President Obama Goes Running Wild with Bear Grylls, Dines on a Salmon Carcass

Just how many secret service agents do you think were hiding behind the camera?

President Obama continued his awesome pop culture icon tour by venturing out into the Alaskan wilderness with Bear Grylls for Running Wild with Bear Grylls. Take a gander at this clip of him and Grylls chowing down on some salmon left behind by a bear, and wonder with us about the logistics of having the President of the gosh darn United States go out into the wilderness for a television show.

Just how many secret service agents do you think were hiding behind the camera, there? And just why are they calling it a “salmon carcass”? Wouldn’t it just be a salmon? What exactly makes it a carcass versus, say, any other time you’d eat salmon? The mind, she boggles.
