Maureen McCormick hosts White House Christmas special

In the liberal world of Hollywood, it’s considered “hip” and “trendy” to refuse to attend any events at Donald Trump’s White House. That’s why it came as a welcome surprise when famed actress Maureen McCormick agreed to host the White House Christmas Special for HGTV earlier this month. The 63-year-old actress is best known for playing the iconic character of Marcia Brady on the beloved 1970’s sitcom “The Brady Bunch.”

McCormick shares her favorite part of the event:

“It was magical to be in the White House and see all of the twinkling lights, ornaments and decorations everywhere – it was just gorgeous!” McCormick told Fox News. “My favorite part of filming ‘White House Christmas’ was meeting an incredibly talented woman who handmade fifty flowers from paper mâché to represent each state flower on the biggest tree in the White House.”

McCormick said she was touched when she saw a tree that was dedicated to the families who have lost loved ones in military service.

“Meeting many of the Gold Star families and hearing their stories was truly touching. We owe so much to our military and this tree is a beautiful way to honor them,” McCormick explained.

White House Honors Military Families With Christmas Decorations

HGTV said in a press release that the theme of this year’s White House Christmas decorations is “The Spirit of America.  The decor “celebrates the courageous individuals who have kept the American spirit alive.”

“For example, the famed gingerbread replica of the White House features landmarks from around the country, such as the Statue of Liberty and Mount Rushmore, while the East Room trees take inspiration from the American flag with gilded eagle tree toppers and red and blue ribbons,” HGTV continued.

In the special McCormick teamed up with co-host Alison Victoria to “craft handmade topiaries and ornaments, create a chocolate tree for the gingerbread display, and hang signs and paper flowers representing their home states on the official Blue Room Christmas tree.”

McCormick Took A Chance

Most actors would have submitted to liberal pressure. They would have refused to host a special that was to be filmed at the White House. We applaud McCormick for taking the job and going against the grain.

We hope more celebrities will take notice of what McCormick did and put their politics aside to give Trump’s White House the respect that it deserves!
