White House Pulls Perfect April Fools' Prank From Press Room (VIDEO)

white house press roomAlthough yesterday was all about fun and Easter games at the White House -- President Obama, the First Family, and 30K visitors took part in the annual Easter Egg Roll -- today, the Obama administration had an important announcement via Twitter. They tweeted out a video of "a special message from the president," framed with a shot of the lectern in the White House press room.

HA! Love Kid President, aka Robbie Novak, who is famous for his YouTube series! How cute and perfect was it that the White House had him come do this little gag for April Fools' Day? The only thing I would have liked to see done differently would have been a bit more of a faux "announcement." Something like how we have a post-Easter egg shortage and need to start rationing our omelets? Ehh, nonetheless, still lots of fun!
