Many Americans are only too happy to see the end of 2020. It’s the year of the Wuhan China Virus, Lockdowns, Rigged Elections, Complicit Media soft balling Basement Biden. It’s not been a great year but at least we have the iconic 2020 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree’s grand debut to look forward to.
The crowds waited in anticipation in Midtown Manhattan but then learned that the year’s disappointments were not done. The Rockefeller Center appeared to be in on the joke.
In a tweet capturing a majestic tree, the caption stated: “Say hello to the 2020 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree! Hailing from Oneonta, NY, this Norway Spruce will arrive at Rockefeller Center this Saturday, November 14 to kick off the holiday season.”

A video was also shared showing the beautiful tree being harvested and loaded up for the trip to New York City.
Even wrapped up, the tree still looked magnificent.
See you soon, NYC! 🎄 pic.twitter.com/j5k6vYJGvS

But what was this? The tree arrived in midtown Manhattan and was unfurled… and, and… huh? Has it contracted COVID-19 along the way?
…not that the Rockefeller Center was deterred!

Sensitive to the criticism, the center would later respond to suggest the two day drive may have had some effect on the tree’s appearance, adding that lights will make all the difference in the world.
“Wow, you all must look great right after a two-day drive, huh? Just wait until I get my lights on! See you on December 2! 😉,” a tweet declared.
As for the criticism, former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik won the internet with his assessment, which dinged Comrade Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“What is this, a joke? This is the Rockefeller Christmas tree for 2020,” Kerik tweeted. “It depicts @NYCMayor‘s city as it stands today: broken, empty, drained of its life, by failed leadership and incompetence.”
