Golfer Dustin Johnson and fiancee Paulina Gretzky were two of the many in attendance. The model shared a photo to Instagram captioned, “Mr. President”, dressed as a Baywatch lifeguard alongside her husband, friends and the ex-president.
While Trump wasn’t in costume, there were some questionable choices for the Halloween festivities.
Two guests rocked up in what appears to be a mockery of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (AOC) Met Gala ensemble. AOC famously donned a white dress to the fundraising gala earlier this year. The back of her dress was sprawled with “tax the rich” in red writing.
One woman in attendance duped the dress but replaced the word “tax” with “marry.” While the other woman’s dress controversially read, “be the rich.”

“The medium is the message,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Instagram in defence of her Met Gala outfit.
“NYC elected officials are regularly invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing our city’s cultural institutions that serve the public. I was one of several in attendance. Dress is borrowed.”
“The time is now for childcare, healthcare and climate action for all,” she wrote. “Tax the Rich.”
Inevitably, Trump’s weekend appearances did not go without controversy. The 75-year-old was spotted in a bizarre clip doing the “Tomahawk Chop” with fans – which has been slammed as offensive towards Native American culture.
