Donald Trump let his crazy run free yet again this morning after he delivered a weird speech from the balcony of the White House to the crowd of children gathered for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
While past presidents have made a point to touch on the importance of the religious holiday, Trump just took the opportunity to tout himself like always — of course, with that special touch of bizarreness that only Donald Trump can accomplish — to a crowd mostly full of people that can’t even tie their own shoes yet, much less cast a vote in 2020.
Trump kicked off his speech by saying, “This is 141 years that we’ve been doing this. I don’t remember the first one,” because we all needed verifying that Donald wasn’t born in 1878.
Melania flanked the president with her usual emotionless blank stare as he praised the military band as well as the White House Historical Association. But his biggest praises were for a specific “group of people that do a wonderful job.”
And then he went on to admire egg farmers and how much they love Donald Trump. “I love them, I know they like me, too,” he said. “It’s the egg farmers of this country, the egg farmers. And they brought thousands and thousands of eggs. I don’t know if you can use them all, but I have a feeling with these young, very ambitious children, they’re going to find a reason.”
Donald wrapped up his speech by praising his own economy. “Our country is doing fantastically well. Probably the best its ever done economically. We’re setting records on stock markets, we’re setting records with jobs, and unemployment numbers are the lowest they’ve ever been,” he ended.
But his creepiness didn’t stop there.
Trump was reportedly so ecstatic this morning that he took to actually yelling in the faces of the young children that were only there to find some damn Easter eggs. As he greeted the kids with his mean-mugging wife, he supposedly reminded each of them that there was “NO COLLUSION. NO OBSTRUCTION.”
We’re betting after that speech and greeting, a lot of those kids asked to kick it at home for Easter next year.
