President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump proved on Thursday they don’t quite understand how to hand out candy to certain children on Halloween.

While giving candy to young trick-or-treaters at the White House, the first couple were approached b a child dressed as a minion from the Despicable Me film franchise. Up until then, Donald and Melania Trump hadn’t had any issue with the distribution of sweets and had placed candy in each kid’s bag. However, once the child wearing the minion costume showed up, the pair seemed utterly confused about where to place a Hershey’s chocolate bar.

Donald Trump reacted by placing the candy bar on top of the child’s head, and Melania copied her husband’s move. Unsurprisingly, both chocolate bars quickly fell off the child’s head and a woman — presumably the youngster’s mother — picked it up from the ground.


Users on Twitter were quick to poke fun at the moment with memes, GIFs and other jokes:

This is the Trump’s third time hosting a Halloween celebration at the White House. According to CNN, the children who attended the festivities were kids from military families, while others were local elementary school students. The news network reported that the children waited for over an hour to partake in trick-or-treating.
