Donald Trump managed to f*ck up something so simple as the annual White House Easter egg roll when he made a child’s dream come true then threw it away. A young supporter — someone too young to know better but at the right “level” to think The Donald is not a grifter and conman — asked Trump to sign his “Make America Great Again” hat. While it is difficult to understand why anyone would want this, Trump obliged — then he did something terrible.
Sensing that he had just brought joy to a child, The Donald’s circuits overloaded, causing him to throw the hat into the crowd as the kid screamed “No!” In the background, the child can be heard begging the person who caught it to return his hat. “Please,” he says, “that’s my hat.”
Then, completely unconcerned with what he had just done, he did it again with the next kid. Naturally, people were not thrilled with this:
@politico Looks like he literally forgot it was that kid’s hat. Like he’s that dumb, that self-absorbed, or that memory-impaired. Or all three.

@politico He’s a father. Child wanted a signed hat, just give it back. It’s WH Easter Egg Roll not the Hunger Games. No grace or civility.

What in the hell is wrong with Trump? Is his life so terrible with the Russia investigation and his inability to bully our allies or impact our enemies in any way that he has been reduced to bullying children at Easter events?
