WTTG’s Wisdom Martin Interviews President Obama Look Alike on National Mall

By Merrill Knox Comment

While reporting on President Obama’s second inauguration from the National Mall, WTTG reporter Wisdom Martin came across a professional Presidential look-alike.

“I’m from Channel 5 here in DC, and you look just like Barack Obama,” Martin told the man, who was swamped with people attempting to take a picture with him. “What do you mean? I’m Barack Obama,” the look-alike, Louis Ortiz, responded.

Ortiz called his life since Obama was elected “a roller-coaster ride,” telling Martin, “Not too many downs. Many ups. South Korea, Japan, Australia, corporate events, IBM, the Dalai Lama, Steve Forbes. It’s just nonstop.”
