So are we going to talk about this?
Just one day after Biden left his ritzy Nantucket Thanksgiving, all of the vehicles that were rented by the Secret Service for Biden’s detail burst into flames.
From Fox News:
President Biden’s rented Secret Service vehicles burst into flames in a parking lot Monday, just one day after he left his Nantucket vacation.
Biden spent Thanksgiving on the ritzy Massachusetts island with his family last week. The Secret Service rented five vehicles from Hertz to carry the president and his family, and all five of them caught fire in the parking lot, according to footage first obtained by the Nantucket Current.
Footage shows firefighters spraying down the smoldering remains of one vehicle’s engine block. The five vehicles included a Chevy Suburban, Ford Explorer, Infiniti QX80, Ford Expedition, and a Jeep Gladiator.
If it wasn’t for an employee who noticed the blaze, it could have been worse; just 40 feet from where the blaze started were jet fuel tanks.
The vehicles were parked at the Nantucket airport and the blaze reportedly spread to just 40 feet away from the facility’s jet fuel tanks. It is currently unknown what caused the fire. Fox News reached out to the White House for information, but they did not immediately respond.
“At approximately 5:22 am Airport shift staff observed an active fire in the rental car overflow area through the Airport’s Closed Circuit Television System,” the airport said in a statement to the Current. “Staff activated the Alert system and responded to the fire in Airport-3, where they were met by responding units from Nantucket Fire Department and Nantucket Police Department.”
The whole incident is getting buried, all the local Cap Cod paper had to say was, “the cause of the fire is under investigation.”
However, the Nantucket Current kept digging and found that the Ford vehicles had yet to receive a recall on the battery junction box.
“If your Expedition SUV is included in this recall, there is a chance the battery junction box can cause a fire. As a safety precaution, park outside and away from structures if possible. If you see smoke while driving, find a safe place to pull over and park, then call your Ford dealer for service,” the carmaker has on the website.
So nobody thought to make sure the vehicles that held the President and his family were safe?
The recall, which has not been declared as the cause of the fire (but prob will be) hasn’t stopped some crazy conspiracy theories from going viral on the internet.
