Today show meteorologist Al Roker revealed a little TMI during his interview with Dateline Sunday evening as he explained a visit to the White House that went terribly wrong.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Roker appeared on Deadline to discuss his new memoir, Never Going Back. The topic turned to his impressive 140-pound weight loss, which the book also discusses, when the weather man discussed his gastric bypass surgery from 2002 and the effects it had on his body as a whole.
One month after the surgery, Roker had the privilege to visit the White House and speak with President George W. Bush. While walking down a hallway by himself, Roker reveals he needed to pass some gas as his stomach was bothering him.
He explains, “I probably went off and ate something I wasn't supposed to. And as I'm walking to the press room, [I'm thinking] well, I gotta pass a little gas here. I'm walking by myself. Who's gonna know? Only a little something extra came out. I pooped my pants."
Nancy, the interviewer, remained shocked by his openness asking, “You pooped in your pants?”Ology reports.
Roker confirmed, "I pooped my pants. Not horribly, but enough that I knew. I was panicking, so I got to the restroom of the press room, threw out the underwear and just went commando."
