There are vermin roaming around the White House!

On Tuesday, the press briefing room in the West Wing was busier than it has been in the last six months, thanks to a mouse that dropped from the ceiling and onto a reporter, reported People.

NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander received the exclusive scoop when the elusive rodent fell right into his lap.

“A mouse literally fell out of the ceiling in our White House booth and landed on my lap,” Alexander tweeted.

The 43-year-old followed it up with a clip of the mouse scurrying around in a corner near TV equipment and added the caption, “And here’s the video to prove it.”

The four-legged creature caused panic after he escaped Alexander’s office area and made his way to the briefing room as reporters scrambled to try and catch him.

Several members of the press shared updates as the mouse ran amok while the search intensified.

According to sources, the sneaky pest was never caught.

The rodent was lovingly named "Liddle Fuzzball," inspired by a misspelling in a tweet from the President.

The mouse was the biggest story to come directly out of the briefing room in over 200 days, as there hasn’t been a White House press briefing since March 11th.

Following Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ departure this summer, newly installed press secretary Stephanie Grisham has yet to hold a briefing.

Regardless of where you stand politically, it’s safe to say there is a rat in the White House. And that’s not fake news.
