Biden Critics Erupt After National Christmas Tree Toppled

A rather humorous situation happened regarding the National Christmas Tree only days before the lighting ceremony was to take place.

Strong winds knocked the tree over, which led to Biden's critics using the tree falling to compare it to his presidency.

In terms of the actual tree, workers were immediately sent out to get it upright and hopefully have it repaired in time so the ceremony could go on as planned.

The Biden Presidency

A post showed up on X that confirmed the tree had gone down.

It stated, “The National Park Service has confirmed that the National Christmas Tree, where President Joe Biden was set to deliver the Christmas tree lighting, was knocked over by a significant gust of wind on the White House Ellipse.

“Emergency crews are actively working to safely lift and secure the tree back in place.”

As pictures emerged of the fallen tree, the memes and comments started to flow…

The National Park Service later posted, "The National Park Service is currently evaluating the National Christmas Tree which fell over on Nov. 28 during a strong wind gust this afternoon. As the saying goes, ‘the show must go on’ and the NPS and our event partners are looking at all possibilities to ensure a successful event this year. We will provide updates when they become available, tomorrow."

It was eventually posted by the Park Service that the lighting ceremony was to take place as expected on Thursday.

That, however, will not stop the eruption of memes that are sure to come with Biden failing on one side and the tree toppling over on the other.

Meanwhile, the Capitol Christmas Tree ceremony went on without any scheduling delays, with Speaker Johnson (R-LA) enjoying his first opportunity to host the ceremony.
