President Obama has often lamented how restrictive the so-called presidential bubble can be.
But in an interview with Israel's Channel 2 that aired on Thursday, Obama took it a step further, talking about how he has a fantasy of putting on a disguise -- complete with a faux mustache -- so he can converse with Israelis.
Sometimes I have this fantasy that I can put on a disguise, you know, wear a fake mustache, and I can wander through Tel Aviv and go to a bar and have a conversation, or go down to a university and meet with some students in a setting where it wasn't as formal, Obama said in the interview. And we're going to try and find as many opportunities as I can to interact directly with the Israeli people.
The answer came after Obama who hasn't been to Israel since before he was elected president was asked if there was anything he'd like to do on his visit next week to Israel.
A dip in the Dead Sea, he was asked. A visit to a falafel kiosk, perhaps?
All of the above, Obama said. You know, I'd love to sit at a cafe and just hang out. The last time I was there as a senator, I still had the option of wandering through the Old City in Jerusalem. That option, I think, becomes a lot trickier once you're actually president.
Obama, who leaves to the Middle East on Tuesday, said he would like to talk to Israelis to learn how they're feeling, what they're thinking about the world, about life.
In the interview, Obama summed up his relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, explaining that he's met with him more than any other world leader.
He does not need a “fake” mustache.
He is already 100% FAKE.
He could wear a muscle suit and come as a straight guy.
Can’t he get some of Wookie’s mustache?
Right, he should dress as a jew and try to visit the
Al Aqsa mosque or even just visit Gaza.
The guy is an idiot, clueless.
He can’t grow his own mustache.
Oh, please do it. I want to see him do this.
He’s already wearing her beard.
> A dip in the Dead Sea, he was asked.
The above can be easily misunderstood.
Just imagine a republican saying something like this.
He’s trying to show up the Pope (because he left his security behind and went into Rome). That is EXACTLY why this was said. Wants to appear as a ‘man of the peeps’.
What a pathetic POS.
what’s he need a mustache for?
he has a full beard we call moochelle
Exactly...The enemedia would slice and dice a Republican president saying this.
i would like it if he....oh never mind!
Let me guess, a small mustache, just the width of the nose.
You know...I wish he could go in disguise and ask regular joe Israel people what they think about the American President...
Betcha he would get an earful...mostly.... He is a pompous ass ....
He’s nothing BUT a FAKE!!! I’m SURE the Israelis will LOVE him!! NOT if they know him.
