Holidays at the White House are national celebrations. The staff went all out for Halloween Monday. While those inside the White House were doing their best to stem put out the political fires resulting from Mueller’s indictment of former Trump associates, the mood outside was suitably festive.
Kids from local schools were invited, as were some children of military families in the area.
The president was passing out homemade cookies (a clear violation of Halloween safety standards) and something that has been labeled “Presidential M&Ms.”
There was a breif moment of panic as the President and First Lady were attacked by a velociraptor.
