President Obama has had a very strange relationship with salmon this past week.

During a scheduled trip to Alaska to see the effects of climate change firsthand, Obama appeared on a taping of Running Wild With Bear Grylls. While many people hoped the duo would end up drinking each other's urine, they opted for something a bit more mundane—a leftover salmon carcass that an actual bear had left on the side of a river.

This wasn't the first run in with salmon Obama had during his Alaskan adventure. Just days before this, a salmon spawned (if ya know what we mean) on the President.

President Obama and Bear Grylls are basically besties now, and they've got the selfie to prove it.

As part of Obama's three-day trip to Alaska to study the impact of climate change on the region, he is spending time with survivalist Bear Grylls and exploring the wild.

Ahead of Obama's trip, he finalized a name change of Mount McKinley. It is known officially known as Denali, the original name given to the highest point in North America by Alaskan natives.

Since starting his Alaskan adventure, the White House Instagram has been posting other pictures of Obama in the wilderness.

The President joins celebs like Kate Winslet, Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez appearing on Running Wild With Bear Grylls.

President Barack Obama visited Gator's Dockside, an Orlando sports bar, Saturday night as part of a bus tour of Florida. One young boy in the crowded restaurant, Andre Wupperman, hails from Hawaii, which led Obama to flash him a shaka hand sign -- the Hawaiian "hello".

Wupperman responded in kind, to which Obama playfully replied: "You were born in Hawaii? You have a birth certificate?"

We'll just assume Obama didn't make young Andre produce documentation.

Betty White got a nice little tribute from President Obama for her 90th birthday, so it's no surprise that she's publicly endorsing him, though it's hard to think that America's Sweetheart (other than Justin Bieber) would give her vote to a guy whose name is the same as a baseball glove. Hopefully, this isn't just some well-orchestrated joke for her prank show.

On his weekly address today, President Obama outlined some of his plans with a continued effort in Afghanistan, as well as how to bring the U.S. debt down to soften the currently economic climate. To wit:

Because of their bravery and dedication, the tide of war has turned in Afghanistan. The goal that I set - to defeat al Qaeda, and deny it a chance to rebuild - is within reach.

When addressing domestic plans, Obama said:

I've called on Congress to take the money we're no longer spending at war, use half of it to pay down our debt, and use the other half to rebuild America.

With summer on the horizon, the president's reelection bid will go into hyperdrive, with a rally today and stops in Seattle and Los Angeles.

The real genius behind the annual White House Correspondents Dinner is the fact that it has been President Obama's chance at doing a somewhat well-written, if not slightly rough, open mic stand up routine. Like in past years, Obama doesn't really pull any punches and makes a nice reference to Hilary Clinton's celebrity meme status.
