After the funeral of former Israeli President Shimon Peres, former President Bill Clinton hitched a ride back from Israel today on Air Force One with President Obama.

Clinton has a reputation for running a bit late and it seems Obama was no deterrent. Video shows Obama standing in the doorway of the plane, motioning Clinton to hurry along and board the plane.

With no success, Obama walks off the plane onto the steps and calls out to the former president: “Bill, let’s go! I gotta get home.”

Finally, Clinton walks up the steps to board the plane. The two presidents shake hands, pat each other on the back and board together.

Both presidents were speakers at Peres’ funeral earlier today. They were expected to land back in Washington close to 6 p.m. ET.
