President Trump was his ever-playful self at a White House Halloween event, using a serpent staff from a children’s costume to wave at the fake news media.
The President and First Lady Melania Trump were handing out Halloween treats when two little girls, one dressed in an Egyptian-style costume, approached.
Trump borrowed the girls’ serpent staff and waved it toward the media section as if to cast a spell.
“Do you know what I’m doing?” Trump asked while Mrs. Trump laughed.

Trump wards off the fake news with the serpent staff
It’d take one heck of a spell to convince the fake news media to start reporting on news stories accurately but hey, we suppose it was worth a try.
Check out Trump’s serpent staff ‘trick’ below …
After the Halloween antics, President Trump more seriously denounced the liberal media for sowing division in our country.
“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,” he said, explaining that it’s actually their faulty reporting that is causing problems.
He blasted them yet again on Monday morning, reiterating claims that those who report inaccurate information or withhold information are the “enemy of the people.”
There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame…

Trump loves joking about the media on Halloween
In 2017, the President and First Lady were in great spirits as they handed out candy at a similar event for the children.
Even then, Trump couldn’t help but have some fun at the expense of White House reporters, cracking jokes with some of their kids during the festivities.
“I cannot believe the media produced such beautiful children,” Trump laughed. “How the media did this, I don’t know.”

The only thing that would make this event better is if President Trump were to completely troll the media and their liberal friends by wearing this amazing costume while he hands out the candy.

Last October, Hillary Clinton was asked what she planned on dressing up as on Halloween, responding that “I’ll maybe come as the president.”

Perhaps she can do that this year. Let’s let her have her fun. Halloween is, after all, that one day each year where we pretend to be the one thing we will never actually be.
