The TODAY Show’s Al Roker returned to the White House this week and left with clean underwear–unlike his infamous visit shortly after having gastric bypass surgery more than a decade ago. It’s actually quite a milestone that he left with his underwear at all, because on that fateful visit he left his soiled ‘tightie whities’ in the White House trash can.
According to a report from TMZ, Al covered the White House Easter festivities on Monday and spoke with TODAY Show viewers against a festive back drop of Easter eggs, the Easter Bunny and other distinguished guests on the White House lawn. He chatted with Michelle Obama on live camera about all the fun.
It came to light in just the past couple of months that when Al visited the White House several years back her did in fact poop his pants. He spoke about it unabashedly in a recent interview. Can you even begin to imagine how embarrassing that must have been for The TODAY Show weather man and reporter? You can catch a clip of that, as well as Al with clean pants by clicking on the TMZ link above.
Kudos to Al Roker (no, not for visiting the White House without pooping his pants) for having the dignity to return to the scene of his crime. A lesser man would have turned down the prestigious assignment for fear of being targeted by Secret Service agents as the NBC employee who left DNA behind (from his behind?) on a previous visit.
