Anti-Trump Halloween display turns heads in Connecticut

A gigantic, anti-President Trump Halloween display is turning heads in Connecticut.

The pirate ship-themed exhibit, dubbed “The Trumpian Ship of State” and erected by Matt Warshauer, takes up nearly his entire front lawn in West Hartford.

Among the features of the potentially scare-inducing set-up: a smoke-breathing Trump holding a sign with “The Mad King” written on it, a skeleton version of former FBI Director James Comey walking the plank of the ship, gun-toting Russian skeleton sailors and a child bearing a “DACA” sign waiting to be booted off the vessel.

“I’m more fearful and disheartened for the future of this country than I’ve ever been in my life, and I’ve been studying political history for a long time,” he said.

Warshauer said it took 10 friends and family members to help create his politically charged annual Halloween display.

“As a historian, one of my goals is always to educate people and try and at least begin conversations,” Warshauer told the station.
