In the age of terrorism, it’s hard to know what’s truly scary and what’s not. The president’s representatives are saying that President Obama’s motorcade had to make a u-turn after a gas can was found waiting for him at an intersection in North Carolina.
Wilkes County sheriff’s deputies say that the can had been sitting there for several days, but the Secret Service took all precautions. The Winston-Salem bomb squad was called in, and they were able to get rid of the can with no danger to the president.
The president spoke at the West Wilkes High School to promote his jobs bill.
