If you haven’t been following the news lately, it’s an election year! As the two candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, face off in heated debates, you can show your support (or mockery) for the presidential candidates. Each of you can wear one of the over-the-head masks, but be sure to complete the look with the appropriate attire. If the two presidential candidates don’t fit your liking, there are plenty of political figures (masks) to choose from.
