Al Roker: ‘I Pooped My Pants’ At The White House



http://www.mediaite.com/tv/al-roker-i-pooped-my-pants-at-the-white-house/

On last night’s Dateline NBC, Al Roker opened up about a terribly embarrassing incident that occurred more than ten years ago while he was covering an event at the White House. Just one month after he underwent gastric bypass surgery, Roker tried to “pass gas” as he was headed to the press room, “but a little something extra came out.”

Roker explained that right after the bowel reconstruction surgery “you think you’re pretty safe” but you still have to be careful. He tried to be delicate in his explanation of the unfortunate incident, but the interviewer laid it all out on the table declaring, “You pooped your pants.” Dutifully, Roker responded, “I pooped my pants. Not horribly, but I knew… and, so I was panicking, so I got to the restroom of the press room, threw out the underwear, you know, and just went commando.”

The moral of the story according to Roker is that “I’ve got to be very vigilant as to what I eat.” Another lesson we all can learn from an episode like this is: avoiding farting in the White House at all costs.

17. I don't know why any professional, who hopes to be taken seriously in future, would expose something

so personal. What's the point of this?

On a side note, my 36 y.o. nephew, who went from meat eater to vegetarian, experienced a similar incident in the produce section of a grocery store, at about week two of his dietary change. He complained of lots of gas for the first few weeks. We had a good laugh about it, but that's family. I don't know why Al would make this kind of disclosure.

Al Roker plays the role of the buffoon, on that show. The rest of the cast seem to demean him.

25. Actually, it was kind of relevant.

The whole story was about Roker's battle with his weight. He had gastric bypass surgery before this WH visit, and one of the side effects is "dumping syndrome", where you get liquid farts if you eat something that is too fatty. I am glad he told it. It's a cautionary tale regarding about gastric bypass surgery. Lots of people think it's the easy way to lose weight, when in reality, it has all sorts of unpleasant, and sometimes dangerous side-effects.

46. In that context

It was generous and brave of him to share such a personal story that some might denigrate him for without knowing the whole story. Kudos to him for his honesty and trying to help others in the process.

This is a serious issue with a few gastric issues, which can be deliberating.

40. It's because they play the same role as the clown of the show.

 

That Al Roker White House story had probably been passed around at the water cooler at NBC for a long time, then some dope on Dateline does a story on Gastric Bypass surgery and some assistant producer says, "Didn't Roker get bypass surgery? Didn't he shit himself at the White House? We need him!" I wouldn't be surprised if Roker was ordered to tell the story for the segment.
