President Obama only has a certain number of days left in office, so it would make sense that he wants to cut down his travel time as much as possible.
Apparently former President Bill Clinton never got the memo.
Following the funeral of former Israeli President Shimon Peres, Obama and Clinton “carpooled” their way back to the United States on Air Force One. But before they could get off the tarmac, Obama had to coax Clinton away from his conversation and back on the plane.
ABC News added Obama dialogue and showed him pacing back-and-forth at the door of the jet, urging Clinton to get on board. After multiple unsuccessful attempts, Obama steps onto the edge of the plane, yelling “Bill, let’s go! I’ll take you home!”
Finally, Clinton makes his way up the stairs and back onto Air Force One with President Obama, where the two share a sarcastic embrace of sort.
It’s not the first time the former president has stirred up some controversy on the tarmac. Clinton made news by chatting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on a tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in August.
