Did Ivanka Trump skip Easter at the White House because she's Jewish?
Barron Trump waves while standing with US First Lady Melania Trump and US President Donald Trump during the 2017 Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the White House.
The children attending the event, some wearing red caps with Trump's campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" on them, took part in the race and egg hunt, decorated cookies, wrote thank-you letters to U.S. soldiers and participated in other fun activities.
But the one guest that truly matters on Easter did make an appearance - the Easter Bunny, or, at least, a slightly creepier, slightly more shocked, and slightly visually impaired version of the Easter Bunny. The Bunny was given a microphone and a stand but did not speak to the crowd.
Before joining the festivities with his family, President Trump thanked his wife for "working on this for a long time to make it flawless".
Military families, children from local schools and hospitals and the children of White House staff members were in attendance at the event. Unfortunately, the President committed two gaffes, not including the undercover Donnie Darko bunny.
However, Stephanie Grisham, Communications Director of Melania Trump, confirmed that this year's smaller crowd was actually part of the plan.
In the clip, Trump's wife, Melania Trump, places her hand over her heart as the anthem begins to play before nudging her husband to put his own hand up.
The event organised by the First Lady to get families together, featured games like rolling the eggs across the White House lawn with wooden spoons, making greeting cards for American troops, aside from Melania reading "Party Animals", a story by the television personality Kathie Lee Gifford while children sat on the grass.
"I just want to thank first lady Melania Trump", he said.
"As we renew this tradition, thank you for joining us", the first lady said.
"That's his Easter speech.You can see that's a guy who has no idea what Easter is actually about", said The Daily Show's Trevor Noah on Monday night.
The Easter Egg Roll dates back to 1878, when President Rutherford B. Hayes opened the gates to the Executive Mansion.
