Christmas 2017 decor OK; this year, not so hot


I stood with first lady Melania Trump’s Christmas décor she used to deck out the White House in 2017.

This year, I have to say all those red Christmas trees don’t do it for me. She told a Liberty University audience that the trees “look fantastic,” in her view. Well, that’s her belief. She’s entitled to it.

But we’re also entitled to gripe about it. I mean, the first family is merely a tenant in the People’s House. They’ll be there temporarily. Then they’ll move out eventually. We keep the White House in our possession. That gives us all the justification we need to raise a ruckus when we feel like it.

I don’t think I’ll change my mind on this matters, the way I did with the Amarillo Sod Poodles name for the city’s new Class AA baseball team that begins Texas League play next spring.

Nope. The silver décor was pretty cool. The red trees? Not good.

Nice try, Mme. First Lady.
