Obama in a fake mustache? He wishes. Barack Obama shared a "celebrity problem" in a recent interview. On March 14, ABC News reported that Obama said that he'd love to know what it's like to be a commoner... just to be a regular Joe visiting a foreign land. This statement comes ahead of the President's trip to Isreal, scheduled for next week.
"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. I’d love to sit at a cafe and just hang out," Obama said.
The Obama fake mustache idea is something that is intriguing to many people, especially those who are recognizable and can't be a "no one" in this world. When the president makes a statement like this, however, it comes with a-whole-lotta backlash. What do you make of Obama's fantasy?
"The last time I was there as a senator, I still had the option of wandering through the Old City of Jerusalem. That option becomes much trickier once you’re actually president. You can’t just slip out and interact with people without having a bunch of guys with machine guns with you," Obama added.
Is Obama's fake mustache statement something that is sincere?
