Children were told to ‘build the wall’ at White House Halloween party


WASHINGTON — A Halloween party on Oct. 25 at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building featured candy, paper airplanes and — concerning for some attendees — a station where children were encouraged to help “Build the Wall” with their own personalized bricks.

Photos of the children’s mural with the paper wall were provided to Yahoo News.

The party, which took place inside the office building used by White House staff, included the families of executive-branch employees and VIP guests inside and outside government. Even though many of the attendees were members of President Trump’s administration, not everyone thought the Halloween game was a treat.

“Horrified. We were horrified,” said a person who was there and requested anonymity to avoid professional retaliation.

The Eisenhower Executive Office Building stands across from the White House and houses a large portion of the West Wing support staff and is home to the vice president’s ceremonial office. The “Build the Wall” mural was on the first floor, outside the speechwriter’s office and next to the office of digital strategy and featured red paper bricks, each bearing the name of a child.

Large letters on the display spelled out “Build the Wall.” Kids dressed as superheroes and ninjas were given brick-colored paper cards and told to write their name with a marker and tape them to the wall. Alongside the paper wall were signs including one that read “America First,” a slogan often used by President Trump that had been criticized because it was  previously employed  by the Ku Klux Klan.

Earlier in the week offices inside the EEOB had been instructed to put together kid-friendly displays for trick-or-treaters. The displays were supposed to be interactive and inspiring, and all were supposed to address the party’s theme: “When I grow up I want to be…”

I think you meant exploitation, which of course is not true.

So I spelled a word wrong..OMG...

This is about Crooked donnie, nice whataboutism.

For the record, the "mother" is certifiable, but again, nice whataboutism

We are talking about Crooked donnie's scumbag administration, using children to promote a fucking wall that is totally ineffective and can be cut through with a sawsall

He is finding that adults are wise to his bs, so he wants to indoctrinate children.  If I had a child and that child was part of this, I would be going after the school administrators for sanctioning this.

Masons can make great money.  As you well know.  Actually, all of the trades can make great money and they don't require a costly four year degree to do.

Also, I can find no record of Michelle Obama ever hosting Drag Queen Story Hour at the White House. So, I have got to call "Bullshit" on that, um, bulkshit, too...
