Christmas dance video shared by Jill Biden savaged as commenters draw 'Hunger Games' comparison

First lady Jill Biden shared a video featuring a performance by the Dorrance Dance tap dance company, and people on social media have been mercilessly panning the spectacle.

"A bit of magic, wonder, and joy brought to you by the talented tappers of Dorrance Dance, performing their playful interpretation of The Nutcracker Suite," the first lady's social media posts read. "Enjoy!"

But far from enjoying it, many commenters skewered the performance. Some drew comparisons to "The Hunger Games."

"The chestnuts are not getting roasted but Jill Biden is for her Hunger Games Capital District Christmas approach this year. Brutal comments," Mollie Hemingway wrote.

"Evidently the White House has become an elaborate set for the next Hunger Games movie," GOP Sen. Eric Schmitt of Missouri tweeted.

"Thanks it's the worst thing I've ever seen," Matt Walsh tweeted.

"This is a crime against Christmas," Stephen Miller declared.

"Okay, I'm onboard with impeachment," Frank J. Fleming tweeted.

"What fresh Hell is this?" BlazeTV host Steve Deace tweeted.

"Watching this is making me racist and homophobic," quipped Rob Smith, who is black and identifies as gay.

"Why would Jill Biden do this to us? This is flopping harder than Bidenomics," Jason Rantz tweeted.

In a note on the dance company's website, Michelle Dorrance describes herself as "a white tap dancer with Black cultural ancestors in a society that privileges white people and whiteness."

"It is from this place of white privilege that I invite you to join me in lifelong antiracism work. Understanding how deeply embedded white supremacy, racism, and colonialism is in our culture is paramount to understanding our role (as white people) in perpetuating it, and embracing our job to dismantle it. That understanding is incredibly important to me as a human being and to me as a tap dancer," Dorrance wrote.
