A mysterious phenomenon just appeared on the White House lawn

A giant gaping hole appeared at the White House today and, no, the president did not bring Anthony Scaramucci back into the fold.

In reality, a sinkhole has developed on the White House’s North Lawn, so observed reporters on site on Tuesday.

Voice of America‘s Steve Herman snapped some photos of the geological shift which he posted to Twitter:

His caption reads “This week, I’ve been observing the sinkhole on the @WhiteHouse North Lawn, just outside the press briefing room.”

The White House has yet to comment on plans to fix the sinkhole, though considering its proximity to Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ barrage of lies and deflection the grass is probably just trying to escape to somewhere less hostile.

A sinkhole is the kind of scandal not seen since the Obama administration, when he wore the tan suit which set the world on fire. It’s actually a refreshing change from the usually sludge pouring forth from Trump’s White House.

The best thing to come from this strange, seemingly newsless story is the social media response to the news. Here are some of the saltiest responses:


Perhaps satire isn’t dead, after all.

This story has been edited from its original version which accused VOA journalist Steve Herman of propaganda in a poorly constructed paragraph. Article was updated to reflect he was merely the source of the image of the sinkhole. 

Join millions calling for AG Barr to resign after he defied his constitutional obligations to protect Trump!
