I heard the FBI was conducting a raid on the UHaul looking for Hillary’s email server and the Hunter Biden laptop. The van burst into flames right before they could get inside.

The U-Haul got so excited about its upcoming date with destiny on Storrow Drive that it burst into flames prematurely, thus missing its shot at immortality.
