NBC’s Kristen Welker felt the wrath of the Twitter on Wednesday after she referred to Mar-a-Lago as the “Winter White House.”
During a report on MSNBC, host Chris Jansing pointed out that Welker was not reporting from the actual White House because Trump had traveled to his Florida resort for the Thanksgiving holiday.
“I am at the Winter White House,” Welker said, laughing as she corrected Jansing.
The statement did not go over well on Twitter, where commenters accused Welker of “normalizing” Trump’s branding of Mar-a-Lago.
Read some of the tweets and watch the video below.
@kristenwelker do not call it the winter White House thanks

Kristen Welker on MSNBC just said she is at th “Winter White House” with #45. Can we all agree that there IS NO WINTER WHITE HOUSE.
— Virginia Cutchin (@VirginiaCutchin) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc just heard say that Mara largo is the winter White House. There is no winter White House. There is a one White House located in Washington DC

@kwelkernbc PLEASE do not call Mar-a-Lago ‘The Winter White House.’ DJT is trying to brand/market it as such, and when you use the terminology, you’re aiding that crass effort.
— Pumpkin Pie Loving Nasty Dr Mom 😉 (@Drmomwhome) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc *DO NOT* call that the "winter white house" unless you have some indication that the property now belongs to the American people, not the dictator wannabe. Thank you.
— MutherBear (@MuthrBear) November 21, 2018
NO. @kwelkernbc It is not the ‘winter white house’ It is Mara Lago.
— Scarlet 🌊🇺🇸 (@BookDesigner321) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc it’s not the winter White House. It’s his private golf club.

Plz don't giggle when using the phrase "Winter White House," MSNBC. Hissing, rolling eyes, and miming vomiting are all acceptable, however 😳🤢
— Clare in NYC (@QueensArtWatch) November 21, 2018
@MSNBC none of your reporters should ever call Mar-a-lago the winter White House. This is a money making club not a private property like past presidents have had. You are helping Trump sell memberships. Not okay!
— AudreyW🌊🌊🌊 (@WeinsteinHouse) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc Mara Lago is NOT THE “winter White House “. It is tRumps for profit club!

Quit calling the Southern Kremlin the "Winter White House." #TrumpRussia

I find it offensive for you to call Mar-a-Lago the Winter White House.
— Terry 🌊 ⚜️ (@LiveRiveted) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc why in God’s name would you repeat the narrative that Mar a Lago is the winter White House?????? This just gives credibility to trumps stupid statements #NottheWinterWhiteHouse #NotoMarALago #TrumpisaThief @MSNBC
— the Right side of History (@tsmith724) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc It is not the winter White House. You should be ashamed of yourself for labeling it that way.
— ❄️ Patti Groshon ❄️ (@pgroshon) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc it's NOT the "winter white house". Trump does not just get to make that up. Unless he's donating Mara Lago to the people? Come on.
— Kass Montegna-Lyles (@TVteacher1) November 21, 2018
@kwelker please stop advertising Trumps property in your news reports. You’re in West Palm Beach. Not Mar-a-lago and definitely not winter white house.
— Jackie Corbiere (@jackiec70) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc with all due respect WE do not have a Winter White House. Watching you promote Trump's for profit club and push his narrative is disappointing to say the least. Do better.
— Barbara Marshall (@BBbmarsh) November 21, 2018
note to @kwelkernbc you are NOT at the winter WH. you are at a disgusting place called Mar a Lago that has nothing to do w/America or our government. please remember that.
— joeymaxlewis (@lindaplewis) November 21, 2018
THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A “winter White House”. mar-a-slumpo is a criminal enterprise location run to BILK millions of dollars from America taxpayers all to enrich head Chito criminal and his family.

