Melania Trump hit back at her White House Rose Garden critics and it didn’t end well
Melania Trump isn’t First Lady anymore but her much criticised redesign of the White House Rose Garden last year went viral all over again after NBC News presidential historian Michael Beschloss said this on Twitter.

And the former First Lady wasn’t taking it lying down. Unlike her husband she’s still on Twitter and an account called the ‘Office of Melania Trump’ – no, us neither – had this to say in response.
.@BeschlossDC has proven his ignorance by showing a picture of the Rose Garden in its infancy. The Rose Garden is graced with a healthy & colorful blossoming of roses. His misleading information is dishonorable & he should never be trusted as a professional historian. https://t.co/LU243SANF1 pic.twitter.com/PuVOSjxx5w

Except it maybe wasn’t the devastating takedown that Melania hoped it would be.
Here are our favourite things people said in response.
You demolished a gorgeous rose garden and made it look like a cheap golf course entrance.

He is trusted as an eminent scholar of US History, which I daresay, is not Melania’s field. Even in bloom, the garden is a disappointment. Sorry.

You tore down the crabapples that gave the garden it’s full dimension. What’s left is flat, bland, and as dead as your imagination, Morticia.

So the person who wore this when visiting ‘a detention facility in Texas for immigrant children who had been separated from their parents at the border’ (@TheWrap) cares about a historian’s opinion of a ROSE GARDEN?? 😑 pic.twitter.com/2fctn8WBgQ

1. @BeschlossDC IS a trustworthy professional historian.
2. Even though it’s had a year after its evisceration. it’s still a depressing unimaginative space.
3. I hope the current administration can find the time to bring some joy back into the Rose Garden.

Somebody got their flower bed feelings hurt. So of course, name calling.
Did I miss all her tweets on covid and vaccines? https://t.co/0XJHGJgNIZ

LOL that this Twitter account even exists, & LMAO that *this* is what they bother to tweet about.
I’m a professional gardener. You crammed way too many plants into a bed surrounded by boring boxwoods, & the whole design looks like something you’d see framing a cheap golf club.
