Nobody is really sure, or explaining how it happened, but President Obama’s limousine is on a flat bed
after somebody refueled the vehicle with unleaded gasoline instead of the required diesel. The specially-built Presidential limo, the Cadillac One, uses GM’s GMC Topkick/Chevrolet Kodiak chassis.
The President is currently in Israel, on a state visit to meet with the country’s leaders; it’s Obama’s first on-record time in doing so. Reportedly, there’s a replacement limousine on its way from Jordan.
Considering America’s ever-mounting, gargantuan debt, we like to theorize that “The Beast” was probably repo’d.
According to the latest intel, Cadillac One did not break down because the wrong fuel was used — which seemed like a far-fetched reason for the vehicle to end up on a flat bed in the first place. We figured that the vehicle’s handlers would be more intelligent than that, but we gave the benefit of the doubt. Whatever the reason, the vehicle wouldn’t start, and a secondary limousine was brought forth to transport Mr. President upon his arrival.
A Secret Service spokesperson has decreed that “the appropriate gas was put in the car,” which is actually unleaded gasoline, and not diesel fuel, as originally reported. But because of the confidential nature of the vehicle, an actual reason as to why “The Beast” ended up on a flatbed truck was not provided. It was, however, stated that diagnostics are still ongoing.
Contradicting all of that is an Israeli official that stands by the original story that the presidential limousine was filled with the wrong type of fuel. The plot thickens.