Hey @kwelkernbc By the way….there is NO such thing as the Winter White House! No matter how much Donnie wants you in the press to say it to justify his weekly trips down there all winter. Why don't you just stop with this @MSNBC ? Now that was some #FakeNews
— Larry "I wish I had been Divine" Bartlett (@wackamole520) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc DO NOT call MaraLago winter White House. There is no such thing. Mar a Lago = for profit country club Trump uses to line his pockets as Prez and from which he picks unqualified paying members for critical govt appointments. C’mon, you know better. Don’t feed the BS
— eles45 (@emmalisa45) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc Please stop normalizing this administration by calling Maralago the Winter White House. Do you have any integrity left?
— Troy D Carr (@SnackyCarr) November 21, 2018
@MSNBC Kristen Walker..
STOP calling Maralogo 'The Winter White House' If it were anything to do with 'The WhiteHouse' it would be the peoples house. Maralogo is TRUMPS PERSONAL PROPERTY USED TO SCAM MONEY FROM US CITIZENS. STOP ENABLING AND LIGITIMIZING THIS SHITSHOW!
— Stacey Buckman (@westernimage) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc THERE IS NO SUCH PLACE CALLED "THE WINTER WHITE HOUSE" you are reporting from the place tr*mp uses to put US Tax Dollars into his own corrupt pockets!!! Don't dignify that FAKE title, you deserve unfollows!!! @MSNBC @ChrisJansing @SRuhle @AliVelshi
— Member Barry (@JuanDough4) November 21, 2018
Hey, @kwelkernbc ! STOP calling Mar-a-Lago the “Winter Whitehouse!” It’s a private club, NOT the People’s house. 😡
— Jolene Bray 🌊 (@jolene_bray) November 21, 2018
@MSNBC Why do your reporters keep refering to Mar Largo as the "Winter White House"? There is only one White House and it's in Washington DC. Stop following up that monster's declaration of lies. That's his house, not the house if the people.
— Wrenita (@mscod1960) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc just went down the rabbit hole. There is NO winter White House. You are reporting from a private business that is a part of a giant Ponzi scheme used to fleece the taxpayers.
— Karyn Erdman (@kepeaches) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc It’s one thing for trump to refer to Mar-a-lago as the “winter White House” but for you to declare it as such this morning is despicable. It is a resort and not any part of our government. Shame on you!

.@MNBC Mar-a-Lago IS NOT the “Winter White House” unless and until Trump has signed it over to the American people and it is open to ALL of the American people. Please stop helping this deeply #UnfitForOffice man normalize his weirdly inappropriate behavior. #Resist
— W.L. Lewis (@ArtMusicLife) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc @MSNBC Once again, Mar-a-Lago is NOT "The Winter White House"! No matter how much y'all try and legitimize it as such, it is one of Trump's personal properties. He has been robbing us all blind through the years with his travels there!!! You working for Trump or us?
— Beto Believer 🗽🇺🇸 (@dallaspamela53) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc Hi. I like you fine but please check this one item: Mar-a-Lago is not now nor will it ever be The Southern White House.
Calling it that might make the President feel good but it is completely incorrect ON MANY LEVELS. You are & should b a better journalist than that
— Shana Schwartzberg (@shanasspring) November 21, 2018
Seriously @kwelkernbc encouraging the Moron by calling it the Winter White House? This is why most have lost respect for media since you all push the Orange Shitstain BS. Shame on all of you.

@MSNBC please tell your journalist there is no "winter WH"
Kristen Welker et. al. STOP it! Unfortunately #MSM and complicit @GOP helped put the nation in danger. Report facts. Demand truth. Challenge lies. Call them lies to the face of the liars. Simple. You're welcome.
— r ball 💋 (@rsball7) November 21, 2018
Educate Kristen Walker that there is NO "winter White House"!! It's not cute to say, it's not funny – it is INSULTING to the American people!!
Stop referring to that Florida cesspool as such!!
— Karen McHugh Voted All Blue! (@mrsphilm419) November 21, 2018
@kwelkernbc Mar-a-Lago is not the “Winter White House”. It’s a golf resort #PresidentPeePants uses to shirk his responsibilities, indulge himself, make money off of his office, and bilk the American taxpayer. Very disappointing buy-in statement by you.
