And while the President is dropping the missiles that will probably start “World War Easy D” (sounds better than WW3, no?), his administration is dropping the ball on a MAJOR White House tradition!
Wells Wood Turning sent an urgent message to POTUS back in February, informing him that the white house was about to miss a crucial deadline for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
The company that supplies commemorative wooden eggs wondered whether the Trumps planned on continuing giving out the wooden eggs as party favors, as previously distributed by past administrations. They shared on Twitter:

In early March, the White House announced that the 138-year-old celebration was still on (April 17), and soon followed with a rush order for the wooden eggs.
But due to the Trump administration’s slow hiring, destruction-based ADD, and an absentee Melania Trump, critics are wondering if they can pull off the biggest public event of the year.
Melinda Bates, who organized eight years of Easter Egg Rolls as director of the White House Visitors Office under Bill Clinton, said she’s “concerned” for this year’s event. She 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. I’m really concerned for the Trump people, because they have failed to fill some really vital posts, and this thing is all hands on deck.”
The White House declined to provide basic information, like how many people were expected to attend. So we have a feeling Trump will put on a much smaller celebration, then lie about how it was still twice the size of Barack Obama‘s. (Just like his inauguration!)
