First lady Melania Trump was definitely in the holiday spirit when she posted a cheeky selfie on Twitter this morning, sharing a picture of herself using a Santa hat filter and shimmering reindeer with the caption “#MerryChristmas.”

Surely, Melania was expecting some heartfelt Christmas messages, but much to her surprise, America wasn’t really in the giving mood.
Some pointed out the ‘classiness’ of the photo, often comparing it to former First Lady Michelle Obama:
Disgraceful for a First Lady, Christmas or not. You look like a model on a photo shoot for the front page of Hustler. I’m sure the elderly and poor will appreciate this photo given how you and hubby don’t care about them, only your millionaire friends at Mar-a-Largo.

Soft porn FLOTUS.
How far have we fallen from class, grace and dignity.
Michelle, we miss you so much. 😢 pic.twitter.com/2UdKBUq637

Seriously? How can you make Christmas look sleazy?

Others questioned why she would even post such a selfie in the first place:
I was going to be nice at Christmas and then my daughter showed me this tweet. You are just as bad as your husband. You belittle the office of FLOTUS everyday. First with the whole idiotic Non Bullying Platform. You’ve done nothing and you’ll do nothing about it.

Was she hacked? Did the First Lady really post this on Christmas when she could have used her platform for a much higher, more inspiring humanitarian purpose? Serious question.

Do you actually think this is a cute pic melania? You are such an embarrassment. Please go away and leave us all alone. We don’t want to see or hear you. You are a joke.

Nevertheless, waking up on Christmas morning knowing that the Trump family still occupies the White House is such a disappointment. Plus, Melania and the rest of the Trump clan are still wasting hard-earned taxpayer money on Christmas at Mar-a-Lago. So, you can’t really blame Americans for bashing this photo.
