President Obama is officially the #YOLO president.
Ahead of his scheduled three-day trip to Alaska to see the effects of climate change, Obama announced that Mount McKinley, America's highest point, will now officially be known as Denali.
The mountain was originally known
as Denali by Alaskan natives before it was renamed to honor President William McKinley in 1917. But many Alaskans have continued to call it by its original name, and the state has been petitioning the federal government to change the name since 1975.
Some Ohioans think this is a Miserable
idea, since McKinley hails from the state.
But this isn't even the craziest part of Obama's trip. NBC has announced that the president will film an episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls.
Obama will learn survival skills
and talk about environment issues with Bear Grylls, the survivalist who has recently filmed with stars Kate Winslet and Michelle Rodriguez.
No word yet if Bear plans on drinking Obama's presidential urine.
