Egg Roll or eye roll? White House Easter event to include Yoga Garden, Eggtivity Zone

It’s not a White House shindig unless the downward dog is involved!

This year’s White House Easter Egg Roll is taking the form of a “Let’s Move! Social.

Today we learned more about the event that almost became SequEaster.

Groan. Never let a party go to waste:



Easter yoga — an Obama White House tradition:

  • Dale Black

    What the White House really needs is mental yoga instruction. I need to limber up my brain cells so I can follow President Obama’s contorted reasoning as to why mandating health insurance coverage reduces costs. . . . Oh, crap, I think I just sprained a neuron again.

  • TugboatPhil

    No altar to Baal to bring abortion survivors?

    • CatHerder

      Moloch would be more appropriate.

      • Christoph DeHaven

        True, but it’s hard to keep track of all the gods Americans worship these days. Perhaps it’ll be set up right next to the Emperor’s cult image.

  • Billie Slash

    Well, the Obamas have been rolling the American public for years. At least today they’re only picking on eggs.

  • almarquardt

    Wow. Yoga and Easter are related how?

  • Lisa Bergeson

    Lord help us.

  • Brian Johnson

    They should rename it the “Sequeaster Egg Roll” to remind us of the coming DOOOOOM that the evil Bush McCheneyHitlerPalin Republicans have wrought on the American people with the starvation of Congressional staffers, letting go of overpaid Federal workers, Zombie Apocalypse and the return of New Kids on the Block….

    EDIT: Oops, just realized “Sequeaster” has been used right here on Twitchy before….

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    In which “zone” exactly will the kids hear the story of Christ?

    Oh…lemme guess… there’s a crucifixion pose in yoga.

    • TocksNedlog

      That will take place in the “Non-secular Zone” … you know, right outside the White House gates.

  • sqeptiq

    Yoga is awesome, but featuring it at an Easter celebration? Dopey.

    • Jillane Kent

      For once, I agree with you.

      • sqeptiq

        It’s good to agree sometimes! If we don’t converse before Sunday, I hope you have a happy Easter. And if we do converse before Sunday, I still hope you have a happy Easter.

    • Brett McMicken

      lol! the kids will be so wired on chocolate bunnies they will be more than active enough without the yoga

  • Anderson

    “Eggtivity Zone … teaching kids how to play sports and show kids easy, fun ways to stay active and fit.”
    It would be really helpful if they could enjoy these activities without getting hit in a drive-by too.

  • KansasGirl

    @dhenry They’ll be in the “Eggtivity Zone…teaching kids how to play sports and show kids easy, fun ways to stay active and fit”.

    What parent in their right mind would want this government to teach their children anything…especially these yoga zombies. Geez.

    • nc

      Yoga zombies, lol! I actually do have some friends that are really into yoga. Oh wait, they’re all big libs.

  • justlittlolme

    Can’t wait to see the pictures of all those happy faced kids!LOL! Poor things.

  • Brett McMicken

    can’t wait to see michelle and president birdlegs out there in spandex doing yoga!

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      So. Are you going to reimburse me for the cost of the mental eyebleach now?

    • KansasGirl

      Moooochelle and spandex, now there’s a sight for sore eyes. lol

      • truebeliever101


    • James Cushman

      I need brain bleach right now thanks to you. :p

    • Judy B

      Brain bleach please

  • Jim Denney

    To be fair, The Royal Couple did fire the regular EASTER bunny & bring in an intern to cut costs. Always warriors for the middle class….

  • mike_in_kosovo

    Yoga zone cancelled, Zero had the down dog for lunch.

  • TocksNedlog

    So . . . they’re gonna hold this event on Monday — on April Fools Day.

    How appropriate.

  • Peace&JusticeLady

    Yoga can be a pathway to Spiritual freedom. It’s much harder to find Samadhi, without knowing the Freedom that Jesus Christ brings, by his death on the cross. Without Christ, Yoga, is just another spiritual journey, that in and of itself, is not terrible, but it will not get you to salvation, and the freedom of a Spirit freed from the curses of hell. America, was meant to be a place of religious freedoms, so I’m not tying the fall of the Republic to some yoga at the white house. Yoga is a beautiful spiritual path, but Easter is about Christ. Don’t exclude the latter, and pretend the former will take care of it.
