In what can only be described as evidence of having the worst judgment possible, staff members of an elementary school dressed up as President Donald Trump’s “border wall” as a group Halloween costume.
Some staff members of Middleton Heights Elementary School in Middleton, Idaho, dressed up in costumes depicting Mexican stereotypes, including wearing sombreros, carrying maracas, and wearing brightly colored ponchos.
Others were the literal border wall itself. The border costume appears to be made out of large pieces of cardboard, colored to look like bricks. In case they were worried about ambiguity, they actually added letters reading: “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” in red, white, and blue.
The kicker? This didn’t go viral because the pictures appeared on social media after a private party. This went viral because the staff wore this costume in the school they teach in. Seemingly, in front of their students. And the pictures that quickly caused outrage? They weren’t leaked or sneakily captured by a concerned parent.
The two pictures in question went up on the school district’s Facebook page. They were removed quickly, but the damage was already done.
