Kids that attended a Halloween party at a building on the White House complex were reportedly given the option to help “build the wall,” a clear humorous nod to President Donald Trump’s promise to finally build a wall across the United States’ southern border.
The Halloween party took place at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, and was for families of VIP guests and executive branch employees, according to Yahoo News.
Yahoo News’ Colin Campbell posted photos of the specific activity to Twitter. Check those out below:

Other activities offered were more traditional to the holiday, like a mock candy store and carnival games.
According to Yahoo News’ story, an anonymous source who attended the party said they were “horrified” by the “build the wall” display.
“Horrified. We were horrified,” the person said.
The activity asked kids to write their names on cards and then tape them to the wall, helping to construct a mock brick border wall.
The building where the party takes place contains the ceremonial office of the vice president, and he was reportedly present at the time of the party, but a spokesperson said Mike Pence did not venture beyond the second floor where his office is. The display was reportedly on the first floor of the building.
“Our ceremonial office had a plane display,” the spokesperson told Yahoo News. “We had kids build their own paper airplanes and fly them. That’s what the VP came to. He came to our ceremonial office.”
The spokesperson added that they were “not aware” of the “build the wall” display.
The White House has not officially commented on the display and it’s unlikely President Donald Trump even saw it. He was handing out candy with the first lady as part of the White House’s Halloween festivities.
While it seems like an innocent enough activity, leftists are up in arms over it:
I hope they grow up wiser to know how that’s Trump’s racist memorial. And how it was actually a fence that got easily sawed through.

The reactions go to show the further crumbling of humor on the left, which already targets any display of comedy they feel offends their sensitive natures or communist utopian fantasies.
The “build the wall” display was not the only political Halloween stunt to get big reactions. Mitt Romney’s grandson dressed up as “Pierre Delecto,” a play on his grandfather’s secret Twitter account used to slam fellow Republicans and self-promote. Though that stunt went viral as well, it got a more of a positive response.
