This is quite ironic because of who it happened to…
A mouse caused journalists to scatter in the conference room of the White House on Tuesday after it dropped from the roof onto the lap of an NBC reporter. How ironic…
According to his Twitter, NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander was the unfortunate reporter who provided the mouse with a landing. The mouse started running around the NBC News booth after dropping on his lap.

Reporters started scrambling around the White House meeting room as the mouse left the booth and tried to evade capture, according to various reporters’ tweets that aided in the search. Eamon Javers, a CNBC correspondent, tweeted that there was a “chase underway.”
NBC White House producer Elyse Perlmutter-Gumbiner provided the mouse’s video, tweeting that it “literally fell” out of the roof, and Reuters special correspondent Steve Holland took a picture depicting individuals searching for the animal.
