As for costumes, FLOTUS was dressed as a cat woman and POTUS was well, a middle-aged parent. Commenting on the kids in costume, POTUS said, “They’re adorable, as is, by the way, my wife — a very nice-looking Cat Woman.” Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dressed as Darth Vader, with son Ethan; and Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, dressed as Goofy. The Obama girls (Sasha and Malia) were at the party and apparently flew under cover because no one reported a sighting of the girls in costume! Well done!
The White House turned orange today for 2,6oo trick-or-treaters. And looked almost as scary as it did when the Bush’s and Cheney’s ran the place! POTUS, FLOTUS and FGOTUS (First Grandmother) Marian Robinson handed out treats on the front steps to area school children and later joined families of military and White House staffers inside for a presidential Boo house of sorts. The treats included M&Ms (with POTUS’ signature on them), a sweet dough butter cookie from the White House pastry chef, and a bag of dried fruit (including cherries, apricots, pears, apples and papayas).
