In the ever failing smear campaign launched against the first family, liberals in the media were sending out prayers and bad vibes, hoping and praying that Melania Trump would fail at planning the White House Easter Egg Roll. The Easter Egg Roll is one of the biggest social events of the year, and no one did it up bigger than Michelle Obama.
In 2016 the Obama White House launched a massive event with about 36,000 attendees. Idina Menzel and Silento performed and the crowd was massive. Their event was no doubt star-studded, but more party themed with long lines and huge crowds. Kind of a quantity over quality type thing.
The media did their best to say that she would be in over her head, but the newly minted first lady reached back to call on Egg Rolls from the past and went for a very traditional approach. They scaled the size down to about 21,000 people in order to keep the lines short and preserve the quality of the experience for those who were lucky enough to receive tickets.

She went out of her way to thank the service members who protect our country and make events such as those possible. Despite what the media tried to put on her, she put together an event that any administration would be proud of.
The Washington Post reports:
“21,000 people and 18,000 eggs: The Trump White House holds its first Easter Egg Roll.
Some 21,000 people were invited to attend the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, one of the year’s largest events held at the mansion and one that attracted additional attention this year after the newest occupants of the most famous house on Pennsylvania Avenue got a slow start planning the party.
But despite concerns, all seemed to go off without a hitch. It was lower key and less flashy than in years past. First lady Melania Trump wanted to focus on the more traditional aspects of the longtime Easter Egg Roll, her spokeswoman said.
The president, accompanied by the first lady, son Barron and the Easter Bunny. stepped out on to the Truman Balcony to address the crowd of colorfully dressed families.
‘This is the 139th Easter Egg Roll. Think of it. 139. It began a long time ago, 1878,’ President Trump said. “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.'”
The Obama’s event was over the top. It was a go big or go home type of event and I think now that we have a taste of what a real first lady is supposed to look like, we are all glad she went home.
(Washington Post) The affair was smaller than it was under first lady Michelle Obama, whose Easter Egg Rolls drew celebrities, professional athletes and big-name musicians. Stephanie Grisham, Trump’s spokeswoman, said this week that the first lady decided to scale back the event because she worried it had grown too large, creating long lines for some activities.
But the White House came through, releasing tickets in mid-March and distributing them via an online lottery and to “schools, children’s’ hospitals and military and law enforcement families,” Spicer said last week. He said 18,000 eggs had been ordered, “which is in line for years past.”
Even with all that goes into an event like this, she still managed to visit battered women, over the weekend, which of course the media still managed to blast her for. The charity didn’t seem to be bothered by their criticism though.

This first lady may not have dark enough skin to be politically correct or have enough of a ghetto past for the left to use her as a poster child, but you’d have to have to be pretty deluded to say that Melania isn’t a perfect picture of what America is about. Yes, we attract some of the best and brightest and even an immigrant can be throwing the most looked forward to event of the year at the White House.
If they liberals were hoping that she’d fail, and ya know they were, they were in for some disappointment. Good news for them though, all the Easter candy is on sale now and they can drown their sorrows in chocolate and hope that the leader of the free world and his other half will stumble and fall another day. Melania may have a pretty face, but she’s using her head for more than a hat rack. I know, big failure on the part of liberals that they let a pretty one go to the “dark side” but ya win some and ya lose some, am I right libs? If you don’t believe me, go ask your buddy Hillary.
