Liberals are outraged because Melania Trump redesigned the White House Rose Garden.
Social media was filled with hateful comments towards the first lady.
One comment was made that she “cut down the cherry blossoms!”
“Those were Jackies Tree’s,” others commented referring to Jackie Kennedy.
Next, we might see a march in Washington saying “Cherry Blossom Lives Matter.”
At this point, liberals will say anything the Trump administration does is evil.
Take a look at some of the backlash towards Melania below:

The Rose Garden now looks like a cemetery, which perhaps is actually appropriate given what your husband has done to our country.

You are the worst first lady in history.
80% of Americans just hate you.
We will all remember that when you Trump did every evil thing he did you were standing right beside him cheering him on.
You supported and enabled hate, torture, death, assault, & racism. https://t.co/ykZ4xo5i2G

Biden/Harris sucks so badly that the Dems new line of attack is, “but Trump removed a tree from the Rose Garden.”

The Los Angeles Times covered this story and had these details to add:
In late July, First Lady Melania Trump announced that she would renovate the 125-foot by 60-foot plot behind the White House. On Saturday, she unveiled the changes to reporters.
The reaction was swift. And harsh.
Slate called the revamp “fit for an unchecked presidency” and “Versailles in miniature.” One political strategist lamented that “she cut down Jackie’s trees!” A young activist called former First Lady Jackie Kennedy’s Rose Garden “colorful and diverse and beautiful,” whereas “Melania just made it … white.” The backlash spanned both ends of the political spectrum.
But, at least according to Marta McDowell, author of “All the Presidents’ Gardens” and an expert on gardening history (“Emily Dickinson’s Gardening Life”), not much has changed from the traditional Rose Garden design.
“It looks very much the same,” McDowell said during a phone interview. “It’s this little diamond shape with a zigzag little parterre and it’s infilled with plants — many of which are roses.”
“People were making this out like, ‘Well, [Melania] wanted to be like Jacqueline Kennedy, and therefore she’s doing this Rose Garden,’” McDowell said. “Well, that was odd to me from the start, because this really was more President Kennedy’s.”
You didn’t renew the Rose Garden. You destroyed it! It looks awful and pathetic. Sad for our country that you got your dirty hands on this project. Start packing!

Go back to Europe.
If this is true, you destroyed the historic Rose Garden which WAS NOT YOURS TO DESTROY, for this cheap publicity stunt; better crane and long lens shots.
Get OUT of our country.
It’s bad enough you did it.
But for THIS!
You don’t deserve to remain here. https://t.co/ufUs0QThot

USA Today also spoke on the White House garden being redesigned see what they said:
The White House Rose Garden has received a facelift ahead of its starring role at this week’s Republican National Convention, complete with a subdued sea of pale roses and new walkways.
First lady Melania Trump will deliver her convention speech Tuesday night from the garden, famous for its proximity to the Oval Office. The three-week overhaul of the garden, done in the spirit of its original 1962 design, was unveiled to reporters on Saturday.
The newly renovated Rose Garden received mixed reactions after the first images surfaced Saturday.
“If this isn’t a Marie Antionette moment I don’t know what is,” tweeted New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow. “Who cares about a redesigned rose garden when we’re in the middle of a pandemic, 175k+ people are dead and millions are out of work?”
The liberals are furious.
Do you like the new White House Rose Garden?
