The Absolute Worst Political Halloween Costumes

With Halloween just a few weeks away, it’s not too soon to start thinking about your costume. And with impeachment news ramping up by the hour and political emotions running high, you’re bound to see some bad ones out there this year.

We don’t just mean Trump masks, either—we’re talking downright cringeworthy, finish-your-drink-so-you-can-get-the-hell-out-of-this-party bad. And if you don’t think they’re possible, clearly you haven’t done a quick Google search for the worst of the worst.

Fake News person

Fake news costumes are nothing new, but the blazer and full reporter getup just might put this one in the bad Halloween costume hall of fame. Better idea: cover yourself in actual newspaper and set yourself on fire.

Agent Bill D. Wall

Name pun aside (it’s actually pretty okay), dressing up as a U.S. border patrol agent for Halloween has to be the sorriest thing imaginable. Except, you know, actual being a U.S. border patrol agent.

Donna T.

Is this supposed to be a female version of Trump? It may not look like him, but it sure sucks just as much.

QAnon Anything
No picture here, but you don’t need one—there’s plenty of QAnon merch on the internet for someone to deck themselves out head to toe and call it a costume.

Carry Me, Kim

Physical impossibility aside (Trump is way too fat for this), you still end up with Kim Jong-un’s head on your crotch.

Mexico Will Pay

Do I even need to write anything here? It’s a white spandex jumpsuit with a brick pattern.

Nancy Pelosi
You thought this was all gonna be Trump stuff, huh? Wrong. Nancy Pelosi is among the most insufferable costumes you can possibly wear this year. It doesn’t matter whether you really like her or really don’t—your opinion doesn’t need a physical manifestation. But you just know some dorks will create their own Patron Saint of Shade versions that’ll make us all want to rip our own eyeballs out.
