Trump shakes a snake staff at 'fake' news while 'casting a spell' at a Halloween party
On Sunday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania held a Halloween event at the White House. They invited children of military families and local schools.
President Donald Trump stood in front of the White House with First Lady Melania Trump to meet children who they handed candy to. A little girl wearing a pharaoh costume came by to get some sweets but instead she got more than she bargained.
The president borrowed her serpent staff from her and waved and pointed it in the direction of the media. Melania stood next to him laughing at his antics.

People on social media replied commenting that he seemed to be casting a spell on the media. He and Melania were distributing chocolate bars and Twizzlers to the children.
After the children were gone the president took to Twitter to attack the media again. He posted:
“The Fake News is doing everything in their power to blame Republicans, Conservatives and me for the division and hatred that has been going on for so long in our Country. Actually, it is their Fake & Dishonest reporting which is causing problems far greater than they understand!”
For the Halloween event at the White House, the presidential couple entered the South Lawn on an orange carpet to the music from “Thriller.” They stayed outside for a little more than an hour with the children and their parents.
The “Harry Potter” theme music played, a fog machine pumped smoke, pumpkins were seen on hay bales, and the columns of the White House were decorated as corn stalks for the event. Donald and Melania handed out the sweets which the children put in orange plastics bags stamped “Made in the USA” all along the top.
The children came dressed as superheroes, princesses, unicorns, astronauts, the SWAT, and one wore a Stay Puffed Marshmallow man costume. Donald chose to not speak to the press on the day.

The children were also able to see the Presidential Limousine which known as “The Beast.” The White House also had a hay bale maze for the little ones to explore.
The event took place a day after the mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. The president stirred up controversy by joking about his “bad hair day” and tweeting about the World Series, just hours after a gunman slaughtered 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue.
He effortlessly looks like a villain. Amazing.— RLV 💥 (@fullframepapi) October 29, 2018
He joked to young farmers at the convention in Indianapolis on Saturday morning that he almost canceled the event because the weather had wreaked havoc with his hair, instead of the massacre in Pittsburgh.
The presidency is already scary enough without throwing Halloween in the mix!— Petunia (@13craftymom) October 29, 2018
Later in the evening, he took to Twitter while watching Game 4 of the series between the Dodgers and the Red Sox. In his post, he questioned the pitching changes.
On Tuesday, the president and the first lady planned to visit Pittsburgh but the city’s mayor said they should wait. The mayor cited security reasons and sensitivity for those who were mourning.
Jewish leaders and thousands of supporters have called upon the president to denounce white nationalism and asked him not to visit their community.
