The White House press corps has been bugged.

The departure of the charter plane ferrying members of the press corps to Europe to cover President Joe Biden’s first foreign trip was delayed for seven hours overnight after cicadas “invaded the engine and caused mechanical issues,” The Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

The plane was set to take off from from Dulles International Airport in Virginia at 9 p.m., but didn’t leave until nearly 4 a.m.

“The White House press charter, flying from Dulles to Europe ahead of President Biden, has been delayed for hours — due to mechanical issues caused by cicadas. Yes. Cicadas,” Associated Press White House reporter Jonathan Lemire wrote on Twitter.

You can’t even make this stuff up.

Those of us in the AF who flew VIPS around would’ve cared. But I understand some haters wouldn’t care about the drew.

Well, that’s one way to be sure the press misses the spectacle of fall-up-steps Joe’s arrival in the EU.

Let the truth be known. Even the bugs hate the Democrats – and for good reason!

Should leave bugs in and fill with only the Fake Media and half of America’s Problems could possibly have been solved if it crashed!
