Is a hot dog a president? That’s the question I found myself asking after seeing the photo Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie shared on Instagram of his two daughters, 1-year-old Leni and 3-year-old Lyla, dressed as President Trump and first lady Melania Trump, respectively.

See, in this excellent story from Tuesday about the friendship Oshie has forged with 9-year-old Addy Flint, who is undergoing treatment for cancer, Oshie mentioned that his daughters would be going as a hot dog and T-Rex for Halloween. Maybe they have multiple costumes.

“Mr. President and the First Lady!!” Oshie wrote on Instagram. “P.S. All in good fun! God Bless America. #HappyHalloween.”

The Oshies don’t mess around on Halloween. Last year, Lyla dressed as a witch and Leni as her adorable pet skunk.

You don’t have to read the comments on Oshie’s Instagram post or the replies to him on Twitter to know that not everyone found Lyla and Leni’s presidential outfits “in good fun” … so don’t, and check out these amusing photos of Oshie’s Capitals teammates in costume instead.

Taylor Chorney, Braden Holtby, Tom Wilson, Brett Connolly and their significant others combined to dress as Snow White and the Seen Dwarfs.

The Capitals’ Australian forward, Nathan Walker, dressed as a kangaroo.

Defenseman Dmitry Orlov and his wife dressed as Beauty and the Beast. All in good fun.
