuela, Cuba or, at the very least, France.
That's progress for that bunch.
They won't remove keys from the keyboards, they will later blog photos of what they did to the keyboards and doorhandles they left "behind" for the next administration's staff to use.
I am beyond words at this display of anti-American disgust.
If 0bama gets on Rushmore through some stroke of affirmative action stupidity,
I will make it my personal goal to remove it - permanently.
Noooooooooooooo.............he’s defiling my name!
Can we get some cash together and sue? I am so offended by this, and I mean that seriously. This is OUR HOUSE! This house represents US (or is supposed to), and I feel slighted, offended, and insulted.
What kind of a sorry excuse for a man are you, 0bama? Many Americans and our Allies, have fought, spilled blood, and died for our beliefs and those of our Countrymen and Allies. How freakin’ dare you denigrate us like this, you stinking mutt.
Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler were married Thursday evening at the Clift Hotel in San Francisco. Howard Steiermann, a minister of the Universal Ministries, officiated at a ceremony that included Jewish traditions.
Mr. Doonan 55, is the creative director of Barneys New York. He is also a columnist for The New York Observer
Mr. Doonan is the son of the late Betty Doonan, who lived in Bangor, Northern Ireland, and the late Terry Doonan, who lived in Hove, England. His parents both worked for the BBC; his mother was a clerk in the news department and his father monitored foreign broadcasts.
Mr. Adler, 42, is a potter, an interior decorator and an owner of home furnishing and design stores bearing his name. He is also the head judge on Top Design, a reality series on the Bravo network.
Mr. Adler is a son of Cynthia Adler of New York and the late Harry R. Adler. His mother was a lawyer at his fathers law practice in Bridgeton, N.J.
Mr. Doonan and Mr. Adler met in November 1994 on a blind date arranged by a mutual friend.
The bloke who set us up just had some intuition that we would hit it off, Mr. Doonan said. And they did, for the most part. Hes very good-looking, charming and funny, he said. But ...
He badgered me with lots of direct questions, Mr. Doonan said. In England people wouldnt ask a lot of direct questions.
So he chose not to answer many of them.
He was kind of monosyllabic and a little remote on the first date, Mr. Adler said. But there was a little spark.
Enough for a second date, watching the Mike Leigh film Abigails Party (as a litmus test of his humor, Mr. Doonan said). That sealed the deal.
We have a ridiculous amount in common, Mr. Doonan said. We both hate smug people. We both rant at the same things. And, he added, We both drink a lot of tea.
