President Donald J. Trump appointed Punxsutawney Phil to the Coronavirus Task Force on Wednesday, making him the first groundhog to ever serve the US in an official capacity.
Some experts have claimed the COVID-19 virus will die off during the summer months, while others claim that it may last for months after the temperatures warm.
President Trump reportedly told Vice President Pence, “Get me that Phil guy in Pennsylvania that does all the meteorology work, he’s always right!”
When the president was informed that Phil was in fact an animal he responded, “Great, that’s just what I want on this task force, animals! He’ll do great, believe it.”
Punxsutawney Phil has since gone on record as predicting 6 more weeks of the Coronavirus.
