White House counselor Kellyanne Conway might have seen a rat in front of the White House, and no it wasn’t a leaker.

During an interview with CNN outside the White House on Friday, Conway paused for a brief moment as she apparently witnessed a rodent run nearby.

"God, I hope that's a squirrel and not a rat,” she said. “Hi, squirrel."

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota laughed and Conway noted, “It’s better than the lawnmower that’s always back there.”

The exchange became a Twitter moment as it made its rounds on social media with people finding humor in Conway greeting a squirrel.
