Today” pillar Al Rokerhad a messy case of bad timing during a visit to the White House a while ago.

The NBC weatherman tells NBC’s Dr. Nancy Snyderman on “Dateline” Sunday that he made a mess in his pants while visiting the iconic building, according to Us magazine.

Apparently, after undergoing surgery in 2002 and famously shedding over 100 pounds, Roker experienced the accident while walking to the press room. What seemed like gas turned out to be more than he bargained for.

“So, I was panicking,” Roker said. “I got to the restroom of the press room, threw out the underwear and just went commando.”

Apparently, the unexpected bowel movement is a side affect of the surgery.

“When you have a bypass and your bowel has been reconstructed, you think you’re pretty safe,” he explained. “I probably went off and ate something I wasn’t supposed to.”
