People criticize the Trump family for nearly everything they do. And you know what? Most of it is warranted. They're messing up a bunch of stuff about this country. But one thing we thought they couldn't possibly get wrong is their family Christmas photo. How hard could it be?! You get the family together, you take a photo, and that's literally it. But they managed to screw it up. The second Melania shared it with the world, the Internet piled on and pointed out that there is a glaring omission in the Trump family Christmas photo. Can you spot it?
Christmas has been a fraught time for the Trumps. First, Donald Trump declared that he would save America from the war on Christmas and start saying, "Merry Christmas!" again.

Then, Melania's White House Christmas decorations were revealed, and we were given a small peek into the depths of her soul.

Like, look at it.

There's nothing like Christmas time and ballerinas to make you question every life choice you've made up until this point.
via: Getty ImagesMelania and Donald Trump have both proven that no matter how hard they try to make it seem like they're "winning" Christmas, they can't convince us. And their recently released Christmas family photo is more of the same.
Here it is, folks, the official Trump family Christmas portrait.

The thing missing from the official White House family Christmas portrait? It's Barron, of course.In case you forgot about him, (and clearly, you're not the only one), Barron is the 11-year-old son of Donald and Melania Trump. He's the first kid, and he wasn't included in the Christmas family photo!
Yes, there is a chance that he didn't want to be in the picture because who would?

Barron wasn't included in the portrait and neither were Trump's older children, so this skilled Photoshop expert added a few people to make up for it:

This Twitter user pointed out that Donald and Melania are so very tiny in this giant photo.And it's hilarious. They really seem dwarfed by those snowy trees and those giant flags. As you'll recall from that hand-size debacle, Trump really doesn't take kindly to people calling him small.
Let's all take a moment to compare the Trump Christmas photo to the Obama one:
Interesting to compare the Trumps' very formal style, and deliberate use of “Christmas” with the Obamas’ much more… https://t.co/v4XsftjMFC— Christina Wilkie (@Christina Wilkie)1513283718.0
