SequEaster: White House threatens to cancel annual Easter Egg Roll

The Obama White House has never shied away from using kids as props. Now, it’s threatening to put the kibosh on this year’s Easter Egg Roll. Because, SEQUESTER!!!!111! 


“[B]y using these tickets, guests are acknowledging that this event is subject to cancellation due to funding uncertainty surrounding the Executive Office of the President and other federal agencies,” the White House cautioned, according to two Capitol Hill sources who provided the language. “If cancelled, the event will not be rescheduled.”


On Friday, Carney got into a contentious back-and-forth on Fox News and said the egg rolls [sic] is for a lot of military families and it’s paid for by the sale of ceremonial eggs and outside donations. “It’s a totally different budget, he said. “These are apples and oranges.”

Pathetic. What next? Will President Obama squinch up his face and threaten to hold his breath? Cancel his vacations and golf games?

Nah. That’s crazy talk! Because the president is totally focused on our finances. And all that leisure time really helps to clear his head and stuff.

Hey, these cuts have got to hit us where it hurts.

Whatever happened to “for the children”?



Sequester theater: Petulant Obama dishes out punishment by canceling WH tours

Priorities! WH open for Adele and Beyoncé; Asked to perform for Michelle Obama’s birthday

  • Lexikin

    This is a lie because here in Chicago they announced today that Hadiya Pennelton’s family is invited. Tell Obummer to STFU

    Edit Link:

  • Terrell Guell

    When the public becomes upset about this Obama will blame it on the Secret Service that they decided to shut it down

  • Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber

    or… you could tell adele not to perform on michelle’s birthday.

    • Butterfly Dragon

      Adele has already said she’s waiving her fee to sing. So it’s not costing taxpayers a dime. But with that said, how about Obama keep his ass in DC and stop flying all over the country? At $1.8 million/hr for Air Force One, he should stay put for a while.

      • geanthony

        The statement that Adele is not charging her fee is true, but the taxpayers are still on the hook for the cost of the increased security detail for FLOTUS, and the cost for decorations, invitations and the voluminous quantities of high caloric food that will be consumed.

        • BlueGood

          Let the CHEAP PRYCK take Candy from Babies…..Let him show the world exactly where his priorities Lie….LIE??? Who Him???

          …..You Betcha!….

          By far, the MOST disgusting example of a GREEDY SELF SERVING SOB I have EVER read about…

          Tomorrow, I’ll take off the gloves and tell you how I really feel about that LOSER………………

          • $23089169

            Don’t hold back now – it’s not good for your health to hold it in! :)

      • CatHerder

        Hmm, is she going to foot the bill for travel expenses too? Wouldn’t that make this a command performance, like the Queen gets? Elizabeth II, I mean.

      • OneThinDime

        Let’s not forget the Secret Service and the cost of Air Force One to retrieve her (extra fuel for that heavy weight) plus the limo costs. Moochier should give up food and will save us millions.

        • Larry G.

          they arent sending air force one to pick up adele lol

          • OneThinDime

            Event hasn’t happened yet so I disagree. Bon Jovi’s backside was on Air Force One.

          • Larry G.

            yeah but they didnt send the plane to collect the Bon Jovi, big difference (whether or not you agree with him hitching a ride on AF1 to a campaign event is another thing, but regardless the plane was going).

            i think seriously this is where we lose a lot of arguments because so many people take them to the extreme (saying we’re sending the plane to pick up Adele), which as soon as that is proven to be untrue the argument fails.

      • Roto

        Only Obama would let an unwed mother work for free….

      • Txgirlinnh

        I think he should walk his own damn dog too. How much would that save…enough for A LOT of Easter eggs.

      • Michelle

        Her fees aside, yes it is costing us. Security and background checks on her musicians and crew, transportation to/from airport, their hotel and most likely their airfare. If the Obama’s had an ounce of decency or integrity, they’d not be hosting a star-studded birthday bash for Michelle while White House tours and now possibly the Easter egg hunt have been put on hold. It is OUR White House, not theirs. But they are not decent and neither do they have integrity. Everything is always all about them. They are the most self-absorbed couple to ever reside in our White House during the course of my life, if not of all time.

      • lainer51

        who would pay to see her anyway?

    • conservativechick

      Oh, WHY does Obama hate children?

    • Elaine
  • Jimni27

    Next up: Christmas has been cancelled.

    • Patrick Dennehy

      Well, we definitely know who made naughty list

      • Miss Clairee

        Wonder how long it is going to take the “general” public to realize that liberals are just so darned vindictive?

        • stellatruman

          I wonder how many Obama voters are feeling really stupid right about now ?

          • It’s just me again

            None. Thinking requires a brain.

          • deltamary

            A black lady in the community thinks Obama’s crap don’t stink, In Church every time the door opens- knows he is for murder of babies, homos to be married and still supports him. Why? The free food and Dr bills and medicine free and rent.That’s the brain dead thinkers of today.

          • Orlando Cee

            Not enough.

      • TheOriginalDonald

        Bad news-O isn’t getting coal

        Good news-He’s getting a Justin Beiber toothbrush. #dentalHygiene

    • Jim Russell

      Yes. Any excuse to cancel those dumbassed Christian events….when ur an ‘unavowed’ closet hard-core Atheist.

      • TexSizzle

        I think “autotheist” is an accurate description: he is his own god.

    • conservativechick

      We aready did that. It’s now the HOLIDAY celebration and Easter is the SPRING party.

      • Jimni27

        So true Elaine :(

  • Susan Reaney

    It’s a sorry POS that takes out his sequester vengence on small children.

    • CatHerder

      Oh no, he’s saving up spit for us too.

