The theme of this year's decorations, chosen by the First Lady, is "Time-Honoured Traditions" - a nod to 200 years of festivities at the White House.

Ballerinas perform in the Grand Foyer alongside Christmas decorations at the White House in Washington, DC, November 27, 2017.

President Trump has made it clear that he's no fan of CNN.

The White House Christmas party is scheduled for Friday at 2 p.m. ET.

And this Christmas decor debate certainly isn't the first time that Melania's posture or fashion choices have either come under fire or elicited a grandiose amount of patronizing sympathy - two very different sentiments that have each inspired backlash in subsequent hot takes about the first lady's degree of agency over her own life. 'It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S to the world.

"At CNN we dodge bullets to bring you the news", tweeted Christiane Amanpour, CNN's chief global correspondent. Many people have commented on social media networks that they are happy to see the White House Crèche, or Nativity set that has been a tradition at the White House for 45 years.

Trump declared at the Values Voters Summit in October that the phrase would be brought back. #FactsFirst, ' the CNN PR team tweeted.

"We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me)". They are all bad.

'Bah, humbug!' It says to all of that chicanery, it will make no amends with the feared and despised Trump administration, what with all of its talk of "fake news" and triggering Anderson Cooper with the hurling of much paper towels.

Trump also tweeted, on Monday, an announcement he wanted to start a new TV trophy show, to dispense his Fake News Trophy.

The Justice Department allegedly told AT&T that the $85billion merger would only be approved if it sells off CNN's parent company or DirecTV. It's signed by President Trump, Melania, and their son Barron.

Her theme of "Time-Honored Traditions" is meant to pay homage to "200 years of holiday traditions", says HouseBeautiful.
