Former President Bill Clinton kept President Obama waiting on the tarmac Friday morning while Air Force One was trying to take off from Israel.

Clinton and Obama both attended and spoke at the funeral of former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres, who died this week at age 93.

Sky News posted a video of Obama attempting to get Clinton to board Air Force One so they could take off.

The video shows Obama desperately pleading with Clinton to get on the plane. Clinton was reportedly talking to Secretary of State John Kerry when Obama came out to get him on the plane.

In the video, Obama can be heard shouting out "Bill!" and "Let’s go, I’ll take you home!" while waiting for the former president to finish up his conversation. Obama in the video is seen impatiently waiting for Clinton in the doorway of Air Force One.

Clinton has been known to make news on tarmacs. The former president faced criticism in June over a private meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch while their planes were on the same tarmac. At the time, Lynch’s Justice Department was in the middle of an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server while she served as secretary of state.
