Melania Trump took over the Christmas spirit duties that her husband completely abdicated today, tweeting out this telling photo showing the first couple having “fun” tracking down a bearded foreigner surreptitiously entering unaware Americans’ homes while they sleep.
With the two facing away from each other and speaking into their secure land-lines to better access the intelligence agencies’ tracking data presumably, the fun was practically palpable.
The denizens of the internet took a break from their holiday wrapping to react appropriately:
Your body language in this photo shows us everything we need to know.

I wonder if you'll go to jail too, or just your husband

You are both skeevy grifters and criminals. I wish you a merry impeachment, ASAP.

"@POTUS and I had fun helping children track #Santa tonight." Do you understand how wrong this photo and your comment is? NINE MILLION children and their families waiting for full #Chip coverage. BTW, nice pic of two people who despise each other.

"Help" is the last thing you selfish people do for ANY CHILD IN THIS COUNTRY.

Nothing like a perfect tweet to kick off Christmas eve.
If that bearded foreigner shows up your house, he’s probably hungry after a long journey. Make sure to leave some milk and cookies for him to snack on, and I’ll bet he’ll be kind enough to leave you a gift in gratitude. We hear that he appreciates those Americans who open their arms to strangers and treat them with kindness and love, just like the man whose birthday the holiday tomorrow celebrates.
