On Sunday, while in Florida on his bus tour, President Barack Obama made an unannounced stop at the Big Apple Pizza and Pasta in Ft. Pierce and was lifted up by the pizza-man. The pizza-man is Scott Van Duzer, owner of the Big Apple Pizza and Pasta Italian restaurant.
Scott Van Duzer is 46-year-old, 1.9 metre tall (6ft 3in) and weighs 260 pounds.
When Obama entered the shop, he said, “Scott, let me tell you, you are like the biggest pizza shop owner I’ve ever seen,” according to a White House pool report.
After Obama was lifted up, he said “Look at that!” Man are you a powerlifter or what?” He continued, according to the pool, talking about Van Duzer’s big muscles. “Everybody look at these guns,” he said. “If I eat your pizza will I look like that?”
