Even Mother Nature has had it with politics in Washington.
On Saturday, high winds brought down America’s Christmas tree, snapping the 47-year-old, 42-foot high Colorado blue spruce near its base and sending it toppling to the ground on the Ellipse near the White House.
“We’re glad that there were no injuries,” National Park spokesman Bill Line told Washington TV station WRC.
Line said don’t worry. A new tree will be in place by next Christmas.
