Who can keep a US president waiting? No doubt, another president.
President Barack Obama waited for former President Bill Clinton to board Air Force One on Friday, shouting several times, “Bill, let’s go!”
Obama and Clinton were about to head back to the US after attending the funeral of Israel’s former president, Shimon Peres, who died Wednesday at age 93.
Video captured in front of the plane’s entrance shows Obama anxiously waiting in the doorway of Air Force One, and clapping his hands at Clinton, who was chatting on the tarmac.
“Bill, let’s go,” Obama shouted, waving Clinton toward the plane while rolling up his sleeves.
Moments later, the commander-in-chief, who seemed to grow impatient, stepped outside of the plane, walked to the top of the staircase, and yelled, “Bill, let’s go, I gotta get home!”
The talkative former president finally climbed the stairs, shook hands with Obama, and the two patted each other’s backs as they walked into the plane.
