Barack Obama is a tough critic when it comes to food, apparently: In a clip from his upcoming appearance on Running Wild with Bear Grylls, the president calls Grylls a “mediocre cook” after noshing on some salmon the host grilled up.
It didn’t help that Grylls presented the salmon to Obama by telling him it was half-eaten by a bear who only wanted to eat the fatty parts. “The fact that he told me that this was a leftover fish from a bear, I don’t know if that was necessary,” Obama deadpans. “He could have just left that out.”
Watch the clip below, and see more of Obama and Grylls’ Alaska adventure when the episode airs on NBC later this year.
