The White House gardener has said that all of the trees on the White House property are infested with cicadas.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Vice-President Joe Biden has just made an announcement to the White House Press Corps.

He said that he was told by the White House gardener that every single tree located on The White House grounds is infested with the pesky, noisy cicada insects.

The vice-president was told that as a result all of the trees on the White House property will need to be burned down in order to rid them of the dreaded cicadas.

The veep was told that merely spraying them with insect killer will not work as these cicadas are some of the strongest insects found in the entire world of insects.

When asked where the money will come from to pay for what will probably be one huge bill the vice-president smiled and said that it will probably come from The White House Rainy Day Fund.
