A Twitchy reported earlier, the president and first lady’s official Christmas portrait has been released, and of course the anti-Trump crowd had a fit. But a little TDS means more coming from a journalist like former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien, who got her on-air talking points straight from Talking Points Memo. It seems the Trumps “forgot” their kid.
They forgot to include their kid. https://t.co/30unhnnCea

Yeah, it took about 10 seconds to pull up that photo. And that’s not the only one:

That photo accompanied a piece in Elite Daily explaining the one big difference between the Obamas’ Christmas portrait and the Trumps’, and it wasn’t that the Obamas had included their kids:
However, it’s worth noticing one key area where their two portraits aren’t exactly the same. Donald and Melania are standing shoulder to shoulder, holding hands, facing directly forward to the camera in a more formal stance, with a full picture of the hall behind them. Comparatively, Michelle and Barack stand close together at an angle with their arms around each other, and the camera is set in a close-up and more intimate shot.
That’s some hard-hitting journalism, but we do appreciate the writers acknowledging, “Honestly, whatever you think of the Trumps or their decor, that’s a nice photo.” See, that wasn’t so hard, Soledad.
Donâ€™t be so shallow and nasty. Maybe they donâ€™t want the exposure. https://t.co/gbw4PqEvZk

Can you blame them?
The EFF is wrong with you?! Ana Navarro gives Scrooge a run for his money with nasty tweet about the Trumpâ€™s Christmas portrait https://t.co/SlIZcKWsI4
