satire - Melania Trump Criticized For Decorating White House With Skulls Of Her Enemies

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Melania Trump is causing controversy yet again, this time for decorating the White House with the skulls of her decapitated enemies.

While past first ladies have decorated the White House with traditional Christmas wreaths, trees, holly, and lights, Trump opted to mount the heads of her slain foes throughout the executive residence "as a warning."

"Did she go too far?" one pundit on CNN pondered. "I gotta say, these heads don't exactly say 'peace' and 'love' like a good, old-fashioned wreath would, you know?"

Speaking to reporters, the First Lady commented, "The skulls bring out the festive joy of the holiday season in our decor. We're reminded to treasure what we have when we see the skulls of our conquered foes every time we walk through these sacred halls."

"It's all to point us to the reason for the season," she added.

When asked what the "reason for the season" is, she stated, "To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women."

I wasn't aware any of her 'enemies' were dead.

So, I was looking for names.....

Hither came Melania the Slovenian, raven-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under her sandaled feet.

Fake news? I’ll bet she didn’t put a Mao Zedong ornament on it like Michelle did.

I’d take that over Christmas ornaments with Mao Zedong on ‘em.

Sarcasm? Maybe from Melania.

However, I can see President Trump wholeheartedly supporting this.

Yeah, but that’s because she was trying to keep hers hidden.

Her enemies will only descend into anonymous infamy.

Slovenia used to be part of Austria-Hungary.

One story is that their shape was meant to resemble the Turkish crescent moon, to celebrate one of the victories of the Hungarian army over the Turkish army.
