Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations have people seeing red ― literally.

The first lady posted a video on Twitter on Monday showing how the White House will be decorated this holiday season.

Put it this way: The first family’s home is, pardon the pun, in a very red state, including the trees, which have a definite crimson theme.

The People’s House @WhiteHouse is ready to celebrate Christmas and the holiday season!

The blood red trees reminded many Twitter users of one thing: “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Hulu’s dystopian drama about a society that subjugates women.

Here Melania- someone fixed the red trees for you!

Others were reminded of a different but just as horrifying pop culture reference.

So Melania decorated the White House for Christmas – with blood red trees right out of The Shining: Holiday Version. #ThisIsReal

Others felt pity for the first lady.

You’re alone. It’s weird. ‘The People’s House’ but it’s just you—isolated, surrounded by extravagance. You’re like Marie Antoinette. It’s a rather sad and pitiable promo piece w that singular token ‘be best’ ornament making it all the more so. Really feel so sorry for you.

Some tried to put a positive spin on things.

Not a fan of the red trees. But glad they recycled Donald's old ties.

Samantha Bee appeared to be touched by the holiday spirit and made her Christmas wish to Trump.

Thanks for the holiday inspo, @FLOTUS! This year, all we want is for your husband to stop tear-gassing kids.

Getting blasted for Christmas decorations is becoming a tradition for the first lady.

Last year she was criticized for holiday decorations that seemed more appropriate for Halloween than Christmas, according to Inside Edition.
