CNN White House correspondent Abby Phillip stomped on a lizard attempting to climb on her on Friday, a scenario she later called “literally my nightmare” during a live report on the network’s morning program.
The lizard attack occurred while Phillip, reporting from West Palm Beach, Florida, joined CNN anchors Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota during a panel discussion early Friday morning to discuss the Mueller report.
“Abby, what was that?” asked Cuomo in halting the discussion after Abby appeared to be rattled.
“There was a lizard climbing on me. Sorry,” Phillip replied.
