TEL AVIV/WASHINGTON: There can be only one person who can keep the President of the United States waiting. A former tardy US President who is short on time.
The happened when President Barack Obama was seen waiting impatiently for former President Bill Clinton on Air Force One at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel after attending the funeral of former Israeli President Shimon Peres
Obama was seen standing just inside the doorway of the plane with his tie loosened, and waving at Clinton to get on the jet.
“Bill, let’s go!” he yelled while rolling up his sleeves.
Then someone on the flight crew says something to Obama and he smiles and shakes his head.
“Bill! Let’s go!” Obama calls again to Clinton who moves slowly at the bottom of the stairs and other people board.
“Bill! Let’s go. Let’s go home,” Obama says after he walks on the plane’s mobile stairs.
Clinton finally arrives after greeting people who were seeing off the US delegation, and strides on up the steps.
The two presidents finally go arm-in-arm into Air Force One back to Washington.
