You Call That a Halloween Costume, Bernie?

Bernie Sanders took a break from the campaign trail this weekend to go trick or treating.

The Democratic candidate was walking alongside three of his grandchildren in Lebanon, New Hampshire.

Per ABC News:

“Sunnee, 12, was dressed as the White Witch from “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.” Ryleigh, 10, wore a blue and tan “Sonic the Hedgehog” costume that included pointed ears. Grayson, 9, had on a full-body, fuzzy “Abominable Snowman” costume with a big floppy head.”

Sanders’ eldest son Levi and his wife Raine Riggs adopted their three children from China.

Sadly, Bernie did not dress up as Larry David. But that didn’t stop him from grabbing a Nestle Crunch bar on the sly to enjoy on his walk. You do you Bernie.
