US First Lady Melania Trump saved her daydreaming husband from an embarrassing breach of protocol, when he forgot to raise his hand to his heart for the national anthem while hosting his first Easter Egg Roll at the White House. "Think of it - 139", he said.

In a video that has gone viral on social media, US First Lady Melania Trump was seen giving President Donald Trump a nudge at the White House, as the national anthem began.

It's an event at the White House that brings out thousands of families for fun, colorful eggs, and a few games.

Indeed, a superficial look at the images does make it seem as if the team had far fewer visitors this year than in 2015 when Obama was president.

Trump aide Kellyanne Conway and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who once played the role of the Easter Bunny in costume in 2008 during the George W. Bush administration, were popular targets for a crowd seeking selfies.

Members of Congress invite guests and there are tickets given out to schools, children's hospitals, and military families.

On the other hand, Trump also expressed his heartfelt thanks to his wife, Melania, in being the instrument for the planning and preparing towards the success of this year's Easter Egg Roll. He, Melania and Barron also joined kids at a table to colour cards to send to USA service members.

The new president, who took office January 20, thanked the first lady for her efforts in organizing the children's event.

Moments later, President Trump blew a whistle 3 times, each time sending groups of youngsters scurrying to deftly use a wooden spoon to maneuver their dyed egg several yards across the finish line.

At least six games, maybe seven was the common belief, but the Blue Jackets have not lived up to their expectations. The Penguins won 5-4, giving them a 3-0 series lead , and Werenski took to Twitter to show off his battle scar.

Also on hand for the event were the president's two older sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, along with their families.
