Priorities! 'Kid President' scores, but White House April Fools' Day joke falls flat (and flatulence) [video]

Sigh, yes. As Twitchy reported, the White House “teased” an announcement earlier today. Naturally, everyone guessed it would be an April Fools’ Day prank and mocking predictions came in. The video prank has been released:

Some, including members of the media, squeed over the prank.


Kid President, Robby Novack, is adorable. He is at the Egg Roll today as well.

The prank itself? Not so much. For some, the prank, and the flatulence, fell flat.


But, priorities!

More truth:

And for the win:

    It has been one continuous April Fools Day joke since November 4, 2008 except it’s not funny.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      April Fool’s Day….Washington, D.C.’s new groundhog day.

  • TugboatPhil

    I guess that speech Friday about his laser-like focus on jobs was an early joke….again.

    • GaryTheBrave

      Listen to O’s speech again. You missed something that was in the transcript:
      “I am committing laser-like foc…SQUIRREL!”

      He proceeded to pull out his laser pointer and looked straight into it to see if it worked.

    A prank from the Vacationer-in-Chief…
    did he pretend he was going to reduce the deficit by half….
    he already used that joke.

  • RblDiver

    How ’bout we lose O and keep the kid?

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Neither one measures up, so what’s the difference? I will grant, however, that on first blush, the kid does seem smarter.

  • HARP2

    Where`s the joke ?

    • JustLikeAnimals

      The joke is Joe Biden produced the video and it cost $586,345.67.

  • saywhatsaywhat

    The kid is more qualified to be President than Obama is.

    • Right Wired

      And was more thoroughly vetted

  • JustLikeAnimals

    What’s the surprise? We have come to expect at the Presidential podium who doesn’t measure up?

  • ToyZebra

    I thought Gary Coleman was dead.

    • David

      What you talkin’ about Willis?

  • Donna W

    Obama is stepping down today, due to impeachment. Everything he has done, will be undone within an hour – then there will be world peace after that.
    April fools :(

  • Bozo Sapien

    The fart joke is very appropriate since Obama is crapping all over everything America once stood for.

  • Jim Shiverdeck

    Not kid president. Sophomore president. Very fitting. Sophomore =wisefool and like a sophomore only four more years until.he’s out of here. I gave him the extra year BC he won’t.make all of grad in three.

  • Right Wired

    Fact: This kid actor was more thoroughly vetted than the real “president”.

    • SideshowJon36

      And if he got paid for this gig, has more real world job experience

  • jpcrotser

    Doesn’t the ‘kid president’ realize that this was Easter and not Halloween?

  • AWomaninTX

    Did I hear the little the boy say, “Come To The White House!”
    or did I hear that wrong?
    I thought the WH was closed for tours.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    Flatulence joke?

    With The First Wookie around, how could they tell the difference?

    She’s not know as “The First Flatus” for nothing, after all!

  • garygramscom

    Lack of teleprompters gave it right away….

    MesSage from GOD: “Hello!! US citizens. This is GOD reminding you that you voted for this tyrant. The only way you are getting out of it is to remember how I helped you make a country the first time. Freedom without morality is anarchy. That is all.”

  • radjahshelduck

    I’d like to fart on President Obama’s head. I know there is nothing profound on that, but it’s how I feel.

  • Clancie

    seriously?? How pathetic and totally to be expected from the boobs at this W.H.

  • Mark Smith

    What did the North Koreans say about this?

  • EdgeOfTheCliff

    He is a man-boy. So what is the joke?

  • EdgeOfTheCliff

    Nov. 4th, 2008 was the Death of America. The funeral was in November 2012.

  • Kate

    Obama and his staff probably put more thought into this than they have for his yet-to-be unveiled budget (or job creation, the national debt, etc).

  • Zefal

    That kid would be several steps up in maturity then the current potus, is that the joke?

  • Peyton

    April Fools Day, also known as Democrats National Holiday.

  • David

    Finally, someone at the podium that looks presidential.
