WATCH: Yo, Bill, Let’s Go!

Air Force One is the last plane in the world that you’d expect to have a tarmac delay, right?

Welcome to every other traveler’s real world, President Obama.

POTUS got a taste of everyday travel on Friday – or, at least, the way it used to be for him before becoming the leader of the free world – when he attended the funeral of former Israeli President Shimon Peres in Tel Aviv.

After delivering a eulogy and attending the services, Obama was ready to jet back to the U.S. But he was traveling with former President Bill Clinton, notorious for his lack of punctuality. That, combined with Clinton’s natural tendency to schmooze, led to a funny encounter when Obama – already on Air Force One – learned that the holdup in taking off was Clinton, who was still on the tarmac at David Ben Gurion Airport talking to officials.

Standing in the doorway of the plane, Obama can be seen waving to Clinton, "Bill, let's go! … Bill! Let's go! … Bill! Let's go. Let's go home."

Clinton finally bounds up the steps to Air Force One.

Here’s the funny video:
