Comedian ‘Redistributes’ Children’s Candy in Hilarious ‘Obama-Style’ Halloween Prank
In an “Obama-style” Halloween prank, Fox News contributor, actor and comedian Steven Crowder paid a visit to young trick-or-treaters at a local church’s “trunk or treat” event and attempted to “redistribute” their candy to make the system more “fair.” In the video, Crowder, dressed in a monkey costume, says the stunt is an attempt to teach kids about the American tax system.
Of course, the Obama administration’s official stance on tax policy is based on the belief that the rich aren’t paying their “fair share” in taxes — despite the fact that the nation’s top 10 percent of income earners pay roughly 70 percent of all federal income taxes.
As Crowder reaches into kids’ candy baskets and gives it to other children with less candy, the idea of redistribution is met with great resistance.
“Hey, dude that’s not cool,” one kid says. “It’s not fun to take people’s candy…That’s my candy, I worked hard for it.”
“But you had more than him,” Crowder replies.
Others simply lost their cool when their candy was unfairly taken from them.
“Seriously man, I’m out of my mind… You just stole my candy!” an older kid says.
“I didn’t steal it, I’m redistributing it so it’s fair,” says Crowder. He later told the same kid of his costume, ” You didn’t build that.”
Before the prank was said and done, at least one child threatened to “call the police” over the candy theft, er…redistribution.
After being repeatedly chastised by the pint-sized trick-or-treaters, Crowder concludes that even children think it’s most fair “to be able to keep what they’ve actually earned.”
“One percenters,” Crowder says jokingly.
