[]  This past Halloween gave California's wealthy liberals an opportunity to display their hatred for President Donald J. Trump and his policies.

One house in Santa Monica's "North of Montana" Avenue neighborhood -- the richest area in this highly affluent coastal city -- featured a Halloween lawn display with a Mexican Dia de los Muertos theme. The Mexican folk art even includes sombrero-wearing skeletons!




The display is very nice -- original and tasteful. We like it despite Loopy Leftist whining that sombreros are a form of anti-Mexican, cultural appropriation.

But then the homeowner added this highly politicized message to his lawn display -- a broken wall with a sign urging people to "Build Bridges! Not Walls!"



Can't we just enjoy a spooky, fun Halloween without the politics?

Farther up the street, another Halloween display featured Donald Trump riding a tandem bicycle driven by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.



The homeowner's message is unclear. Trump has been very critical of Kim. Is homeowner saying that Trump shouldn't be critical of Kim? Or that Trump is in league with Kim?

Most likely the homeowner is suffering from Trump derangement syndrome. He hates Trump so much, he's just blindly lashing out at Trump, inexplicably lumping Trump together with Kim even if it makes no sense in the current political historical context.

Wonder what will be left of this homeowner's sanity next Halloween, after living through yet another year of President Trump?
