[Ed. – Were you wee-wee’d up about this? I figure POTUS had his usual escort. What, everyone else has to be cleared from a gym so he can pump a little iron?]
The Secret Service insists Obama’s security wasn’t jeopardized in Poland when a gawking gym-goer snapped the President pumping iron on Wednesday at the Warsaw Marriott Hotel.
Footage shows POTUS, in a black tracksuit with headphones in his ears, doing a series of weight lifting exercises — including lunges, side raises, step-ups and shoulder presses. …
The short clip of the presidential fitness session was first leaked to Fakt, a Polish tabloid, and then quickly made the rounds online.
Onlookers told the tabloid Obama didn’t hold back during his 45 minute workout, as he “heavily sighed and groaned” doing the exercises that were listed on a piece of paper he carried around during his routine. …
A number of other people are spotted in the footage, which prompted some to wonder if the security situation was safe during his stay at the Warsaw hotel.
“Hotel guests were not asked to leave the gym during this off-the-record movement, nor were they asked to refrain from taking pictures,” Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said in a statement.
