CNN reporter’s confrontation with raccoon at White Household goes viral

CNN’s Joe Johns went viral on Tuesday night time right after a confrontation with a raccoon on the White Household lawn.

The network’s senior Washington correspondent can be noticed in the video clip throwing what appeared to be a get the job done bag at the animal while making an attempt to shoo it away.

“Frickin’ raccoons, male. God, yet again! This is the next time! Jesus … It usually arrives close to ideal all over when I’m about to go on Television … get!” a pissed off Johns claimed prior to growling at the raccoon.

Johns was praised on social media for how he managed the situation, with other folks saying the conversation encapsulated a tumultuous 2020.

Tuesday evening wasn’t the very first time reporters have encountered raccoons on White Home property. CBS Information White Residence correspondent Paula Reid on Sept. 29 claimed a raccoon experienced “attacked multiple news crews” on Sept. 29.
