The White House announced this weekend it cannot be bothered, despite the pleas from desperate Americans, with the deportation of pop singer Justin Bieber — not when there are eggs to push with spoons!

This morning, some 30,000 children with VIP and or lucky ticket-lotto-winning parents are hanging out on the South Lawn for the 136th White House Easter Egg Roll. Sunny, Bo and the rest of the first family are also there.

Guests will spend the day playing basketball, tennis, dancing and learning healthy cooking techniques with famous friends like Miss America, Jim Carrey, Ariana Grande, and the casts of Disney’s “Jessie” and “Sesame Street.”

To combat any chocolate bunny indulgences from the holiday, the theme of this year’s event is “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape” in support of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” initiative.
