This Trick-or-Treater Dressed as a Lame Duck Totally Won President Obama's Halloween Party

Oct 31, 2016

President Obama met a reminder of his future on Monday, when he greeted a trick-or-treater dressed as a "lame duck" — a label the President will have to adopt next week, once the election ends and the next President is chosen.

The child, dressed in a duck costume wrapped in a bandage, was seen standing with Obama during the annual trick-or-treat event held on the White House South Lawn.

Area students visited the White House for trick-or-treating and shows during its annual Halloween party. The President and First Lady Michelle Obama handed out candy and mingled with kids, even dancing to Michael Jackson's "Thriller."
