White House reporters are used to getting attacked as "fake news" these days, but on Monday several were reportedly "attacked" in a whole new way: by an angry raccoon.
In an incident that sparked viral jokes on Twitter, CBS's Paula Reid said a raccoon on the White House lawn had "attacked multiple news crews."
"Strong Pawnee vibes at White House this morning as a raccoon attacked multiple news crews on North Lawn. allegedly grabbed pant leg of a photographer & then a corespondent [sic] before being fended off," she tweeted, referring to the fictional town of Pawnee, Ind. from the sitcom "Parks and Recreation," where raccoons are a frequent nuisance.

I hope the raccoon didn’t catch anything from coming into contact with the rabid press animals.
No one worries about rabies?
Wondering how the press was going to spin Trump having coons at the White house.
Raccoons are pretty smart and appear to be a damn good judge of character too!!
Just trash pandas going after trash!
The press is already rabid.
Was gonna say, when you see raccoons out in broad daylight acting weird it is almost always rabies.
Raccoons know road kill when they see it
Raccoons always vote Conservative...
Raccoons for notorious for stealing mail-in ballots.
That raccoon is darn lucky It encountered leftists near the White House and not at one of these Black Lives Matter rallies. There was a video a couple months ago of some hapless raccoon that wandered in to one of these Black Lives Matter demonstrations, and the leftists ran over it twice with cars and crippled it so the thing couldnt run (Broke its back I think) and then gleefully be the thing to death with a baseball bat to the cheers of the crowd.
I know raccoons are considered to be vermin, but there was something joyful in the way they dispatched it, as if it was blood sport.
Rumor has it, Raccoons have Biden’s marbles in a lock box.
They sold off his testicles to the squirrels.
All those reporters and no current pictures? Fake news.
