Sometimes, an unlikely star arises in the most cheesy of situations.
On Friday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer gave a press briefing from Palm Beach, Florida, and stayed off-camera for the session. The cameras had to focus on something, and an enormous, partially eaten jar of cheese balls stepped up.
The news of the day was quite serious: the recent strikes on a Syrian airfield authorized by US President Donald Trump. But those cheese balls just couldn't stay out of the news.
The color of the cheese balls led to a number of presidential comparisons.
Or were the puffy snacks meant to represent the press?
Fans of "The Office" remembered cheese balls were a Scranton staple.
Maybe it's just a sign of the times.
And of course, the bucket of cheese balls immediately nabbed a Twitter account of its own.
