On Passover Eve, White House Seder Not on Trump’s Official Schedule


The U.S. president’s schedule doesn’t feature a festive dinner, but his free evening may yet be devoted to a Passover celebration

ed note–Trump will more than likely have some sort of token dinner, but there are still nuanced reasons for him not listing this as part oft he official WH schedule. In the same way that on Hollerco$t Kvetching/Screeching/Wailing Day he did not specifically centerpiece the Jews, the Jews, the Jews, and the Jews in the official statement, but rather included EVERYONE who lost their lives in the work camps of WWII, likewise, by not listing a Seder on the schedule Trump wants the message broadcast loud and clear that he is not a poodle on a leash held by Judea, Inc and that in the end, if indeed he does wind up participating in some kind of dinner, it will only be as a afterthought.

On Monday evening, Jewish people around the world will gather to celebrate Passover. But it is still unclear what exactly will happen at the White House, where the Jewish holiday was celebrated for the past eight years in a “presidential seder” – a tradition initiated by former U.S. President Barack Obama.

The tradition of holding a presidential seder was started by a number of Obama’s Jewish aides, who held a seder dinner together with him on the campaign trail the year before he entered the White House. Obama was then the first American president to hold a seder at the presidential residence, and on some occasions was joined by his wife, Michelle, and two daughters, Sasha and Malia.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who has a Jewish daughter and grandchildren, could continue this tradition – but as of Monday morning, it was still unclear whether he will. On Thursday, Jewish Insider reported that a seder will be held at the White House by a number of Jewish aides, but that the president’s participation wasn’t certain, mainly because of Trump’s busy schedule as a result of the Syria crisis.

Under past administrations, Jewish staffers in the White House had held seder dinners together. Yet the significance of the Obama years was the president’s participation in the event.

On Sunday night, the White House released Trump’s public schedule for Monday, and a seder dinner did not appear in it. However, the last public event in the schedule is a 4 P.M. meeting with Mick Mulvaney, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, perhaps meaning that the president will be free to attend a seder in the evening hours.

    Why the hell should he have a special dinner? Do Jews cook turkey on Christmas Day? It is their day, to celebrate their dire history about slaughtering gentile babies. Why should anyone else be expected to celebrate?

    From what I have gathered, Trump steps back from the Kushner rituals in respect, but does not participate. if one is to go by his comments about Saturdays without the family.

    It is SO time to gag these belly-aching critters.

    LOL! Trump has more important things to do, like trim his toe nails.
