Obama’s Limo Breaks Down In Israel After Being Filled With Diesel


obama-the-beastPresident Obama’s limousine, the armored vehicle known as “The Beast,” broke down today at Ben-Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel, after being wrongly filled with diesel instead of gasoline.

According to the Times of Israel, the vehicle would not start, and another presidential limousine was flown in as a replacement.

The president arrived in Israel this morning for a two-day visit.

The newspaper reported that Channel 2 put the blame on the visitors: “The Americans filled it up with diesel, rather than petrol.”

  1. I wonder if it was deliberate, even children without a driver’s licence know a gasoline engine gets damaged if filled with diesel. One would think that the president’s car is fueled by the gas station attendant, not by some random passer-by.
