Perhaps because the "War on Christmas" needs new battles, or perhaps because there is no wrong way to attack the President, Fox Nation has posted an article condemning the First Family for displaying 54 Christmas trees in the White House. The "outrage" stems from Obama allegedly being extravagant with taxpayer money, "as Americans face a fiscal cliff," on "50% more Christmas trees than last year."
It seems unlikely, however, that Obama could do anything not to anger his detractors. Fox Nation's post comes from Investors.com which did almost the same story last year. Then, there were only 37 trees...
... It is also worth noting that in 2008, then-First Lady Laura Bush told ABC News, " I think there are 49 trees in the whole house, just decorated with snow and tinsel and bright lights." It is doubtful Fox Nation found fault with that, even though it was a mere two months after the stock market crash in October 2008.
