Jimmy Kimmel couldn’t help but notice that there was something a little “different” about this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll.
“Trump heard ‘egg roll’ and promised to make the Chinese pay for it,” he joked. “It was a fun day for the president. He got to eat chocolate. He even met a nice kid named Barron who he really liked.”
But it was first lady Melania Trump that Kimmel was keeping his eye on. As the official host, the first lady was on hand for one of her rare appearances.
“She worked so hard on this event,” President Donald Trump said in his rambling remarks to the children and families.
“Not a chance she did one thing to help set that up,” Kimmel said. “She didn’t dye eggs. The only thing she’s been working on is an escape tunnel.”
Each year, the first lady and other members of the cabinet read stories to children attending the event. Kimmel played a clip of Mrs. Trump reading a children’s book and noted her accent means his sidekick, Guillermo “could be first lady of the United States.”
“Hey, I love that Vice President Pence just released the children’s book about a bunny,” Kimmel said, speaking of politicians reading children’s book. Pence’s daughter Charlotte penned a book about her pet Marlon Bundo. “Did they read that to the kids? No. They went with ‘dis and dat’ instead.”
Kimmel also noted that the president signed a proclamation declaring “the month of April to be National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. At this point he’s just messing with us, right?”

‘Hell no’: Texans join forces to stop Trump from stealing their land
President Donald Trump's pledge to build a wall at the southern border with Mexico has been a huge winner with his base. But there is one group of people who are not happy: the Texans who actually live in the region where the wall would be built.
According to the Washington Post, many people in the region have no intention of letting the federal government seize their land to construct the wall, like Afghanistan war veteran Salvador Castillo of Brownsville, who received a letter from officials demanding unlimited access to and use of his land, which gradually escalated into a lawsuit.
Pearl Harbor veteran to be interred on sunken ship
It was an attack that shaped history, leaving more than 2,400 Americans dead and forcing the United States to enter a war it had been reluctant to join.
On Saturday, the 78th anniversary of the 1941 sneak attack by Japan on Pearl Harbor, the remains of one of the survivors of the assault will be interred on his sunken ship, the USS Arizona.
Lauren Bruner, who was among the last sailors rescued from the Arizona as it exploded into flames and sank, died in September at age 98.
He had expressed in years past his wish to be buried alongside fellow sailors who died on that fateful day.
