Obama’s “The Beast” Bottoms Out [VIDEO]
President Barack Obama's heavily armored Cadillac, nicknamed "The Beast", bottomed out and got stuck on a ramp at the US embassy in Dublin. I think he needs a lift kit! I know some guys here in East Texas that could have helped him out. Someone in the background calls the driver a bloody wanker, so you know he is in Ireland.
The first cars in the presidential motorcade came up the ramp from the parking lot in Ballsbridge, and passed through the gates no problem, but "The Beast" quickly ran into trouble and got beached.
As you watch the video you can hear this crazy loud klink like you would at Lufkin Industries. A kind of metal-on-metal, grinding, crunching noise and the car just stops there and a bus parks in front eventually to cover the shame.
The car was stuck on a piece of metal sticking up that the gate might lock into.
Obama and his wife Michelle stayed in the car while security officials and police officers went running over to the stranded vehicle.
After a while, the Obamas switched to another car to drive to the Marine Force One helicopter waiting to whisk them to the village of Moneygall, where one of Obama's great-great-great-grandfathers came from.
The Beast is designed to withstand all manner of attacks. Except speed bumps, and ramps. LOL! - DP
