White House Press Plane Delayed 7 Hours By Cicadas


The White House press corps has been bugged.

Literally.

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.

Just before 4 a.m., he wrote: “And after a delay of nearly 7 hours, we’re finally wheels up to the UK and the G7. Stupid cicadas.”
