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.

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.

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 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 Afghanistan, as well as how to bring the U.S. debt down to soften the currently economic climate. To wit:

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.
