Halloween holidays politics

Political Couples Halloween Costumes

It’s been an exhaustingly political year. You can’t go a day without a new trending topic or viral video or Facebook essays from your high school classmates somehow relating to politics. And it’s annoying. But now that we’re nearing the middle of October, there’s a silver lining to the politicization of everything. These rapid fire news cycles means the well of costume ideas never runs dry. So without further ado, here are some political couples Halloween costumes that you can try with your lover, bestie or side piece.

Mike pence + Bunny

For Mike Pence, you’ll need a white wig and a blazer. For the bunny, you’ll need bunny ears and maybe a cotton ball to tape to your butt. For extra points, you can turn it into a Playboy Bunny.

Ted Cruz + Porn Star

Almost an exact month ago, porn gate occurred, and no matter where you stood ideologically, it was much needed comic relief. If you really want to go the extra mile with it, get a Ted Cruz mask or draw zodiac signs on your face. If not, a dark suit and maybe some cowboy boots should do the trick. The porn star should have a blonde wig, a red unbuttoned blouse and a blue skirt. And voila.

Pocahontas + Bernie 

For Pocahontas you’ll need a short blonde wig, a blazer, some kind of Native looking headpiece, and a fringe skirt. For Bernie you can try a Che shirt with a blazer and bald cap.

Kathy griffin + bloody trump

Who could forget Kathy posing with Trump’s severed, bloody head earlier this summer, then playing the victim when it blew up in her face? Trump just needs a Trump wig and a lot of fake blood. Kathy just needs a red wig and maybe a shirt that says “he broke me.”

Pepe + Milk

One of the most entertaining things about this year has been seeing the left lose its mind and become the conspiracy theorists that they accuse the right of being. Verified Twitter liberals came to the conclusion that milk and Pepe the frog were symbols of white supremacy earlier this year. And while white supremacists have begun adopting these symbols, it was only after the fact to mock the people that started these ridiculous stories in the first place. There are a lot of different ways to go about this. You could order legit Pepe and milk costumes. One of you could dress in all green while the other dressed in all white, and even use body paint.

Alt Right Protester + Antifa Protester

It goes without saying that this is a very controversial choice, but if you’re in the mood to push the limits, and everyone knows you aren’t actually a racist anti-semitic ethnic nationalist, it might be fun. The alt right protester will need a white polo, khakis and a tiki torch. The antifa protester should be dressed in black with a sign with a stupid slogan on it and a bandana tied around their face.

Trump Hollywood Star + Makenna Greenwald (Nothing But Respect For MY President)

The Trump Hollywood Star should wear make the star out of cardboard and hang it around their neck or draw one on a shirt. Makenna Greenwald should wear a sun hat, shorts and a shirt that says “nothing but respect for MY president.” For extra points bring cleaning products with you.

Nancy Pelosi + Chuck Schumer

Two dinosaur costumes with name tags should do the trick.

  • Shake shack opened a location near my apartment so I’m just looking at my feet while I can still see them before I gain the inevitable 90 lbs
  • Tbt to the time I searched every floor of union station for a Cinnabon then ended up paying $9 for the most disgusting steak and cheese I’ve ever encountered
  • Is it really Veterans Day if you don’t post a granddaddy pic? It’s easy to get wrapped up in feel good quotes and talking points on Veterans Day — and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a day we set aside to celebrate the men and women that decided to put service above self. But if we’re truly going to honor service and sacrifice, we don’t stop at what feels good or what’s easy to talk about — we address veteran homelessness, veteran suicide, post deployment reintegration, VA reform — and most importantly we resist unnecessary war that puts our troops in unnecessary danger. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
  • My sandwich a lil ugly just like me 😛
  • You, an idiot and a plebe: divided by politics
Us, scholars of noble upbringing: divided by Nicki Minaj vs cardi b
  • No matter what happens tonight, I don’t have to listen to/watch political ads for another year and a half and that’s something to drink to
  • I feel like God makes sure to plop a good sunset in front of me at least once a week so I don’t go postal
  • Friday I had ice cream for breakfast and ate pizza for lunch and dinner because I’m a woman in crisis but im gonna keep telling myself carb addiction beats meth addiction until I need those wheel chair shopping carts at the grocery store 🤷🏾‍♀️
