Obama's Armored Limo BOTTOMS OUT in Ireland

5/23/2011 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Obama's Secret Service probably needs a whole new set of underwear -- after the Prez's armored limo CRASHED into a nasty speed bump in Dublin today ... and was instantly immobilized.

Talk about luck of the Irish.

UPDATE: A rep for the Secret Service claims Obama was NOT in the vehicle that bottomed out due to a "slight miscalculation" -- telling us, it was a spare limousine carrying staff and support personnel only. There were no injuries.

Ireland? What did he go there for? He should have gone to Kenya instead to see his relatives.

While the video is hilarious the reality isn't so funny. He keeps having mishaps with his travel vehicle/planes. Someone needs to be fired...keeping it real. They are slacking on planning his trips.
I just hope it all isn't a precursor to something terrible that will come his way in the air or car. Then we will all be able to look back at all the ridiculous happenings and say "they should have seen this coming".
STEP IT UP Obama travel team. You guys are dropping the ball...again and again and again. You look like bafooms!
Obama FIRE SOMEONE dang it!!!!!!

It's driver error, supposed to take an incline on an angle to prevent this, the driver should be fired they'd all be dead if someone started to release rounds since he opened the door to the armored car which makes the armor useless..

I was there! It was driving out of the US Embassy at the time so technically it occurred on American soil... :D

just read some of the comments...it seems that TMZ commentators have filed for a patent on ignorance! Its a 8 ton long wheelbase vehicle that caught the apex of a gate speed bump(much larger than a grocery store lot speed bump). Even the BMW 760...il was close to straddling it! JESUS CHRIST READ A BOOK PEOPLE!

Report troy about an hour ago It's driver error, supposed to take an incline on an angle to prevent this, the driver should be fired they'd all be dead if someone started to release rounds since he opened the door to the armored car which makes the armor useless..
You're right but watch the video and you will see he didn't have much room to go at an angle you IDIOT...

You can disable the presidential limo by driving over a speed bump?
What kind of clowns are driving the limo?

And a presidential limo can't handle being driven over a speed bump? How could it survive a real attack?

So What    

The Ass hole was not in the car. It was his staffs car which we pay for them to bring all those costly cars and hundreds of staffers which he does not need. When air Force one goes up the second one also flies to keep them guessing which one he is in. What a waste of our $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
