On a recent trip to Alaska, President Obama took time out of his schedule to make an appearance on the ‘Running Wild with Bear Grylls’.
While on the show, Bear Grylls prepared a snack he and the president could share, witch was a half-eaten salmon that an actual bear had left behind. Grylls tells Obama, “Alaska is a land of bear and salmon. We haven’t got bear, but this is for real, I found this on the river bank OK? Don’t freak out too much, but this is half-eaten by a bear.”
After learning that bears apparently prefer the fat of the fish and not the meat, the commander-in-chief replied, “Why wouldn’t the bear finish this sucker? This looks like a nice lookin’ piece of fish.”
Obama said that his trip to Alaska was one of the best days of his presidency and admitted to being relieved to be out of the office and out of a suit. The President’s episode of ‘Running Wild with Bear Grylls’ is expected to air some time this autumn.
