Moment Easter Bunny leads Joe Biden away as he spoke Afghanistan during Egg Roll

President Joe Biden was discussing Afghanistan at the lighthearted-in-nature White House Easter Egg Roll when an Easter Bunny cut in, leaving him looking confused.

Biden was filmed talking to reporters and guests about Afghanistan and Pakistan on Monday morning when a person disguised in a big bunny suit stepped in between them. In a clip recorded by journalist Thomas Dillon, the Easter Bunny waved its paws as some in the group could be heard laughing, while Biden appeared surprised and walked away.

In another video captured from further away, the person in the bunny costume could be seen breaking up the exchange and then guiding Biden to another place.

Republican operatives quickly hopped on the opportunity to mock the president.

‘How bad does the White House staff have to think Biden is to calculate that sending in the EASTER BUNNY to interrupt a gaggle is better optics than whatever he was about to say on Afghanistan?’ tweeted Matt Whitlock, a former aide to ex-Senator Orrin Hatch.

‘To all of you, have fun today and welcome to the White House,’ Biden said. ‘Welcome to your house. Welcome to the South Lawn.’

White House Deputy Press Secretary Angela Perez posted a photo of the Easter Bunny sitting at her desk on Monday morning. Perez also posted other images of ‘another Easter Bunny’ in the press briefing room.

The identity of the person in the bnny costume who lead Biden away is not clear.
