Millions of Americans enjoyed Halloween by dressing up in costumes over the weekend, but the Obamas were not among them. No, the first family decided to forego dressing up this year so as not to “offend” Muslims and other faiths that refuse to celebrate the “pagan holiday.”

According to Tribune, Michelle and Barack were photographed handing out candy and fruit bars to trick-or-treaters on the South Lawn of the White House. Instead of wearing a costume, the president wore a boring brown cardigan over a gray collared shirt, while his wife was pictured in a multi-colored tee with black jacket.

This is in stark contrast to last year, when Michelle Obama was pictured in a creepy “sexy cheetah” costume.

It’s sickening that the Obamas submitted to Muslims once again this weekend by refusing to celebrate one of America’s most beloved holidays. If Obama gets his way, holidays like Halloween will be banned soon enough and we’ll all be celebrating Ramadan…
