Showing photos of children dressed as Trump's toilet with flushed documents, the physical depiction of inflation, and more co-host Kayleigh McEnany responded, "How sick is this."
Julie Banderas added that she thought "it's pretty disgusting that these parents would allow their children to be marketed this way."
\u201cFox's Outnumbered is absolutely spitting mad about that kid on The View wearing a Trump Toilet costume.\n\n"Does a child, especially that age, know what surveillance is?! What executing a search warrant is? Do they know ANYTHING about what they're being trotted out to represent?!"\u201d
Journalist Justin Baragona followed up his tweet by claiming that right after the hosts of Outnumbered roasted the political Halloween costumes, an advertisement for a "kid's guide to Trump" appeared.
\u201cYou can't make this up.\n\nAfter Fox News runs a segment railing against The View for politicizing and indoctrinating children, they immediately run an ad for Mike Huckabee's "Kids Guide to President Trump"\u201d
Although not everyone was offended by the political kids' costumes, The View did receive negative press coverage for depicting the Oscar slap between Chris Rock and Smith.
\u201cI\u2019m a fan of @TheView but this costume is disturbing. Someone was assaulted! And just because you preface the costume by saying \u201cwe do not want to endorse violence of any kind\u201d doesn\u2019t absolve you. You are promoting violence & using a child. Shame!\u201d
While unveiling the costume on the show, wardrobe supervisor Ashley Alderfer Kaufman told viewers, "We do not want to endorse violence of any kind but we couldn’t help but talk about one of the hottest topics of this year."
