Easter egg roll: kids yell “no” as Donald Trump inexplicably flings some kid’s hat into the crowd [video]

Donald Trump returned to the White House today for the traditional Easter Egg Roll, but he might have done better for himself if he’d remained at Mar-a-Lago instead. Trump forgot to put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem, until his wife prompted him. But then things got even worse when a kid in the crowd asked Trump to autograph his hat.

Video footage posted by Politico reveals that a kid said “Will you sign my hat?” to Donald Trump, who stopped and amicably signed the hat. But then instead of handing the hat back to the kid, Trump flung the hat randomly into the crowd. The kid yelled out “No!” and other kids joined him in yelling the same. Then Trump signed another kid’s hat – only to fling it into the crowd as well. After throwing the second hat, Trump inexplicably said “Whose hat?”

Did Trump think he was being funny by trying to bait the crowd of kids into fighting over hats that he knew belonged to specific kids? Did he have a mental lapse, forgetting that specific kids had just handed these hats to him seconds earlier? That’s not entirely clear. But one thing is for sure: Donald Trump’s week is off to a strange start, even by his standards. Watch the video of Trump taking kids’ hats from them and flinging them into the crowd:

      He’s not thinking! So cavalier about everything!

  2. Jules on April 17, 2017 at 3:41 pm

    I tell you he has Dementia. Ivanka is there to help him remember . We have a madman running the country.

    Perhaps he’s building a case for an insanity plea.

    Man, that reminds me of the bullys in school that kept stealing my stuff and threw it around laughing. Trump reminds me of school yard bullys alot actually.

    What a complete and utter ASSHOLE!

      He is! I just can’t stand him! He won’t last long as President for sure!

    That looks like the same kind of slavery as when he was prompted to shake Angela Merkle’ s hand and appeared to ignore it. Or was nobody home?

    Hmmm… That “early Alzheimer’s” argument is looking more likely by the day.

    As long as HE is not the one directly suffering from his own actions he thinks he can do anything ha wants. He’s the worst.

  9. Claudia Groh on April 18, 2017 at 12:43 am

    And now we know why his siblings are never around! He just can’t play nice! He couldn’t even find his heart when flotus nugged him, hello the lights are on but no one home! The newer action villian …Toxic waste!

    Comrade Twittershiter is nothing more than a bully.

  11. Jim Snyder on April 18, 2017 at 2:59 am

    What the heck is WRONG with this guy?

  12. etremble on April 18, 2017 at 8:25 am

    The guy is a certified bully psychopath! Who needs more proof? Arrest him already before he starts WWIII!

  13. Lesley O'Neil on April 18, 2017 at 8:31 am

    Is he getting deaf? That might explain a few things. But for whatever reason, he sure can be a jerk.

  14. BrianW on April 18, 2017 at 8:34 am

    The first thing I thought of was the schoolyard bullies who grabbed another kid’s hat and yelled “Saluggi!” That was the signal to his buddies to throw the hat back and forth and make the victim chase it.

    I’m getting unwanted e-mail nearly every day about some “miracle” drug that Trump says has given him an enhanced brain and superior mental ability. The same promoter is trying to say this is what caused Trump to win the election. What gives?

  16. Gigi on April 19, 2017 at 10:50 am

    He is such an idiot! He gets worse day by day.

  17. Elyse Chiapello on April 19, 2017 at 4:31 pm

    He’s in worse shape than Reagan in his final term. Sheesh — what’s taking the Russia-stuff so long? We gotta get rid of him!
