Sharknado 3's 5 Most Fin-Tastic Moments in Washington, D.C.

Natalie Morales, co-anchor of NBC News' Today, said, "I don't think our nation's capitol is ready for Sharknado 3," and she was probably right. Now that Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! is a reality, it's time to see how Washington, D.C. was depicted in the campy SciFi movie. While the movie begins in D.C., most of the film is centered in Florida with a few scenes set in space because why not. With only about 15 minutes of the film set in the nation's capitol, those 15 minutes result in a gun-toting president, the protagonist using a golden machine gun like golden machine guns are a normal thing, and the Vice President expertly surfing down one of the staircases in the White House. For those who want to relive the movie and for those who absolutely refuse to see it (but want to know what all the fuss is about), check out Sharknado 3's five most fin-tastic moments in the below photo gallery.
