A rat ran through a live camera shot as a reporter discussed outrage over President Donald Trump’s claim the city of Baltimore, Maryland was rat-infested and needed to be cleaned up.
On Monday, Reporter Maxine Streicher was on-air live in the city’s Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood, saying residents think Trump should visit Baltimore and see its condition for himself:
“Now, we spoke with many people today, who say the president should consider coming here to Baltimore, to the Sandtown area, and taking a look at things for himself.”
As the camera panned to a shot of an alley, a rat scurried out from behind a bag of trash, and ran along the wall and around the corner.
