Bill Clinton misses out on Tesla ride


Apparently Bill Clinton was mere moments away from picking up chicks experiencing the finest in green transportation all over Burbank, California in a Telsa Roadster. Jeremy Snyder, general manager of the Los Angeles Tesla Store, handed a set of keys to Mr. Clinton at the end of a President’s Day luncheon after the former president expressed interest in driving a Roadster.

At that point, however, secret service agents informed Clinton that it was time to leave. Come on, Secret Service – it was President’s Day! That’s like your bonus birthday if you’ve ever been the president before. Let the guy have a little fun, eh? Apparently during lunch “President Clinton announced he was eager to take the Roadster for a ride around the block.”

Around the block – come on!
