Pulling off a White House Easter Egg Roll is no yolk, as Melania Trump is quickly finding out.
Taking to her offical Twitter account on Friday, the first lady promoted the annual event telling her followers she was “looking forward to hosting the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House on Monday!”
That’s all it took for Twitter to hit back.
“Easter Egg hunt was sad today,” wrote one user. “Couldn’t find Trump’s TAX RETURNS & Melania’s IMMIGRATION PAPERS anywhere.”
“That’ll only cost the tax payer about $3m to get her there, then another $3m to get her home the same night,” responded another.
On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that several organizations that usually receive tickets to the the event hadn’t been contacted, and that the event was behind schedule. And according to Politico, only 21,000 were expected this year, a sharp decrease from last year’s 37,000.
Meanwhile, no A-list entertainment have been secured for the event. An aide to a Republican lawmaker said the White House seemed to be “a bit behind schedule.”

For the Easter Egg roll, maybe Melania has bunny ears she can wear from her modeling days.

@ALT_uscis I'd bet anything Melania had no idea the WH has an Easter egg roll.
