Hillary Clinton suffered a devastating defeat to President-elect Donald J. Trump. But as a consolation price, President Barack Obama has given her a very visible spot among the White House Christmas decorations.
As The Hill reported:
An official portrait of the former first lady and Democrat presidential nominee is hanging in the Cross Hall of the White House, displayed alongside an array of bells, baubles and other holiday décor.
ITK spotted the portrait, one of several paintings of presidents and first ladies adorning the walls at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., when the White House opened its doors Tuesday for a sneak peek of its annual Christmas decorations. The 2003 painting by Simmie Knox shows a smiling Clinton sporting one of her signature pantsuits, standing by a table with her book, “It Takes a Village,” by her side.
Hanging in the background is the ghost of Democrat presidential campaigns past! LOL:

In addition to a picture of Hillary Clinton, there are 56 gingerbread houses in the White House to represent each state and territory of the United States.
Also, a tree with a gold star will represent and honor military service members and their families.
