This seems like a plot line straight out of Scandal!
Press Secretary Josh Earnest had a terrifying moment on Tuesday when a bomb threat was reported in the briefing right in the middle of his press address.
The Secret Service were quick to usher Josh and all of the reporters out of the briefing room, but not before the feed showing the statement was cut.

President Barack Obama was also at the White House at the time of the incident, but was far enough away from the room that he was not at harm.
Viewers on Twitter were a little annoyed that they didn't get to see just how the Secret Service operated their evacuation… but it would kind of be beside the point if the Secret Service didn't keep their ish, ya know, secret.
Everything's already back to normal, but we're just glad that everyone is safe!
