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

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.”
