    I was hoping to see how his protection detail handled the "boom".

    There was a story Obama told about how his friend got a new car that was crazy fast and he drove it around the White House. I had the feeling it was a Model S. He didn't say, so I could be wrong.

    Obama said his protection detail lost it over his joy ride.

    I really hope it was a Tesla.

    I've also heard that it was a new electric car. I'm pretty sure that means Tesla.

    To be fair, if you were chauffeured everywhere for the past decade (or more) you'd probably say the same thing...

    Pretty sure the White House vehicle was a Chevy Volt. Be willing to bet that after he's done in D.C., his next EV adventure will be in a Tesla ;-)
