Earlier this year, First Lady Melania Trump decided it was time to completely revamp the White House Rose Garden, even though no one had complained about the one that had been there since the late Jackie Kennedy had it installed in 1961.
Reaction to the redesign was not good, with Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos noting that Melania had “ruined” it:
It’s been ruined. https://t.co/zHGsR0ognR

And now Melania is at it again in the Rose Garden, adding a piece of sculpture that has once again led to ridicule for her:
IS SHE TAKING IT WITH HER WHEN THEY GO ? 🤔

What in the hell is that? It looks like a Transformer lost an arm or took a dump and forgot to clean up. There’s modern art and then there’s modern WTF?!
Twitter quickly lit up with reviews of “Floor Frame”:
It’s hideous. Of course Melania likes it. I hope the Bidens get rid of it. https://t.co/EYPJoU5vE1

She had to have Googled
“Ugliest sculpture imaginable for lawn.”
Price is NO object, the people of US will be pay.
Actual name of sculpture: Ben Dover

Coincidentally, we put together the same IKEA project last night, but I believe ours came out better. pic.twitter.com/FsQzsmfBse

Melania tore out the real trees to replace it with a sculpture that represents trees. Trumps destroy everything and everyone they encounter. Their family crest should just be a wrecking ball.

Why not just tip a barrel of trash out onto the garden? It’ll go better with her redesign.

There’s an old saying that certainly applies to everything Melania Trump does, and it goes like this: Your taste is in your ass.
