A giant gaping hole appeared at the White House today and, no, the president did not bring Anthony Scaramucci back into the fold.
In reality, a sinkhole has developed on the White House’s North Lawn, so observed reporters on site on Tuesday.
Voice of America‘s Steve Herman snapped some photos of the geological shift which he posted to Twitter:

Voice of America is a government-funded international radio broadcast source that serves as the United States federal government’s official institution for non-military, external broadcasting, though some scholars consider it a form of propaganda.
Propaganda might not be terribly far off, considering that Mr. Herman is not reporting on any of Trump’s scandals or the disastrous Supreme Court decision which chopped the American workforce right off at the knee, and instead focusing his attention on a sinkhole.
For further proof he’s stretching for content, read his caption, “This week, I’ve been observing the sinkhole on the @WhiteHouse North Lawn, just outside the press briefing room,” he writes. Riveting.
The White House has yet to comment on plans to fix the sinkhole, though considering its proximity to Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ barrage of lies and deflection the grass is probably just trying to escape to somewhere less hostile.
A sinkhole is the kind of scandal not seen since the Obama administration, when he wore the tan suit which set the world on fire. It’s actually a refreshing change from the usually sludge pouring forth from Trump’s White House.
More small scandals, less international espionage, please.
Of course, social media found this development to be hilarious. Here’s a sample of some of the best responses:

It's not like a growing sinkhole right outside the press briefing room at the White House has any existential meaning to it at all, right?

Sinkhole appears in White House lawn.
There is no greater metaphor for the Trump Administration than the literal gates of hell opening up in the White House backyard like in 1987's "The Gate".

An actual, literal sinkhole has opened on the White House lawn outside the briefing room on the north side. Even the earth is trolling Trump and I'm here for it

The sinkhole outside the White House is still less destructive than the asshole inside the White House. https://t.co/MfLFa5vQU6
