In addition to appearing surprised for a moment, you must hand it to Phillip to have largely maintained and not to run screaming as I would have done. Of course, Phillip have faced much larger lizards so it's not surprising that he handled this incident well.
And she played it all with a laugh, even when viewers began to enter.
Phillip was reporting from West Palm Beach, where President Trump spent a quiet vacation weekend after the publication of the highly anticipated Mueller report. So, the lizard attack is just a warm up for what should be an interesting weekend.
And, in case you're worried about the lizard's well-being, do not be: it's okay.
Just another day in the surreal dream of the 2019 fever.
