Very early this morning the President of the United States, Barack Obama, grabbed his family and fled the White House. They are now residing in the Watergate Hotel.
A terrorist threat to the White House?
A practice run for 2012?
No, it was an attack of bedbugs in the middle of the night that drove them out.
"I guess I carried them in after completing my helping fellow Democrats campaigning for the November elections", he told the Press this morning.
"We only took enough clothing for a couple of days as the pest control people say they will be through by then", stated first lady, Michelle Obama. "Meanwhile, I'll
be taking Mom and the girls to Paris for a quick shopping trip."
She vowed to hold the cost down to under $1,000,000.
Pest control expert Barry Gourmet has stated that they have killed over 10,000 bedbugs already and over 200 Fed Bugs from the previous administration.
"There were four Fed Bugs in the Obama bed plus a couple of old ones that go back to the Clinton days. They were also inside Bill Clinton's old desk now in a back storage room."
