Why Are People Letting Their Kids Near Donald Trump?

Tonight the White House will be turning into a true house of horrors as throngs of kids descend upon the pearly gates of hell to do some trick-or-treating.

Last week, several kids paid a visit to hell (look at that poor little girl who doesn’t even want to make eye contact with Trump) all decked out in Halloween costumes. Of course the Great Pumpkin President couldn’t hold back on being an asshole.


“I cannot believe the media produced such beautiful children,” Trump said, since the children’s parents were journalists. Then the president of eating Big Macs fat-shamed a child.

“You have no weight problems—that’s the good news, right?” he asked one kid.

But the question remains—who in their right mind willingly subjects their children to Donald Trump? He is definitely no Barack Obama when it comes to the kids. And I can’t stop taking my eyes off the little girl harrowed by fear. She deserved better than being put in the presence of President GoblinFace.

I doubt any of our readers’ kids will be at the haunted White House tonight, but just in case, make sure you check the apples for razor blades.
