One of the best Halloween costumes this year came from Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren — who dressed up as anti-Trump comedian Kathy Griffin.
Griffin came under fire from both Republicans and Democrats last year for holding up a bloody, decapitated mannequin’s head resembling President Donald Trump in a picture she posted on social media.
Since then, Griffin has made the news for several other stunts and outrageous political statements, but nobody has forgotten about her awful photo with the decapitated head.
The huge controversy that surrounded the photo as well as its political relevance made Griffin the perfect subject for Lahren’s Halloween costume this year.
“Happy Halloween from all of us infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome!” Lahren said on Instagram with her reenactment of the Griffin photo.

He ruined me. Sometimes I do things and you may wonder, Kathy, where is your head at? Well folks, I’m taking matters into my own hands. Yes, some may say I am looking more and more like Ronald McDonald by the day and you’re not wrong. BUT I will stand here with my head held high! Happy Halloween from all of us infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome! MAGA! #TeamTomi #happyhalloween #KathyGriffin #PrayersforRonald #tagKathy
Griffin, who is likely desperate to move past the controversy, went ballistic on Twitter.
“Gosh you are just so original (Tomi Lahren)! I thought images like this one incite violence! At least that’s what you and your colleagues at (Fox News) have told me for the past year and a half. I’m busy on tour right now or I’d dress up as you: a dumb, racist, and talentless hack,” Griffin said.

This seems like a hastily written tweet by someone who is freaking out.
But Griffin looked over one important detail.
Lahren’s costume couldn’t be considered “inciting violence” like Griffin’s because Lahren’s photo used a clown mask in place of the decapitated, bloody, effegial head seen in Griffin’s original photo.
In addition, making false accusations of “racism” is such a boring, overused left-wing response.
Based on Griffin’s response, you can tell she was bothered by Lahren’s costume. She should have taken a deep breath instead of responding.
Of course, Lahren shot back with a clever response.
“You’re right Kathy, if I was trying to impersonate you I should have worn the clown mask instead. That’s my bad! Happy Halloween!” Lahren wrote..

Lahren’s Halloween costume has to be one of the best costumes this year simply because of Griffin’s reaction.
