WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump presented the first White House Easter Egg Roll of the new administration. Though the event kicked off without a hitch, there was a very brief moment that caught some journalists’ eyes.
As the national anthem played, the first lady lightly tapped the president to indicate that it was time to place his hand over his heart:
