4. I remember the East Wing at Christmas during the Obama years

But now? "Been away so long I hardly knew the place.......I'm back in the USSR"

And I hate to think what the buffet must consist of these days at the WH Christmas parties. Hot and cold running Big Macs and Diet Cokes, I suppose.

12. They have the nativity scene wrong

None of the figures have a machine gun slung over their shoulder.

15. Tacky - the first word that came to my mind.

Pencils that say "Be Best" (which means nothing anyone can understand) for decoration?

Such hideous taste.
