It's a typical spring day in Washington, D.C., and for the the 139th year, the White House is celebrating its traditional Easter Egg Roll.
For the first time, the first lady Melania Trump and the rest of her family are hosting the event. Reports expected about 21,000 children and adults to celebrate alongside the first family in the White House's South Garden.
Throughout the morning, kids ran around and made postcards for the U.S. troops, press secretary Sean Spicer reconnected with the Easter Bunny (a role he played during the Bush administration), and the first lady apparently had to remind her husband what to do during the national anthem.
That's not a joke. A video posted by CNN shows the first lady giving a tiny nudge to President Trump as the national anthem starts. A second after, the president lifts his hand and places it over his heart.
Understandably, people on Twitter were quick to react to the clip.
@DaniellaMicaela Quite telling that the first lady, an immigrant, had to remind him.— Andy McDonald (@iamandymcdonald) April 17, 2017
@DaniellaMicaela Please put your hand on your heart, Mr. Commander in Chief.— Vinny the Editor (@EDOTUS) April 17, 2017
OMG. Melania just had to nudge Trump to put his hand over heart for national anthem. WTF????— Lynnp27 🤖 (@Lynnp27) April 17, 2017
Trump had to be reminded by Melania to cover his heart during the National Anthem. He was thinking about where his heart is supposed to be.— Alt Fed Employee (@Alt_FedEmployee) April 17, 2017
However, some users pointed out that the "hand-on-the-heart" thing is a tradition usually associated with the Pledge of Allegiance, not with The Star Spangled Banner.
@theview I don't support Trump, but remember that the hand-over-the heart is traditional for the Pledge of Allegiance, not national anthem.— westsidewoof (@westsidewoof) April 17, 2017
@TheView Hand over heart for The Pledge of Allegiance (because it is a pledge), we simply stand for the National Anthem.— Jay W. Walker (@jaywwalker1) April 17, 2017
The Egg roll formally kicked off at 7:30 a.m. ET, and for the past couple of hours, there have been multiple activities, such as the postcards-making station and the actual egg roll, in which kids race by rolling wooden eggs using a spoon. There's also a reading nook where Spicer, the president, and the first lady read stories to the children, plus a cookie-making station.
"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 people are 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," Trump said, according to CNN.
