Meet Bug-Eating, Urine-Drinking TV Outdoorsman Bear Grylls, Obama’s Unlikely Hiking Buddy
Washington Post ^

Posted on 09/03/2015 12:42:13 AM PDT by nickcarraway

As far as hiking buddies go, Barack Obama and Bear Grylls make for an unlikely pairing. Grylls is a TV outdoorsman with a flair for drama and a propensity for drinking his own urine. Obama is cerebral and stolidly even-keeled, and, you know, the president of the United States.

Nevertheless, the strange duo is slated for some bonding Tuesday while hiking the Exit Glacier, a south Alaskan river of ice that has shrunk by 1.25 miles in recent decades. They have no plans to drink urine, Grylls has confirmed, and the adventurer’s usually madcap exploits will be scaled down to “interesting,” in the words of White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

Instead, they’ll talk climate change while testing Obama’s survival skills under the watchful eye of the Secret Service. The whole trip will be taped and will air on Grylls’s NBC show “Running Wild” later this year.

Reggie can vouch that Obama is already an expert in drinking male bodily fluids.

Obama seems to attract strange people who delight in displaying their strange qualities. Plouffe, Messina, Samantha and her husband, Valery Jarrett The Shadow President, Moochelle The Beard, Biden the Toucher, K. Sebelius The Robot, Lois Lerner and Paid Liar sidekick Gnome-Koskersian, the list goes on and on and on!

I didn’t know there were many panthers in Alaska.

Wasn't Bear Grylls the survivalist clown who got caught spending nights in a motel while he was supposed to be “roughing it” in the wilderness for his TV show?

'Bug eating'. Josh Earnest acts like his own boss never did that himself.

With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chili peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share. That’s how things were, one long adventure, the bounty of a young boy’s life. - B.Obama

If you think these guys actually drink urine, you’re kidding yourselves.
These “reality shows” are staffed with caterers and all sorts of support people. There’s plenty of food, water, and amenities. It’s all real but fake.

"Obama is cerebral and stolidly even-keeled...."

What planet does this writer live on? Obama is an unstable dope.

He’s a fake just like Obama. In the making of his TV show, he was known to spend the night in the comfort of a hotel instead if the wild like his show makes it appear.

This is all about a pagan Mother Nature religion that the progressives want to foist in us—and will get Pope Francis to help.

Survivor man does not drink urine and he does not have a caterer.
