It’s hard to upstage Ivanka Trump, but an adorable bunny rabbit did just that.
All eyes were on Marlon Bundo, the pet rabbit of Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen, at a White House ceremony Tuesday honoring military families.
In the ultimate fashion face-off, Ivanka and Marlon wore matching black-and-white polka dot outfits. Thanks to the audience of small children, Bundo came out on top, as adoring kids enthusiastically surrounded him.
While Marlon Bundo was content to sit back in the corner and look good, Ivanka earned nods while thanking military families for their service and sacrifice to the country.
“I know I speak on behalf of my father when I say our nation will never fail to be inspired by your example,” Ivanka said. “We will never tire of saying thank you. This administration, my family, and all Americans keep you in our hearts and our prayers always. We remember your sacrifices and we will never forget your incredible burden.”
After the speech, Ivanka invited the youngsters to have ice cream with her three kids. “For all the children here today, Arabella, Joseph, Theodore and I hope to get to know each and every one of you over an ice cream sundae or two,” she said.
Speaking after Ivanka, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster joked: “That’s the toughest act to follow.”
Meanwhile, the children had lots of fun petting Marlon Bundo:
Twitter couldn’t stop fawning over the adorable bunny rabbit, either.
