The president’s son is burning up the internet, thanks to a viral photo that seems to show him being interviewed by a chocolate bunny.
Donald Trump Jr. wasn’t really talking to an inanimate object. It just looked like he was.

On Monday, Donald Trump’s eldest son was in Pennsylvania, campaigning for a Republican seeking an empty House of Representatives seat. While stumping at a candy factory, Trump was interviewed by a reporter.
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette photographer Andrew Rush snapped an image at an angle that made it look like the edible Easter bunny was holding a microphone under Trump’s chin.
Rush posted the photo on Twitter, where it promptly became an internet sensation.
The first son joined in, writing on social media, “The chocolate rabbit gave a hard-hitting interview and was delicious afterwards.”

Many of the comments posted online took aim at Trump’s June 2016 meeting with a Russian attorney, where the president’s son was reportedly promised “dirt” on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Other posters just cracked wise.
