Video of a bizarre Hillary Clinton-themed “haunted house” in Bellmore went viral this week, although viewers’ reactions depended upon whether they backed the Democratic presidential nominee or her Republican rival, Donald Trump.
Brian McKibbon posted the video of the house on his Facebook page, where it got nearly three million views in a week, as of this post. Users reportedly shared the clip worldwide after conservative bloggers picked up the story.
“Scariest Halloween decorations I have seen yet,” wrote one of the more than 6,000 people who commented on the video.
The house is at the corner of Centre Avenue and Hughes Street, just north of the U.S. Post Office. The left half of the front yard features a giant red, white and blue letters spelling out “Trump USA.” The right half of the yard is adorned with placards showing Clinton in a jail cell, her head on a stick and various other images with messages critical of the former Secretary of State.
Comments on the video devolved into the type of vitriolic political debate between Clinton and Trump supporters not uncommonly seen on social media throughout 2016 in the run up to Election Day on Tuesday, Nov. 8.
No word on what type of candy the homeowners will be handing out to trick-or-treaters on Halloween, which falls on a Monday this year.
