Watch: President Obama’s Limo Gets Stuck Exiting US Embassy

(By Jon Bershad, Mediaite) - The Obamas have begun a six-day tour of Europe today with a stop in Ireland and already you can see the foreign media just lining up to take snippy shots at them. I mean, just look at this headline from 'The Daily Mail' where they make fun of the First Lady’s hair getting blown in the wind. God, how petty can you be? Don’t you think we can actually cover important stuff like what being discussed during these – wait, what’s that? Obama’s armored car got caught on a ramp trying to leave the US embassy in Dublin? And there’s video? Ok, forget everything I just said, that’s hilarious!
