If you haven’t heard, the annual White House Easter Egg Roll is shaping up to be memorable for all the wrong reasons. Not only is the planning for the event poor, even worse than the Inauguration festivities, but the entertainment being requested seems to be coming from a lost and found for people. There’s also a level of spite involved since Trump’s team is trying to get a Sesame Street character to show up to the event while still cutting PBS’ funding. If they can land Sweetums or the trashcan that Oscar the Grouch inhabits, they’ll be lucky.
Jimmy Kimmel seems to be looking forward to the festivities and any mayhem that comes out of it. I don’t know if I’d want to sit around watching the dreams of children die, but I’m still young. Who knows, maybe The Martin Family Circus and Bro Four can bring some lively music to the event and win over the crowd. It’s a step down from Idina Menzel, but it’ll do.
Sean Spicer also gets a chance at redemption because he can come in to play the greatest Easter Bunny in history. Just keep him quiet and give him some candy to hand out. If he starts to talk about chemical weapons, you know it’s time to wrap it up.
