Watch the Easter Bunny interrupt Biden discussing Afghanistan at the White House egg roll
hippity hopity, you have to stop
President Biden was discussing foreign policy at the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday when the Easter Bunny appeared, interrupting his conversation and carrying him away before he could resume it, videos shared on Twitter show.
“Pakistan shouldn’t, and Afghanistan should be -” the president can be heard saying to a group of people before more voices drown him out. It’s unclear which question Biden was answering, though he may have commented on the ousting of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, who was removed from office by a parliamentary vote of no confidence on April 10 and was a staunch supporter. of the Afghan Taliban government.
An off-screen voice says, “Oh! The Easter Bunny! Easy, Mr. President,” as a person in a bunny suit approaches from Biden’s right. The rabbit, which some commentators complaint was a White House press secretary, nudges the president slightly to the side and steps between Biden and the crowd. He then waves his paws in front of the President as if trying to get the attention of someone far away, even though only about 18 inches separates the two.
Finally, the Easter Bunny signals with a paw that Biden should move away in the direction the leporine intruder came from. Biden is dutifully executing.
“I’m constantly asked who really runs the country. Well, now we know: the Easter Bunny,” political commentator Ben Shapiro tweeted in response.
