Melania Trump’s Blood-Red Christmas Trees At White House Set Internet On Fire

Floats and performers thrill the large crowd as they move down Dee street during the Southland Christmas Parade in Invercargill on Saturday

Melania Trump defended her #BeBest anti-cyberbullying campaign at an event on Wednesday, telling Eric Bolling in an interview that "sometimes you need to fight back" on social media.

US first lady Melania Trump spoke to thousands of Liberty University students gathered at convocation on Wednesday to share her "Be Best" initiative on the opioid crisis that "has truly taken a hold of our country", encouraging students to change the world.

The first lady revealed the White House holiday decorations in a video Monday showing her strolling the East Wing, which is bordered by the crimson, berry-laden trees.

Trump and "Fox & Friends" co-host Ainsley Earhardt toured some of the most iconic locations in the presidential residence, and the first lady offered personal thoughts on what the display means to her.

Added @plucas1000: "This is the white house christmas decorations of 2018, and those blood-red trees look literally like out of a horror movie".

Melania Trump was wearing her coat instead of draping it over her shoulders - one of her signature fashion moves - in the 35 degree weather.

She also invited the crowd to come and view the trees for themselves.

"In real life they look even more lovely, and you are all very welcome to visit the White House - the 'people's house, '" she said.

This year the theme is either American Treasures or The People's House, depending on who you believe.

The First Lady hasn't always been able to rise above the fray.

As the crowd erupted in applause, Trump added: "In real life, they look even more attractive".

Trump's appearance at Liberty University was to share her "Be Best" initiative while encouraging the students to make a difference in the world in fighting against the opioid crisis by raising awareness and removing the stigma.

She will later take questions from the town hall audience of Liberty University students, her spokesperson Stephanie Grisham told CNN.
