When questioned about hosting any future Easter Egg hunts at the White House, President Biden ended up spiraling down one of his babbling rants about he would be "pushing" out eggs for the 2024 election.
Al Roker, a weathercaster for NBC "Today," took time to speak with Biden while they attended the Easter egg hunt that is hosted by the White House, at which he called on Biden with some questions, asking if he would be playing a part in the Easter egg rolls after 2024.
"I’m planning on at least three or four more Easter egg rolls," exclaimed Biden in response.
"At least three or four?" responded Roker, seemingly pressing.
"Maybe five. Maybe six. What the hell," fired back Biden.
"Are you saying that you would be taking part in our upcoming elections?" questioned Roker.
"Well, I’ll either, I’ll either be rolling egg or uh, being the guy, you know, the guy who’s pushing them out," stated Biden as an answer.
later, he went on to add, "I’m planning on running now but we’re not prepared to announce it yet."

Just over a year ago, a press official and director of message planning from the White House, while dressed up as the Easter Bunny, quickly put a stop to Biden as he started to try and give answers to questions about Afghanistan at the White House.
Meghan Hays quickly interrupted Biden just as Afghan reporter Nazira Karimi put forth a question to Biden and the President answered, "Pakistan, Sudan, and Afghanistan should be — people should be free …"

"How bad does the White House staff have to think Biden is to calculate that sending in the EASTER BUNNY to interrupt a gaggle is better optics than whatever he was about to say on Afghanistan?" claimed a GOP operative.
According to tradition, the Easter Egg Roll, which involves a race taking place on the White House South Lawn where children quickly push an egg through the grass using a spoon with a really long handle, was first started by Dolly Madison, the wife of James Madison --America’s fourth president-- back in 1814. This race was then relocated to the lawn of the White House in 1878 by President Rutherford Hayes and his wife Lucy.
Easter eggs are used to represent the empty tomb from which Jesus Christ resurrected. One explanation of the Easter egg stated, "Just so, on that first Easter morning, Jesus came to life and walked out of the tomb, and left it, as it were, an empty shell. Just so, too, when the Christian dies, the body is left in the grave, an empty shell, but the soul takes wings and flies away to be with God. Thus you see that though an egg seems to be as dead as a stone, yet it really has life in it; and also it is like Christ’s dead body, which was raised to life again.
