Only one woman should know President Barack Obama’s fantasies, but in a new interview from the White House, the Head-of-State let the world in on one.
“Sometimes I have this fantasy that I can put on a disguise, wear a fake mustache and I can wander through Tel Aviv and go to a bar and have a conversation,” he told Israeli Channel 2.
The strange daydream comes a week before his trip to Israel and his inability to be a tourist and have “spontaneous interactions.”
“I’d love to sit at a cafe and just hang out,” he said.
While Obama longs to be a regular Joe, this wouldn’t be his first trip to the country. “The last time I was there as a senator, I still had the option of wandering through the Old City of Jerusalem,” he recalled. “That option becomes much trickier once you’re actually president.”
Still, tight security won’t keep the President from finding any opportunity to have organic interactions with the Israeli people. “You’ve tapped into something that chafes at me.” [VN]
