President Trump is trying to drown out impeachment talk with Christmas cheer.
This year, the Trump family isn't just handing out Christmas cards to all the members of Congress, regardless of their party. It's handing out a smaller card packed inside a bigger card... along with the president's six-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in which he bitterly attacks impeachment.
True story: there is a White House staffer going around the Senate delivering to each office, as a package, the incoherent, scathing Pelosi letter AND...wait for it...a giant 16x12 White House Christmas card (along with, implausibly, a second smaller Christmas card).

What's perhaps most mysterious about this move is the signatures included on the card(s) from Trump, first lady Melania Trump, and their son Barron Trump. Melania's signature is sharp and zigzaggy — just like Trump's right next to it. But lay your conspiracy theories aside. That, according to many sources and Google image results, is literally just what her signature looks like.
