White House Gets Creepy for Halloween

31 October 2017

Giant spiders and massive cobwebs have taken over the exterior of Donald Trump's home to transform it into a spooky haunted mansion.

Children and their parents from more than 20 schools in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., will gather on the South Lawn for festivities starting around 5:45 p.m. EDT. It will also cater to military families and community groups.

"During this event, trick-or-treaters will enjoy seeing the South Portico decorated in spider webs, creating a festive look and feel", according to a press release from first lady Melania Trump's office.

The swamp may or may not be drained, but the White House is now strewn with spiders, bats and cobwebs.

Some on Twitter believe there was no need for the POTUS and his wife to dig out decorations, tweeting the White House was already a "house of horrors". "Fog will fill the air, and the trees and south facade will be lit with different colors throughout the night", the White House said in a statement. She wrote on Twitter, "The @WhiteHouse is getting ready for #Halloween2017 trick-or-treaters!"

With the first couple handing out "cookies created by the White House Pastry Kitchen, as well as Presidential M&M's and other candies" to school kids, Melania tweeted their preparations for the spooky occasion.

On Friday, the White House announced that they will open the South Lawn to ghosts and goblins of all ages.
