President Joe Biden’s National Christmas Tree in Washington, D.C. fell over on Tuesday after a strong gust of wind ripped through the area.
“The National Park Service is currently evaluating the National Christmas Tree, which fell over on Nov. 28 during a strong wind gust this afternoon,” an NPS said in a statement. “As the saying goes, ‘the show must go on,’ and the NPS and our event partners are looking at all possibilities to ensure a successful event this year. We will provide updates when they become available.”
The National Park Service later added that the tree’s condition was assessed, and a snapped cable was replaced, allowing the tree to be placed upright once again.
The toppled tree was ruthlessly mocked on Twitter, with many insisting it served as a metaphor for Biden’s administration.
“If the administration was depicted by a Christmas Tree…. This pretty much sums up the entire Biden Presidency,” Eric Trump, one of former President Donald Trump’s sons, wrote on X, formerly Twitter.
“The White House Christmas tree toppling over. The perfect depiction of Joe Biden and the state of America,” X user Kambree posted.
Newsmax host Jenn Pellegrino joined in on the mockery, posting, “Guess it will have to use the short stairs up Air Force One.”
“The White House Christmas tree blew over today… It’s the perfect reminder of how Biden has ruined everything in America this holiday season,” author Tim Young wrote.
“Biden’s White House Christmas tree got blown over by the wind. So fitting for this administration,” political commentator Benny Johnson posted on X.
“The White House Christmas tree was blown over today What a perfect symbol of what Joe Biden has done to this country with massive inflation He’s ruining people’s Christmas,” an activist known as “DC_Draino” posted.
