Former President Bill Clinton tried the patience of President Barack Obama on Friday as he held up their departure from Israel.

The current and former American presidents flew into Tel Aviv early Friday morning to attend the funeral of former Israeli President Shimon Peres.

After the funeral, the presidents were scheduled to get right back on Air Force One to jet back to Washington, DC, for a dinnertime arrival.

President Obama boarded the plane first and grew exasperated as Clinton pushed back their take-off by dawdling on the tarmac, according to a report by Daily Mail.\

Video shows an exasperated Obama, standing in the entryway of Air Force One, clapping Clinton on and motioning for him to come inside the plane.

‘Bill! Let’s go!’ the president is heard yelling, before walking out of view.

Clinton ignored Obama twice.

Obama eventually grew so impatient that he walked out onto the stairs, motioned at Clinton to come in and yelled ‘Bill! Let’s go, I’ll take you home’.

It was only then – after hollering at the former president for a third time – that Clinton walked up the stairs at last.

The Daily Mail quoting Obama’s official schedule, said Obama was estimated to get back to Washington, DC around 7:30pm on Friday to have dinner with his family, a routine he has kept since he became president more than 7 years ago.
