This Week's Hostage Expression

U.S. Attorney General William Barr's Mueller Report press conference drew a lot of attention.  Why?  Because of the expression on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's face.  It is known as the hostage expression.  Something that came to my mind was that this might be an actual state of mind as a result of having worked with the Trump administration.

Here's Rod Rosenstein before:

Here he is at the press conference:
Don't pictures tell a story!  He's not the first to stand behind Trump with the "hostage expression"  - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie did the same on Super Tuesday in 2016 and then went on The Tonight Show to "explain it."  I wonder who might be next.

We approach Easter Sunday with its religious and secular traditions. Supposedly the Germans brought the Easter bunny to America in 1the 1700s with German immigrants in Pennsylvania.  The tradition was an egg-laying hare.  The evolution since then:  This year's White House Easter Egg Roll is on April 22nd.  There were 18,000 eggs in last year's event.
