This week, Wee Folk Players (They’re a Stitch) bring you along on a school field trip to the White House. A chaperon was required to keep tabs on the gaggle of children as they made their way through the historic residence. Predictably, things got a little out of hand, as you’ll see in the photo at the end of this post.
During the tour, the youngsters were treated to some surprise entertainment from the Tweeter-in-chief himself, who flew in unannounced. He regaled them with stories of his own rise in power and encouraged them to follow his exemplary model. He even offered some winning advice to the next generation of Americans to reach their full potential, “Think big, never apologize, disclaim responsibility and bully your way to the top.”
It took several takes to get the scene just right, as the leading man shape-shifted without warning between anthropoid and fowl.
The visit was educational and memorable, and stories are sure to be passed down through history!
