‘MUST BE NICE’ Desperate Americans slam Jill Biden’s expensive White House decor

3 mins read

While Jill Biden decorated the White House, Americans took to Twitter to say they fear going homeless if the federal government doesn’t issue another $2000 stimulus check in time for Christmas.

The Biden administration has spent thousands on holiday decor, a figure that has further enraged those desperate for a fourth federal stimulus check.

“I’ve met several families over the past few weeks who might be homeless on Christmas because there is no longer an eviction moratorium, stimulus checks, or enhanced unemployment but sure, let’s cheer for White House Christmas decorations,” said one Twitter user in response to praise for the Bidens’ decor.

Another wrote, “Must be nice to get Christmas lights and trees up it’s going on 2 years now we haven’t been able to do anything for Christmas.”

They pointed out that it’s been a “long two years” of economic instability and asked, “why can’t Biden send out 4th and 5th stimulus check to all Americans?”

The same user replied directly to a tweet from President Joe Biden, pointing out that those on a fixed income, like seniors, deserve “to have a healthy meal and a good Christmas” and should “not have to worry about food or medicine.”

Others made light of the frustration, with one user writing, “Before this bountiful Christmas we pray oh lord that big daddy Biden passes the fabled 4th stimulus check of this most auspicious corona season.”

The first lady unveiled the official White House Christmas decorations on Monday, showing one tree with its fir covered in white doves bearing the names of US states.

The executive mansion, including the Oval Office, was decorated with 41 Christmas trees, 2,000 yards of ribbon, and more than 10,000 ornaments while the Bidens were celebrating Thanksgiving.

Nearly 79,000 lights illuminate the trees, garlands, wreaths, and other holiday displays.

President Biden and his administration have reportedly spent $41K on holiday decorations–not counting the wildly expensive National Christmas Tree.

According to TMZ, federal documents show the National Park Service spent $139K to locate and transport this year’s National Christmas Tree.

This is around $30K less than 2019’s Christmas tree, which cost upwards of $160K.

Due to the pandemic, last year’s tree ceremony was a completely virtual event. Now that restrictions have lessened and people continue to get vaccinated, the live, in-person ceremony is set to make a return for the 2021 season.

The federal documents reportedly state the National Park Service has spent an additional $171K on event support for the ceremony.
