Trump appears to take child's hat, autograph it, throw it into the crowd
Read Full Story
Donald Trump had a bit of an awkward moment at the White House Easter Egg Roll on Sunday.
As the president mingled with the enthusiastic crowd, a child asked him to sign a hat. He complied but then appears to have tossed the hat into the crowd.
The hat's owner can be heard dramatically yelling "no!" while Trump laughs. A hand reaches out to retrieve the hat just before the president tosses it elsewhere.
Then in the video, a voice saying "thank you" can be heard as Trump accepts another hat to sign. He hands this one back to the owner. After, Trump holds up a pen and says "who's hat?"
Some Twitter users are furious that he would tease a child like that, but others find it harmless and funny.
See how people have responded to the video:
