A sinkhole has opened up on the White House lawn -- and the internet wasted no time making jokes about it.
Breitbart News reporter Charlie Spiering on Tuesday posted a photo of the sinkhole, which he said appeared close to White House staffer Hogan Gidley's office on the North Lawn.

Reactions to media reports on the sinkhole were swift, as many jokingly speculated that someone might have been using the tunnel as a secret means to enter -- or escape from -- the Trump White House.
