The Daily Caller retracted its article but Johnson hasn’t apologized or even removed his social media posts.

The far-right Daily Caller has retracted an article that caused a right-wing meltdown by falsely claiming the Biden administration banned religious Easter eggs from a White House art contest.

In reality, a rule prohibiting religious egg designs at the White House event has been in place since 1978, including during Donald Trump’s tenure.

The misleading article became part of the transphobic frenzy over the fact that the Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) happened to fall on Easter this year (it always takes place on March 31st, whereas Easter changes dates annually).

    Yes, the name Easter is even derived from the name of that Pagan fertility goddess, Eostre.

      I like the idea of an Easter dragon. Let’s make that happen.
