Gabriel Hays spent a Nov. 27 Media Research Center post complaining that people were criticizing Melania Trump's Christmas decorations -- specifically, the blood-red Christmas trees. He then tried for a coup de grace at the haters:
People can have their tastes all they want, and they are perfectly fine to argue about what’s elegant or not. But let’s not pretend that if this exact same style was present in the White House during Christmas 2015, that these lefty celebs wouldn’t have been saying that Michelle Obama had done an incredible job with the presentation.
And let's not pretend that Michelle Obama done that same exact style in 2015, Hays and the MRC would be attacking her the way he now complains people are attacking Melania.
But as it so happens, the Washington Post has pictures of the 2015 White House Christmas decorations:
All very tasteful, and not a blood-red tree to be seen anywhere. Even Obama's most vicious haters -- as well as the haters at the MRC -- couldn't find anything to complain about, then or now.
The MRC needs to give up on such reflexive defense of Trump -- especially when its attempt to make an Obama Equivocation lacks logic.
