Some parties vacation in Hawaii to sip Mai Tais on the beach and indulge in well-deserved R& R. But not President Barack Obama.
When he visits the Aloha State, he puts in work.
On Tuesday, after his early morning gym hearing, Obama, his family and a few friends took on the Koko Head Crater Stairs — a popular Hawaii hike that is so grueling, people often refer to it as the “Stairmaster from Hell” or the “Koko Head Stairs of Doom.”
Unsuspecting hikers had to move to the side of the trail’s narrow course as a sweaty Obama and his security suite barreled up the trail’s 1, 048 wooden gradations, which clambers a steep 1,208 hoofs up the crater’s ridge.
But the hikers didn’t appears to mind the delay.
One walker even took advantage of the situation and offered POTUS some admonition for the end of his term.
“Thanks for your service, Mr. President, ” the man says in a video posted to the My Kailua Facebook page.
“Legalize it on your way out! ” he contributes as Obama stroll away.
Most hikers, however, retained their legislative suggestions to themselves and just tried to squeeze in their presidential selfies as casually as possible.
After the hike, the Obamas spent the rest of the day at their luxury Kailua rental, probably for some well-deserved relaxation.
Below, realize Obama and his mob climb up the staircase of doom 😛 TAGEND
