CNN Reporter Joe Johns Goes Off on Raccoon on White House Lawn

Frickin ‘raccoons, man … they’re fiery little beasts – especially DC ones – as a CNN reporter Joe johns learned by trying to report on President Trumpcalendar of.
The hilarious moment of levity unfolded early Wednesday morning on one of the lawns of the White House as an annoying raccoon interrupted Joe preparing for a live shot.
Joe held on and yelled, “Get !!! AHHHHHH !!!!” … trying to scare off the hairy photobomber. He even threw a large object in his direction, but the raccoon kept coming.
JJ moved closer to losing his temper and had some harsh words … but we’ll pay tribute to him for not swearing while wearing a hot mic.
Apparently it’s a persistent problem at 4:00 p.m. in Pennsylvania – Joe later tweeted that this was the second time in 2 weeks that a raccoon had shown up on his morning shift. He also dropped an important fact … “No animals were hurt. I threw something to scare them.”
The White House these days – if COVID doesn’t understand you, raccoons will!
