Melania Trump has been mocked for thinking about Christmas decorations... and it's not even August, yet!

The first lady, 49, took to Twitter to share photographs of herself picking out Christmas decorations in the White House while Robert Mueller was being grilled by lawmakers.

In a tweet, she wrote:

#Christmas planning has begun in the East Wing at the @WhiteHouse. 

I'm looking forward to sharing our final vision for this unique tradition in the coming months.

She also shared a snap to her Instagram account. In the pictures, the first lady could be seen looking at fake flowers and fabric swatches, beginning the process of decorating the White House for Christmas, reports the Daily Mail.

However, the timing of the post confused many social media users, who wondered why she'd be making such preparations while Mueller was being grilled over Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

It goes without saying that the tweet quickly got roasted.

Some remembered the decorations that were used last year.

Melania, it's... July.

Only 154 days to go!

Christmas came... extremely early this year...

Is this... diversionary!?

Others suggested some themes.

Well, we wonder if this year's decorations will go down better than those from Christmas 2018? After they were unveiled, Melania's 'terrifying' red Christmas trees drew comparisons to a range of horror movies, including The Shining, or perhaps the Handmaid's Tale.
