Some may find his admission admirable, and maybe it is. I find it unnecessary and hilarious. We all know Al Roker from NBC's Today Show. We all know about his gastric bypass surgery, and amazing weight loss. What we did not know, until now, is Roker "sharted" in the White House, then went commando to a press conference.

He needlessly revealed his accident during an interview on Dateline to NBC correspondent Nancy Snyderman.

Here's how it went down.

"I probably went off and ate something I wasn't supposed to. And as I'm walking to the press room, I had to pass a little gas here... So I was walking by myself down the hall... and a lil something extra came out."

Snyderman then clarifies for her audience, "You pooped your pants."

And Roker confirms it, "I pooped my pants. Not horribly. But I went to the restroom, threw out my underwear and went commando."

Ok, I've got a question. What is a TV weatherman doing at a White House press conference?
