Sean Spicer relives his time as the White House Easter Bunny at the annual Egg Roll
White House press secretary Sean Spicer posed with the Easter Bunny at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday — and it provided a glimpse into "the good ole days" of his own past at the event.
He posted a photo to his Instagram account:

Spicer really did play the White House Easter Bunny when he was a spokesman for the US Trade Representative under President George W. Bush in 2008.
After photos of him in the costume resurfaced, Spicer jokingly tweeted: "What I would give to hide in a bunny costume again."

Spicer has endured repeated ridicule since becoming President Donald Trump's press secretary in January. Last week, in perhaps his most visible stumble yet,  he incorrectly said Adolf Hitler didn't use chemical weapons . After widespread criticism, Spicer apologized for his "inexcusable and reprehensible" comments.
Melissa McCarthy returned to "Saturday Night Live" as Spicer on Saturday, this time dressed as the Easter bunny, mocking his recent flubs (and that time Spicer dressed up as the furry white animal).
The annual Easter Egg Roll is one of the most high-profile events that takes place at the White House each year — both for Washingtonian families and the First Family, which is often judged by the event. The Easter Egg Roll dates back to 1878, when President Rutherford B. Hayes opened the gates to the Executive Mansion.

The Trumps hosted their first White House Easter Egg Roll — see the incredible photos

The White House on Monday hosted the 139th annual Easter Egg Roll, which was expected to include some 18,000 (wooden) eggs and at least 21,000 guests on the South Lawn.
This year's Easter Egg Roll will be smaller than those of past years (35,000 people attended the Obamas' final event). President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump, and their 11-year-old son, Barron, who lives in New York City with the first lady, hosted kids and costumed characters at the executive mansion.
The event — which has been described as the "Super Bowl of White House social events" — is an early test for Melania Trump, whose office is responsible for organizing the day.
There were signs that planning for it got off to a rocky start when, in February, the wooden-egg manufacturer, Wells Wood Turning, tweeted a reminder of the deadline for ordering the commemorative eggs.

"It's the single most high-profile event that takes place at the White House each year, and the White House and the first lady are judged on how well they put it on," Melinda Bates, who organized all eight White House Easter Egg Rolls under President Bill Clinton, told The New York Times the week before the event.
"I'm really concerned for the Trump people, because they have failed to fill some really vital posts, and this thing is all hands on deck," Bates said.
See how the Trump's Egg Roll turned out:
"Looking forward to hosting the annual Easter Egg Roll at the @WhiteHouse on Monday!" Melania Trump said on Instagram on Friday.

Trump says Kim Jong-un has 'got to behave' at White House Easter egg roll
© AFP Brendan SMIALOWSKI
Washington (AFP) - US President Donald Trump took a moment at the White House Easter egg roll Monday to deliver a terse message to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un: "Got to behave."
Trump made the off-the-cuff comment to a CNN reporter after kicking off the 139th annual Easter egg roll with First Lady Melania Trump.
"Any message for North Korea, sir, Kim Jong-Un?"
"Got to behave," said Trump.
The warning came after a tense weekend during which North Korea celebrated the birthdate of the regime's founder Kim Il-Sung with a massive military parade highlighting its growing missile capabilities.
But a missile test-launched on Sunday exploded shortly after takeoff, and a widely anticipated sixth nuclear test never materialized.
US Vice President Mike Pence was in Seoul, South Korea Monday where he warned the North not to test Trump's resolve, adding "all options are on the table."
Pence also declared that the era of US "strategic patience" in dealing with the North was over, after more than two decades.
US concerns have mounted amid signs of progress in Pyongyang's efforts to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of landing a nuclear warhead on the US mainland.
