Video: Obama’s Cadillac gets stuck

In hilarious and rather implausible scenes this afternoon, Barack Obama’s Cadillac-badged limousine beached itself on a speed bump as it tried to leave the American Embassy in Dublin.

It’s not known if Obama was actually inside ‘Cadillac One’ - a GMC Topkick-based armored car that’s fitted with highly classified defence tech - but it was grounded for several minutes while the secret service heaved it off the bump.

Barack and the First Lady left security officials hiding the beefed-up ‘Lac, nicknamed ‘The Beast’, from view and found a different exit.
