Despite the coronavirus being on the steady decline and the science showing that young children are “unlikely” to spread the virus, first lady Jill Biden has reportedly canceled this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll and is instead hawking wooden Easter eggs.
Designed annually by the first lady and produced by the White House Historical Association, a 59-year-old non-profit that preserves the history of the White House, the wooden eggs are meant to be used at the White House Easter Egg Roll.
It’s a century-old event/tradition where the main highlight is kids using long-handled spoons to roll wooden eggs on the White House lawn in a race against one another.
See scenes from the 2019 White House Easter Egg Roll below:
Because of the outbreak of the coronavirus last year, then-first lady Melania Trump canceled the 2019 Easter Egg Roll, and the White House Historical Association subsequently sold that year’s supply of eggs as commemorative items.
It appears that Biden has chosen to follow the same path, despite the virus being on the decline, and the facts now showing that “children — especially those under the age of 12–14 — are less susceptible to infection than adults,” according to Nature magazine.
FYI, the Easter Egg Roll is designed for kids 13 and younger.
Like last year, this year’s supply of eggs are being sold to the public. Except for one difference.
Trump designed four of the 2020 eggs to feature the White House in the front and one special golden egg to feature an outline of the Presidential Seal in the front. All five eggs featured stamped signatures from the first lady and her husband.
But Biden instead chose to go a different route.
She designed four of the 2021 eggs to feature a masked bunny rabbit and one special golden egg to feature silhouettes of the White House dogs Champ and Major. All five eggs feature stamped signatures from the first lady and her husband.

Here’s a closer-up view:
These masked-themed eggs can be pre-ordered for $34.95 for the entire set, $14.95 for the golden egg and $8.50 for one of the other four.
The irony is that both Champ and Major are incognito at the White House.
After Major reportedly bit someone at the White House earlier this month, the Bidens reportedly both Champ and Major to Delaware to stay with “family friends.”
They were subsequently accused of banishing the dogs.
“Family dogs Major and Champ have been banished from the White House for a doggie time out in Delaware after Major caused a “minor injury” to a Secret Service agent,” the Associated Press reported on March 9th.
“White House press secretary Jen Psaki explained the canine caper Tuesday by saying the dogs ‘are still getting acclimated and accustomed to their new surroundings and new people.'”
As for the masked bunny rabbit on the eggs, it does fit with the Biden administration’s near-obsession with masking.
During a congressional hearing earlier this week, Sen. Rand Paul demanded to know from Biden administration official Dr. Anthony Fauci why he was continuing to mask — and double mask, in fact — despite having been vaccinated.
The doctor refused to offer a legitimate answer.

Also this week, President Joe Biden suddenly decided to argue that an already controversial 100-day mask mandate isn’t enough — and that the American people should remain masked until every single America is vaccinated.
“I urge all local docs and ministers and priests to talk about why, why it’s important to get that vaccine and even after that, until everyone is, in fact, vaccinated, to wear this mask,” he said on Monday.
This sort of general rhetoric from his administration has provoked allegations that the admin is disincentivizing Americans from obtaining a vaccine. The thinking is that, if the vaccine doesn’t eliminate the need for a mask and social distancing, then what’s the point?
Do we have any evidence for this? Because here’s the reality: the main reason people, particularly those who are under 65, are getting the vaccine is so they can stop socially distancing and masking. https://t.co/9knIbJ1g2r

Here are your choices, public policymakers: either tell people that after the vaccines, they can go back to regular life, or people will start going back to regular life without getting vaccinated. There is no third choice where people get vaccinated and then keep locking down.

Right now, your idiotic rhetoric is generating the worst available option: the second, in which a large batch of Americans refuse to get the vaccine, then see that the virus numbers are going down and thus return to regular life unvaccinated.

It seems that, by doubling down on the mask rhetoric, both President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden are choosing to continue with the “idiotic rhetoric,” as conservative commentator Ben Shapiro would describe it.
