How can anyone really claim, with a straight face, that this is supposed to be a Christmas tree.
Of course it was meant to be an ‘UP YOURS’ to the French. That is a shame.
Having been closely associated with France for 18 years, and having lived in Paris for a year, I am well aware that there is no love lost between the French and the Americans. But this was below the belt — really. This was just plain crude. Plus for the very chic, very elegant Place Vendôme. This was really stupid. Did no credit to the U.S. and just inflamed more animosity.
This is crazy. Upsets me. Paris is a beautiful place and the French are ‘OK’ if you interact with them openly. They can even be real nice.