  • $23629333

    Cancel the Easter Egg Roll!?!? What’ll they do with all those eggs? Make an omelet large enough to feed the entire White House staff – or Michelle?

  • RagamuffinB

    Has anyone figured out who the Grinch is making these decisions? I mean, the President stated that stopping the tours was made without WH input. And he is always so very straightforward about these things… (eyeroll, unless it’s been sequestered too)

  • DANEgerus

    How much did Michelle Pay Beyonce’ for her birthday party? Adele?

  • NumbuhOne

    If @SpeakerBoehner or the GOP Leadership (Ha!, what a joke!) had a clue, they would announce the House GOP is sponsoring an Easter Egg Roll with the money they saved from their office budgets and will honor the White House invitations.

    • Bamagirl14

      AWESOME IDEA!! Lets tell Rand Paul or Ted Cruz about this idea!! Republicans and conservatives are caring cuz it’s For the Children™

  • Squirrel!

    It’s the Easter Bunny’s fault!

  • Emily B

    The lady in the middle with the green dress made me laugh. She seemed so shocked and amused that anyone would suggest that The Chosen One would take lavish vacations and golf trips.

  • rivers

    Bet it would be cheaper to go to Camp David instead of Martha’s Vineyard. And the first family has been to Hawaii plus a ski vacation already this year. I haven’t been able to take my kids on a vacation in four years. They would be pretty damn happy to have use of Camp David.

    I read Animal Farm, I’m going to call a pig a pig when I see one, Mr. and Mrs. Obama.

  • marcellucci

    Maybe he thinks he’s hurting the Chinese because he thinks they actually use egg rolls….

  • Howzah123

    When Obama isn’t standing on the bodies of children to attack the Second Amendment, he’s taking away their Easter Egg hunts.

  • Steve_J

    Since it’s only a photo op for the President (regardless of which Party) I don’t see why it’s needed. It’s not like it has anything to do with Easter in the first place,

  • Scott Carroll

    This is a lesser known corollary to the “Firemen First” political ploy, “Easter Bunnies First!”

    Petty, thy name is Obama.

  • Neil Leininger

    Obama is agnostic, so I’m sure it’s killing him to Sequester Easter.

  • Thevelvetkitten


  • OneThinDime

    Until we have a thorough and trustworthy background check on all of the Obamas, including the brats, no one else’s children should be anywhere near them. Cancel all WH events period.

  • OneThinDime

    Carney told reporters the Obamas will NOT cut back on their lavish vacations.

  • dmbatten

    $9,000.00 for a gown to wear on TV for the Oscars for that Moose and they cut the Easter Egg celebration; obama is a hateful spiteful spoiled brat and his diaper needs changing.

  • stellatruman

    Loved the way Carney dodged the question BTW

  • TocksNedlog

    Hey Obama,
    Bet you can’t hold your breath forever!

  • SJ’s Dad

    Well THAT oughta balance the budget!

  • Donna W

    Ignore their tomfoolery, they are just doing this to piss everyone off (it’s working, but still….). Michelle can have her big ol birthday bash – I promise you she’s a miserable human being deep down.

  • $23089169

    There is not a business in America that would survive by making cuts in this way. If this is how the politicize our money over an Easter egg hunt, what will they do with our essential healthcare?

    • CatHerder


  • G.

    When will the WH announce that the fee on each egg found is $50,000 to cover the cooking, coloring, and hiding cost the WH incurred? Also for the 4 dozen eaten by Moochelle and to help in Husseins reelection as Lord Of The Universe.

  • aegean1

    I also saw an article online that the Blue Angels might be cancelling performances later in the year because of the cuts. So, let’s keep throwing money at regimes that want to kill us, but get rid of the Blue Angels and the Easter Bunny? WTF Obama? Jerk.

  • chetnapier

    why do I keep expecting to hear Lorne Greene to staart singing ‘you’re a mean one mr grinch’

    • TexSizzle

      I prefer Thurl Ravenscroft’s version.

  • JD Olson

    “The president has been focused everyday TOTALLY LIKE A 500 KILOWATT LASER on job and economic growth. What! Shut up, you guys! You are!”– statement from White House press secretary Napoleon Dynamite.

  • Michael Rice

    How dare they celebrate a Christ cnetered holiday, anyway. SHouldn’t libs be championing this?

  • JR48

    To the Obamas, it’s just a photo op. It’s not something important like keeping three official calligraphers with six figure salaries employed.

  • Paul Citro

    Of course punish the innocent that’s what Satan would do!!

  • rivers

    Not to worry, the Obama’s will be partying it up today though,for St. Patrick’s day.Two days late, natch.
    Pigs will party, being more equal and all.

  • Lisa Dean

    Little by little Obama is turning the WH into their own private house. No tours, no Easter egg hunt, probably no 4th of July display will be next. Remember that #HopeAndChange that was voted into office, well, he’s bastardized my middle name and he’s definitely changing the WH and this country.

  • gracepmc

    Hope all this SeqEaster talk isn’t a buzz kill at the big WH St. Paddy’s bash tonight.

  • Orlando Cee

    If this man won’t lift a finger (literally) to save the lives of Americans in Benghazi, what makes anyone think he’ll think twice about disappointing some American children? He’ll blame that on the Republicans.

    Folks, this man is on his second term–what does he have to lose? He knows also knows Congress doesn’t have the balls to impeach him.

    Besides, he’ll have more time for golf and some choom.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Okay, how ’bout a US budget fundraiser where we allow donors to roll Louie & Marie Obamuh around their WretchedHive grounds?

  • lcky9

    weren’t we told that PRIVATE FUNDS are used for the EASTER EGG ROLL??? SO how does this wash were those PRIVATE GOVERNMENT FUNDS???
