It would appear that there’s a newbie in the White House press pool.
Cox Radio reporter Jamie Dupree posted on social media an observation made by a member of the press covering President Barack Obama that someone flipped off the presidential motorcade:

Other than indicating that Sunday was a slow news day, a quick scan of social media shows there wasn’t anything newsworthy about the observation — aside from a member of the press actually mentioning it:

WH pooler spots someone giving motorcade the middle finger tonight in NYC. Says unclear whether twas for Obama, traffic or something else.

But a photo snapped in 2012 of a man greeting a sharp-looking presidential bus, dubbed Ground Force One, beats all contenders:
The reaction to Dupree’s tweet showed the man had a few kindred spirits out there… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
