And it's horrible.

Primary for 3 weeks at 65 degrees in a temp controlled kegerator.
Tasted a sample at 2 weeks, and it tasted like bubble gum.

Moved to secondary tonight...horrible bubble gum flavor.
Was supposed to be my halloween party beer.

Thoughts as to why this happened, will it recover, chuck it?

Assuming you used White labs Wit yeast...

It definitely gives off a bubble gum ester. When I brewed that beer it had a prominent bubble gum aroma out of primary, but after bottle conditioning it was gone. I fermented at 68-70F.

Wyeast Belgian Wheat 3942 smack pack.

I keg my beer, should I skip the secondary and put it into the keg for conditioning now? It needs to be ready for Halloween.
