These Scary Trump Administration Halloween Decorations Will Make Your Week

Time has a way of distorting under the Trump regime. Weeks, days, and months start to blend together, as the entire country gets caught up in a 24-hour news cycle constantly swirling around the president’s latest outlandish words or deeds. With that in mind, one could hardly be blamed for forgetting that Halloween is rapidly approaching.

One couple in Alameda, California certainly haven’t forgotten, and have been methodically preparing their house with decorations that represent perhaps the scariest thing in the country right now: the Trump administration. Cathy and Dan Balsam have adorned their residence with horror versions of many Republicans.

“These decorations are the scariest thing we could possibly think of,” the Balsams said, according to Boing Boing.

Photos of the decorations were taken by Rusty Blazenhoof.


Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was displayed as Frankenstein’s monster, with a word bubble referencing the FBI morning raid on his house in July.


Trump’s three bumbling children were represented as Cerberus, the three-headed dog from Greek mythology that guarded the entrance to the underworld.


Trump’s former Chief Strategist and current Executive Chairman of right-wing propaganda rag Breitbart News was dressed as the grim reaper, a reference to SNL’s depiction of him.


Brain surgeon and Trump’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson was cast as a brainless, headless horseman.


CNN is shown in a cage, representing Trump’s constant attempts to silence and discredit the network.


A ghoulish Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s former campaign manager, is shown hiding under her umbrella beside a reference to her absurd pronouncement that microwaves can be used to spy on people in their homes.


A row of headstones shows ousted Trump officials. Disgraced former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, Trump’s former deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka,  ex-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, and fired White House Press Secretary Anthony Scaramucci are all buried beside each other.


Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is a witch, spouting her insane idea that guns in schools could ward off bears.


Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao makes a joke about Trump’s penchant for betrayal.


Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who it was recently revealed called Trump a “f–king moron” in private, is a scarecrow.


Trump’s favorite gaggle of tv blowhards are depicted as three witches, a sly reference to Macbeth, appropriately a story about the rise and fall of a tyrant and the risks of power and ambition.


Gary Cohn, Trump’s  chief economic advisor is a zombie. Cohn recently made the utterly clueless statement that $1000 is enough to renovate a kitche or buy a new car.


Trump’s White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, who is rarely seen in public or addressing the press, is depicted as a silent undead creature.


Pathological liar and current White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is shown at her podium.


Jared Kushner, the pampered senior advisor and Trump son-in-law responsible for forging a lasting peace in the Middle East is shown mixing military wear and a formal suit, a reference to the preposterous outfit he wore during his trip to Iraq.


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is characterized as a turtle, probably just because he actually looks like one.


Melania Trump is a featureless doll begging for help.


Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin is a skeletal magician.


U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is a ghost shown with one of her more disgusting comments floating above her.


Vice President Mike Pence refers to his wife as “mother.”


Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price was forced to resign when it was revealed that he had been wasting taxpayer money to take trips on private jets.


Scott Pruitt, Administrator of the EPA is depicted offering coal slurry, a reference to his push for laxer environmental regulations.


Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, who actively worked to get Trump elected, is shown riding a skeletal horse.


Speaker of the House Paul Ryan brags about trying to steal people’s healthcare.


Attorney General Jeff Sessions is displayed as a skeletal goblin in a dunce cap.


Sean Spicer tries to get out of a coffin.


Trumpcare, which has been killed in Congress multiple times, is also shown in a coffin.


Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross whines about banking regulations.


Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke is shown displaying disdain for the environment.


And then, of course, there is Donald Trump himself, depicted as Satan.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!
