(Daily Beast) -- Anyone thinking of getting drunk at a White House Christmas party these next few weeks, or even President Trump on one of his nocturnal ambles, should be warned: the East Colonnade has become the most terrifying domestic space in America.
Melania Trump, with what looks like the help of Tim Burton, has designed an anti-Christmas wonderland of white branches set stark against the wall and casting creepy shadows on the ceiling, leading to—at the end of the corridor—in the East Garden Room, a traditional Christmas tree bathed in golden light.
The only thing missing is a dragon breathing fire, intent on stopping you getting your hands on a magic amulet.

Melania’s press secretary Stephanie Grisham captured the Colonnade at its most ghoulish, in the pitch-black with the white plants lit from beneath, casting the kinds of shadows on the ceiling that would definitely become spindly living fingers in a horror movie.
