Gross! On his highly anticipated episode of ‘Running Wild With Bear Grylls,’ President Barack Obama eats the bloody remains of a bear’s lunch. Click inside to WATCH!
Whoever says the President can’t hang is totally wrong. Not only did Barack Obama, 54, spend 48 hours living in the Alaskan wilderness for an upcoming episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls, but he also had to eat like the wilderness. When his host and tour guide, Bear Grylls, presents a half-eaten piece of salmon for lunch… well, you just have to wait and see how the President reacts!
Does anyone have a cracker for the President? In the above clip, Barack is forced to snack on leftovers that Bear found on the riverbank. When Bear tells him that he “found” their next meal, Barack seems hesitant — especially when the wilderness expert pulls out a bloody piece of salmon packed inside what looks like moss or weeds. Ew!
Believe it or not, President Obama’s first question is: “Now, why wouldn’t the bear finish this sucker?” Ha! Maybe he knew you were hungry, Mr. P.
Once a fire gets going and Bear is able to clean up the fish meat and cook a few pieces, Barack takes a bite out of it. “Mm, that’s tasty.” A moment later he jokes that a “cracker” would have been a nice addition to the meal. Thankfully, Bear is totally into his sense of humor. Too funny!
