Like Channing Tatum and Michelle Rodriguez before him, President Barack Obama got wild with Bear Grylls. Unlike Channing Tatum and Michelle Rodriguez, he didn’t drink his own pee or do shirtless backflips off a helicopter. Psh, I bet Franklin Pierce would’ve done both, at the same time.
Obama did, however, take a selife in Alaska and eat salmon that had previously been gnawed on by a bear (as opposed to Bear). “I’ve seen some of the stuff Bear eats, and it’s gotta be something that doesn’t still have its legs and eyes on it. I want it not to be too recognizable,” Obama said. “Bear’s a mediocre cook, but the fact that we ate something recognizable was encouraging. Now, the fact that he told me this was a leftover fish from a bear, I don’t know if that was necessary. He could have just left that out.”
The episode largely focused on climate change, and the president’s team reached out to Bear, who was “mega-nervous” to be surrounded by “the incredible Secret Service team, the snipers in the mountain, the helicopters in the air.” But he felt right home sipping on piss, which Obama refused to do.
“I suppose, in extremis, it’s something that I would do—if the alternative was death,” he said. “It’s not something I’d make a habit of. And I probably wouldn’t do it just for a TV show.” (Via)
Donald Trump would gladly do it. So much sh*t already comes out of his mouth — what’s a little pee going in?
