Apparently, even the White House is going in with pranks….

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:
This morning, the White House released a special video message from the President. Watch: http://t.co/qURaCeMcVh

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.
"The White House has an April Fools video," he typed listlessly. http://t.co/VcyGE06RQ5

I see that the sequester hasn't stopped the White House from producing an April fool's video… http://t.co/xcku2iadyb

Glad the White House has time to do a prank since we’re out of debt and everything is all fixed up!

Seriously….the White House has time to waste on April Fools pranks?
