Biden: "May God protect our troops and take care of the Easter bunny"

President Biden delivers remarks on Easter traditions at the White House.

President Biden, First Lady Jill Biden walked out of the White House onto the Blue Room balcony at 1:07 pm. With them was Lt. Col. Brandon Westling dressed head-to-toe as the Easter Bunny wearing a large maroon-colored mask.

Biden: "Jill and I want to thank you for joining us today and we have a special guest, as you can see to my left here."

"Easter is a day of joy where we celebrate resurrection and renewal but this year we know many people are still going without the many comforts of the season. The virus is not gone. And the second year in a row most will be apart from their family and friends and a full congregation that goes with so much joy."

 

 

"Scripture tells us joy cometh in the morning. As we celebrate the renewal of this season we know that longed-for dawn is almost here. We will rebuild our nation. We will remake and reimagine what we can be."

"We will look forward to next year when the White House will bring join to the season once again and there will be an Easter egg roll. God willing," he said. 

"May God protect our troops and take care of the Easter bunny."

Biden then stepped aside so the Easter Bunny could stand between him and the First Lady, in front of the microphone and behind the Presidential seal. The First Lady picked a flower from the balcony arrangement and handed it to the bunny.
