Oh, nice one, Mark! The White House is pulling out all the stops, with some unintentional hilarity, and it’s being covered live on Twitter. Follow @JakeTapper and @MarkKnoller to get all the scoop as it happens.

 

POTUS introduces "the one truly in charge," the first lady.

"I think the president is going to try to beat a three-year old" in an Easter egg roll, she joked.

Aww, the President is childishly competitive! This makes sense; it matches his puerile petulance.

Tweeps of course come through with some much-needed snark.

Joe Biden IS tall. RT @markknoller: Pres Obama just gave the Easter Bunny a high-five. The bunny's as tall as Pres Obama.

Isn't today a workday? MT @markknoller Obama shoots hoops in game that requires 2 push ups if you miss. Mr Obama has done 6 push ups so far.

Jake Tapper, a Sendak fan.

POTUS reading "Where the Wild Things Are" to kids at the WH Easter Roll. SENDAK !!!

Even at an Easter egg roll, Obama shows his true colors.

POTUS gets up before he finishes the book, FLOTUS starts reading a completely different book.

Whoops! Consistently incompetent.

Wha? RT @jaketapper: WH Easter Egg Roll features a basketball clinic for kids — get a load of the balls being used http://t.co/BuNvKCfg

And consistently campaigning. It’s all about the Benjamins, baby. Well, if Benjamins were votes. Although, it looks like he’s spending a few Benjamins to get votes.
