Why Is Melania Trump Wearing a Coat to Decorate the White House Christmas Tree?
When most people decorate their Christmas trees, it’s usually a relaxing, joyous occasion for the family.
Of course, the Trumps aren’t most people.
Melania Trump sent the internet into a frenzy yesterday, November 22nd, after posting totally-not-staged pictures of herself decorating the tree with a coat draped over her shoulders.
In one snap, the 47-year-old is seen sporting a pale pink coat while adding an ornament to the White House tree.
In another, she has a tartan coat over her shoulders as she adjusts a decoration on what we think is a really fancy ginger bread house.

Side note: Does Melania know her arms are supposed to go inside the sleeves?
After she posted the pictures to her official Twitter account yesterday, the social media site was quick to pick up on the weird quirk, with many hilariously questioning if they had heating in the White House, among other things.
Here are some of the best reactions:

When putting decorations on Christmas tree I often feel the need to casually drape a cashmere coat over my shoulders, said no one ever. pic.twitter.com/EVJA02WGnaGabby Logan (@GabbyLogan) November 22, 2017
Someone ought to turn the heat up in there. Mrs Dotard is always wearing a cape, shawl or coat INSIDE. Oh wait according to her it is HER new house, she can just go over to the thermostat and tweak it up a few degrees.Aaron Roth (@aaronjroth) November 22, 2017
