House Haunted by Officeholders

Eric J. Kos


A home in Alameda’s Gold Coast neighborhood recently set up a unique set of Halloween decorations under the banner “A Very Very Trump Halloween.” 

Nearly every figure playing a role in the new president’s administration is represented by an undead statue outside the home. The satire extends from the president himself dressed as the devil, to puppetmaster Vladimir Putin riding a skeletal horse to a three-headed Cerberus of Ivanka, Eric and Donald Trump, Jr. The elaborate display has received national attention on blogs BoingBoing and The Daily Kos. Many of the characters bear comical quips, labels or captions.
