Leftists are so used to expecting free things they can’t even appreciate a thoughtful gift.
Curiosity broke the internet after First Lady Melania Trump gave Michelle Obama a gift wrapped in a blue box from Tiffany & Co. on Inauguration day.
Twitter was immediately abuzz with speculation about what was inside the box. Some guessed it might be a posh photo frame or perhaps a key ring.
Gifts are usually not exchanged on the outgoing president’s last day, which caused Mrs. Obama to make an unfortunate facial expression when presented with the box.

Anti-Trump Twitter trolls didn’t waste a second before taking snarky jabs at Melania’s gracious gesture.

Etiquette experts say when proffered a gift, you should respond by simply saying, “Thank you.”
The contents of the gift box remain a mystery. Tiffany & Co. added to the intrigue by releasing a short statement after being barraged with press inquiries about what was in the box.
Tiffany's statement on the box: "The White House has been a patron of the House of Tiffany & Co. since President Abraham Lincoln."

Others on Twitter echoed the sentiments of many people watching the gift exchange on TV from their living rooms.
I want a pretty blue box from Tiffany's.

Meanwhile, Fox Business News anchor Maria Bartiromo reminded “the idiot” fashion designers who refused to dress Melania Trump that the former supermodel “figured it out.”
