Everyone is ragging on Donald Trump’s messed-up looking Easter Bunny

Donald Trump hosted his first Easter Egg Roll as president, an annual event dating back to the Madison administration, bringing kids to the White House lawn for an afternoon of fun.

A crowd of 21,000 was expected to attend, and at the onset of the event, Trump addressed the crowd from the Truman Balcony. Accompanying him was a future meme.

Yes, that bunny standing next to the president was destined to become the True Detective season 2 of Monday, April 17 Twitter. Just about every Twitter joke was recycled in the name of this rabbit.


Lots of people used the bunny to point out Trump’s flimsy rationale for nominating some cabinet members.

Others, inevitably, referenced Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who once served as the White House Easter bunny, a fact parodied by Saturday Night Live this weekend.

The children attending the event, who are still capable of enjoying simple bliss without always feeling the need to affect a facade of ironic disinterest, probably enjoyed the bunny and his big bunny glasses.
