And so it comes to this: Donald Trump’s White House can’t even organize the Easter Egg Roll

Easter Sunday is just days away, but apparently, President Donald Trump is worlds behind in the planning for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

The Sunday tradition is 138 years old, and as Melinda Bates, the Easter event organizer behind President Bill Clinton’s eight times as host, told The New York Times, “It’s the single most high-profile event that takes place at the White House each year, and the White House and the first lady are judged on how well they put it on.” From her perspective, the outcome of the event is an indication of the administration’s inner workings.

Obviously, to Donald Trump’s White House, this is a disaster in the making

But now let’s get to the essence of the article:

PBS Kids, which provides the costumes for the event, was also late to know of the White House’s plans. Because of the tardy requests, they will only be providing one “Sesame Street” character this year.

…The White House has also ordered half the amount of Easter eggs as President Barack Obama’s White House did in 2016 “due to the limited manufacturing window for this year’s Easter Egg Roll,” White House official retailer Lara Kline told the Times.

And we now turn to the NYDaily News:

“We never received any information for an invitation or anything this year, which we had in previous years,” Linda Erdos, the Assistant Superintendent for the suburban D.C. Arlington Public School District, told the Daily News on Tuesday.

The Washington Union Charter School had received tickets in past few years, though not every year. But school Principal Maquita Alexander said she hadn’t gotten any word this spring — or heard of any other D.C. public charter schools who’d received tickets.

That’s a sign they’re planning for fewer than 20,000 people, slightly more than half of the 35,000 that attended the Obamas’ final event.

So the Kenyan Usurper wins again, and the Russian Usurper loses bigly. Seriously, how bad at logistics do you have to be to eff-up an egg hunt? You forget to invite the kids? Really?

    He’s still going to claim that his was bigger than President Obama’s.

    If I were in charge of PBS Kids and/or Children’s Television Workshop, I’d sent the actors in costume, and during the proceedings, I’d have Big Bird make this speech:

    Hi, kida, it’s nice to be here. You’d better enjoy it, because you may never see us again. You see, President Trump wants to do away with PBS and take away all of its money. If that happens, we won’t have a place for you to see us anymore and we’ll just have to go away. That’s right, kids – Cookie Monster, gone! Oscar, gone! Bert and Ernie, never again! No more tickles for Elmo. And I guess I’ll have to join the dodos – just call me extinct. Say thank you to the president, kids!

    Here’s a fun fact. Easter is three weeks later this year – March 27, 2016 versus April 16, 2017. So even with an additional 3 weeks to plan, this administration is still able to fail bigly. What a mess.


  4. ming says:

    We have chickens and get to hunt eggs everyday. Sadly, my wife won’t let me wear the bunny costume any more. Says it scares the girls.


  5. Buttermilk Sky says:

    If this had happened under Obama, SpongeSean Squareface would be yelling about a “war on Easter” and the impending imposition of Sharia law.


  6. C Montgomery Burns says:

    It’s a shame they waited so long to organize the Easter Egg Roll.
    The only characters left are the rarely seen Fuzzy Christian Family.

    Nobody knew Easter was so HHHHAAARRRRDDDD.

    they’ve been running a background check on the easter bunny and checking all the eggs for illegal ‘bugs’ left behind by the obama administration.
