Amid the off-the-charts political hatred in America today, a car suddenly emerging from the woods as a motorcade transporting President Donald Trump passes by has certainly raised a few eyebrows.
A video captured a white car shooting out of a wooded area and speeding toward the presidential motorcade in Springfield, Missouri on Wednesday, according to KCTV 5.
That this occurred just as “The Beast,” as the presidential limo is nicknamed, appears makes it all the more compelling.
“Oh my gosh! Look at the car that came out of the woods,” shouted a man filming the motorcade. “That car right there just drove out of the woods!”
A concrete embankment prevented the vehicle from making it into the roadway and a vehicle — presumably Secret Service — is seen peeling off to confront the driver.
Springfield Police reported that a female driver lost control of her vehicle after losing her brakes in a nearby Bass Pro warehouse parking lot, KCTV 5 reported.
But to some enthusiasts, failed brakes is hard to accept when considering the bizarre timing at play.
Here’s another take of the moment the car appears, though it appears less dramatic:

The reaction on social media included many claims that the car was trying to ram the presidential motorcade, but that wasn’t the only “theory” at play.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
This plot was a planned Antifa attack on Trump’s motorcade. Without the help of Secret Service, the FBI and Phillys gang units
