Disney hosted a screening of the latest film in the Star Wars franchise for the President and Gold Star families at the White House.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest did appear in the Briefing Room with Star Wars characters as well. Of course, many are now wondering if the White House has aligned itself with the First Order.
