The Daily Combover - April 17, 2017

For fun today we're going to recap Easter with the Trumps.

As always a quick look at Twitter:
What was that doing in the middle of Easter greetings?
So sweet! Let's hit the South Lawn for the Easter roll!

As always we begin with the National Anthem.



Silly, you forgot to put your hand on your heart!

Now time for some fun!


Huh? That's not how you have fun at an Easter Egg Roll. This is:


Hmm... Let's just get to the speech:


10:27 A.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT:  What a great voice.  Thank you very much.  Great job.  I want to thank everybody.  This is the 139th Easter Egg Roll.  Think of it -- 139.  It began a long time ago -- 1878.  And we will be stronger and bigger and better as a nation than ever before.  We're right on track.  You see what's happening, and we're right on track.  So thank you, everybody, for being here.
I'm sure all the kids in the audience just ate that bravado up like a chocolate bunny. Delicious!
We're going to do cards for soldiers in a little bit, Melania and Barron and myself.  We're going downstairs, we're going to sign some cards to our great troops -- they're cards for troops -- and we look forward to that.  And then we're going to come out and join you, and enjoy your company for a roll, a great Easter Egg Roll.  And I don’t know if we're going to be successful, but I know a lot of people down there are going to be successful.  I've seen those kids, and they're highly, highly competitive.  (Laughter.)  That I can tell you.
 What else can I tell you? Several times I've promised to send money to the troops and only came through on it after I got caught in a lie. But don't worry! I promise to mail those cards out for you and a promise is one of my best words. Did I mention I have the best words? I know words. Believe me. That I can tell you.
I just want to thank First Lady Melania Trump.  She's really worked hard on this.  (Applause.)  She has been working on this for a long time to make it perfect, and we wanted to keep it just right.  So I want to just ask her to speak.  But before she speaks, I want to congratulate her on this wonderful, wonderful day.  We're going to have a lot of people -- a lot of people -- and they're going to have a great time.
So, Melania, thank you very much.  And, Barron, thank you very much for being here.  Thank you very much.  (Applause.)  
As if Barron had a choice.
Honey -- First Lady, Melania Trump.  Thank you, everybody.
MRS. TRUMP:  Thank you.  Welcome to the White House.  This is the first time that my husband and I are hosting this wonderful tradition, and it's great that you are all with us today.  I hope you have a great time, with many activities.
This is also one of the first times that she's set foot in the White House but that's a different story.
I want to thank the military band, all the staff and volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure that you have a memorable experience.  I want to thank all the military with us today -- (applause) -- and all military in this great nation, and servicemen and servicewomen all around the world keeping us safe.  
Even Kim Jong-Un doesn't force his wife to push the military like this. What happened to the kids?
As we renew this tradition, thank you for joining us.  On behalf of the President and Barron, we wish you great fun and beautiful days coming ahead of us.  And Happy Easter.  Thank you.  God bless you.  (Applause.) 
THE PRESIDENT:  Happy Easter.  And have a great, great time.  Have a great day.  Thank you, folks.  Thank you very much.  I'm coming down.  I'm going to be joining you.  Thank you very much.  My whole family is here.  Thank you.
What an odd way to conclude the speech, but then again this is Trump.

Happy Easter!

Catch you on the flip side!
