BREAKING: The White House is on lockdown after someone threw a TV out of a window


Borowitz Report
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—The White House was on lockdown Thursday morning after a television was hurled out of a window, the Secret Service reported.

The incident, which occurred shortly after 10 a.m. E.S.T., caught the attention of the Secret Service after agents heard the sound of smashing glass emanating from the Oval Office.

“The sound was consistent with that of a large object, such as a television set, being thrown through a closed window,” a Secret Service spokesman said.

The television, which crashed to the ground outside the Oval Office, injured no one, the Secret Service confirmed.

6. Reason number 6 Joe Biden was elected president:

So we could look at a White House headline from the Borowitz Report and know without any doubt that it's satire before we see the publication name.
