Blinken Dresses Son as Zelenskyy, Daughter as Mother Ukraine for Halloween

'Wait, that's NOT really Zelensky? Wow. I am shocked. They are the same height...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) While Israel’s war with Hamas may be getting all the headlines recently, the endless quagmire in Ukraine appears to remain No. 1 in the heart of Secretary of State Antony Blinken and his family.

Despite Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy having been rocked this week by serious allegations of corruption from government whistleblowers with knowledge of his administration’s inner workings, Blinken showed his solidarity by dressing his children up to honor diminutive leader and his war-torn nation, the New Voice of Ukraine reported.

While visiting the White House for a Halloween party, Blinken’s 3-year-old daughter, Lila, wore a blue-and-yellow ensemble appearing to represent the symbolic embodiment of “Mother Ukraine.”

Meanwhile, his 4-year-old son, John, was dressed in olive-colored military garb as none other than Zelenskyy himself.

Naturally, some wondered if the tyke were not, in fact, the 5-foot-7 Zelenskyy coming to receive a handout of his own.

The Biden administration is currently locked in negotiations with fiscal hawks in Congress over a new spending package for Ukraine, which already has received at least $88 billion in 2023 alone on top of an estimated $100 billion the year prior.

It is now seeking another $60 billion—despite the fact that some experts believe Ukraine may already have lost the war and that Zelenskyy is only extending it to keep the money flowing.

That price tag is more thatn four times the amount Biden proposes spending on support for Israel—whose war effort is also saddled with numerous conditions, unlike Zelenskyy’s.

During Tuesday’s Halloween festivities, the youngsters greeted gleefuly by President Joe Biden, who exercised remarkable restraint in not sniffing either of them, while giving out what appeared—according to some Twitter users—to be candy cigarettes.

First lady Jill Biden, a self-described reading specialist, used the occasion to emphasize her academic credentials, dressing up as Willow the First Cat.

She told reporters later that she hoped to inspire families to read books together to celebrate the holiday.

“From famous literary tales and ghost stories to the spooktacular thrill of reading, we hope families and children pick out their favorite Halloween book, grab a flashlight, and take a moment to enjoy storytime together,” she said.

Earlier in the evening, Dr. Jill had read a book, Ten Spooky Pumpkins, to the children in attendance.
