Hillary Clinton seemed dismayed by a question.

But asked Monday night during an eventuality compelling her new book what she was going as for Halloween, she said, “I have to start meditative about it. … we consider we will maybe come as a president.”

It wasn’t transparent either she meant President Trump or only “as president.”

That got laughs. But if you’re like Clinton and maybe pulling on a Trump facade or a Sean Spicer pulpit or maybe even a Hillary Clinton pantsuit for Halloween Tuesday, you’ll be like roughly 2 percent of a population.

Political costumes will make adult 2.2 percent of adult costumes this year, according to a survey. That’s down from 2.7 percent final year. But, of course, that was an choosing year.
