Shirtless Biden Washes Trans Am In White House Driveway | The Onion - America’s Finest News Source

White House aides said that Biden pulled into the driveway shortly before noon, the chorus of Night Ranger’s “(You Can Still) Rock In America” blaring from his car’s stereo. According to witnesses, Biden spent several minutes maneuvering the Trans Am into the perfect spot, and was observed drumming his fingers on the steering wheel until the song came to a close.

Still one of my favorite all-time Onion jokes. See also, the NYTimes: The Onion Strikes Comic Gold With Biden Spoofs:

The Onion has doubled down on its caricatures, even hiring a body double to pose in pictures so editors can Photoshop in Mr. Biden’s head to create images of him, for example, washing his Trans Am — in cutoff jeans and no shirt — on the South Lawn of the White House. The caption: “Vice President Biden ditched a day of presiding over the Senate to ‘give the twin cannons some sun.’ ”

Gold.
