    Trump plans to take 'The Beast' for a lap at Daytona 500

    President Trump is planning on taking the presidential limo, known as "The Beast," for a ride at the Daytona 500.

    The White House is working with NASCAR officials for Trump to do a lap on the Daytona track in Florida to start off the racing season on Sunday, sources told Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts, who said the plan is "not 100%" as the logistics are still being worked out.

    SCOOP: Multiple Sources tell @foxNews that @realDonaldTrump is planning to take a lap at the @DISupdates Daytona International Speedway in the ďBeastĒ presidential limo ahead of the Daytona 500. Itís not 100%, but that is the plan at the moment.
    ó John Roberts (@johnrobertsFox) February 15, 2020

    Trump plans to attend the Daytona 500, which marks the start to NASCARís 2020 season, on his way back to Washington, D.C., after a weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. A Trump campaign adviser leaked plans for the stop earlier in the week.

    "Itís the base," a Trump campaign adviser said. "God-fearing, country-loving Americans."

    NASCAR welcomed the presidentís visit and named him the grand marshal of Sundayís race, making Trump the first sitting president to hold the honor.

    "Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting Presidents of the United States over our history," Daytona International Speedway President Chip Wile said in a statement. "Weíre honored that the President of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ĎThe Great American Raceí by attending Sundayís 62nd annual Daytona 500."

    "The Beast," which looks like a Cadillac XT6 sedan, is the presidentís armored car. It weighs close to 10 tons and costs roughly $1.5 million. It comes with safety features to protect the president from a wide range of threats, including terrorism or an assassination attempt. The car carries a variety of medical supplies, including a fridge stocked with Trumpís blood type.

    "The Beast" is a great nickname to give the presidential limo.

    NYT’s Reporter Blasts Trump for Using ‘The Beast’ at Daytona for Apparent ‘Political Event’

    There were no shortage of reactions on social media Sunday as President Trump led the field on a pace lap in the presidential limo, aka “The Beast.”

    However, one reaction from a media member read more like a legal charge against the president, than a mere observation.

    Maggie Haberman, a reporter for the New York Times, captioned a tweet showing the president’s limo on the track and cited Trump for using the “apparatus of government” for a “what appears to be a political event.”

    Using the official apparatus of government for what appears to be a political event https://t.co/GWNm8io8O1

    — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) February 16, 2020

    Haberman’s observation was not a winner with Twitter users.

    To be blunt, get a life, Maggie. Obama went to a #MarchMadness game and that was fine. Relax. I know the #Daytona500 is the opposite of what The Times represents readership-wise, but chill.

    Of course, the Daytona 500 is the Great American Race, and not a “political event.” The president’s limo, “The Beast,” is also Trump’s designated vehicle to use while serving as president. Not sure exactly what vehicle Haberman thinks the president should have used, not sure anyone cares what she thinks either.

    Media, Pundits Triggered by Trump’s ‘Taxpayer Funded’ Daytona Lap in ‘The Beast’

    https://www.breitbart.com/sports/202...-in-the-beast/

    T he collapse of the Russian and Ukrainian impeachment hoaxes has left a huge void to fill in the left’s ceaseless war on the will of the American voter.

    Though, on Sunday, liberal pundits and journalists averted their longing gaze from Eastern Europe and focused on something far closer to home, to satisfy their need for evidence of Trumpian evil: The president’s car.

    The presidential limousine, known to many as “The Beast,” led the field of drivers on a pace lap at the Daytona 500. The scene was unlike any other we’ve scene in previous Daytona races, as the president rode in his official vehicle and led the more than 40 drivers around the track.

    However, several members of the mainstream media were less than enthralled with the intermingling of presidential power with the Great American Race.

    NBC White House Correspondent Kelly O’Donnell noted that the trip to Daytona was an “official White House event.” Meaning, that the president’s appearance and trip around the track in “The Beast,” was paid for by the “taxpayers.”

    This was an official White House event therefore paid by taxpayers as @realDonaldTrump @FLOTUS attended Daytona 500 today and “The Beast” limo ran a pace car lap around the track. pic.twitter.com/xb0QdBYEEI

    — Kelly O'Donnell (@KellyO) February 16, 2020

    However, most of the taxpayers who responded to O’Donnell’s tweet, seemed to have no problem with the presidential trip around the track.

    And America loved it.

    Former Democratic Congresswoman Katie Hill seemed to have trouble knowing what to do with the abundance of emotions that President Trump’s trip in “The Beast” had stirred up.

    At a restaurant. Trump and a motorcade at the Daytona 500 comes on the TV. I literally don’t know whether to laugh or cry or scream or just sigh. All. We’re gonna go with all.

    And of course, who could forget New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who sounded like she was preparing a legal charge against the president for his lap around the track.

    Others opined as well:

    “Trump had no public events listed on the presidential schedule for Sunday.

    The reason why no other president has taken a lap in the presidential limo at Daytona before is that it is illegal.

    Donald Trump didn’t make history on Sunday.

    He broke another law.” https://t.co/qIwtxp6K66

    Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) knew that sharing video of Trump in “The Beast” might trigger a bout of Trump Derangement Syndrome, and he was right.

    The presidential limo is not owned by Trump. It is owned by the taxpayers. Trump went to the Daytona 500 as part of his presidential election campaign. It wasn’t an official presidential event.

    The Daytona 500 is of course, the Great American Race, not a “political event.” However, the president will soon depart for a swing through the Western states of Arizona, Nevada, and Colorado. Those will be political events, Air Force 1 and “The Beast” will also make the trip.

    All that excitement and the race didn't even finish. Postponed to today due to rain. At least they had their halftime entertainment.

    Daytona 500 postponed to Monday afternoon following rain delays

    NASCAR officials postponed the Daytona 500 to Monday afternoon, following a series of rain delays shortly after President Trump appeared at the race, told drivers to start their engines and rode a ceremonial parade lap in his presidential limousine, "The Beast," on Sunday.

    The race will resume Monday at 4 p.m. ET, officials said.

    The postponement came after two lengthy delays totaling over three hours. The first delay came moments after Trump's motorcade completed a ceremonial parade lap around the 2 1/2-mile track.
