The story was recounted by various affected outlets, like CNN and the New York Times, and it played out on Twitter in real time.
“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,” wrote AP White House reporter Jonathan Lemire. “Yes. Cicadas.”
“No, @JonLemire isn’t kidding,” echoed CNN’s chief White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins. “The White House press charter for the foreign trip is delayed several hours because of cicada-related mechanical issues.”
