President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump hosted the 139th annual Easter Egg Roll on the White House grounds Monday morning where video surfaced of the president signing red “Make America Great Again” hats.

Politico tweeted the following video, asserting that the president had signed a kid’s hat and then proceeded to toss it into the crowd.

The video appears to show the president grab a hat, sign it, and throw it into the crowd away from the individual who originally handed him the hat. The video posted by Politico shifts to a different angle four seconds in. The two videos meshed together create the effect of Trump grabbing a hat from a specific child and then tossing it into the crowd.

Alex Griswold of the Washington Free Beacon sent out a tweet that attempted to clear things up.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer read “How to Catch the Easter Bunny” to children and enlisted the help of well-dressed five-year-old who did not appear as enthused as Spicer.

First lady Melania Trump read “Party Animals,” a 2010 children’s book by actress and performer Kathie Lee Gifford. “I really like the book because it shows that we are all different, but we are all the same,” the first lady explained to the children.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions also read to the children Monday. He read a book about someone named P.J. that didn’t want to be a skunk because they stink.

The U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson got in on the reading session. Carson read “The Grouchy Lady Bug” to children accompanied with his wife Candy.

During the event, the president and first lady wrote letters that will be sent to soldiers serving oversees. The president and his wife along with their ten-year-old son Barron joined children on a picnic table to write the letters.
