Thanksgiving is over, which means that people—including folks at the White House—have already started celebrating Christmas. On Monday, the office of first lady Melania Trump unveiled the house’s decorations to visitors.
Judy Kurtz, a columnist for the Hill, captured a very still Trump enjoying a seasonal ballet performance.

Well, enjoying is probably not the right word to use. People quickly commented on how uncomfortable Trump—or maybe it’s her body double?—looks in the video.
melania makes a lot more sense as a person if you just imagine she's a sim trapped in the real world https://t.co/vwJYQtTxlr— hannah (@hannahsmothers_) November 27, 2017
She's looking at them as if she just wandered into a nightmare from which she can't awaken. https://t.co/5SqaKAPV7x— Gary Legum (@GaryLegum) November 27, 2017
And others thought the video was straight out of a scene in a horror movie.
can't wait to see the movie this scene is from https://t.co/fRKxYBBqyt— Alexandra Petri (@petridishes) November 27, 2017
All this needs is a murder or a strange oblique flashback to be a Tarkovsky movie. https://t.co/1GauAfnO9K— Jessica Ritchey (@Ruby_Stevens) November 27, 2017
It’s a scene out of a Kubrick film. You sorta feel bad for Melania. Sorta. https://t.co/E8beOQeWJ8— DemiMF99 (@DemiMF99) November 27, 2017

The internet also mocked the White House’s Christmas decorations. One photo showed a tree at the end of a very long, dimly lit hallway with shadows of plants creating a storm-like image on the ceiling, and it quickly became a meme.
