Obama hasn’t changed much over the years. He is still incredibly impressed with himself. During a recent 90 minute speech in Berlin, he mentioned himself nearly 400 times.
The Daily Wire reports:
Report: Obama Sets New Record In Narcissism: Mentions Himself Almost 400 Times in 90-Minute Speech
Speaking on Saturday in Germany, former president Barack Obama may have set a new record for narcissism, reportedly mentioning himself almost 400 times in a 90 minute speech. Obama’s reported 392 references in 90 minutes would average out to roughly 4.4 times a minute, or referring to himself roughly once every fifteen seconds.
As noted by Tom Elliott at Grabien, here is the breakdown of Obama’s self-absorption and his use of various references to himself:
“I” — 274
“Me” — 25
“My” — 31
“I’d” — 9
“I’m” — 41
“Myself” — 7
It’s true. Watch the video below:
This is nothing new for Obama. He loves to talk about himself.
FOX News reported in January of 2018:
Ego much? Obama talked about himself nearly four times as often as Trump in first SOTU speech
President Trump talked long on Tuesday night, “the third-longest State of the Union in the past 50 years, according to The New York Times. But he rarely talked about himself — unlike his predecessor.
President Obama’s first State of the Union speech in 2010 featured the president saying some version of “I” or “me” nearly 100 times. That was nearly four times more than Trump managed — 98 personal references to a mere 26.
For all the media have attacked Trump about his ego, it was Obama who earned regular criticism for being self-referential in his speeches. His first 41 speeches showed this tendency was off the charts — mentioning himself nearly 1,200 times – 1,198 to be exact.
Obama’s 2010 speech was littered with “I” or a contraction in some form or another — 88 times, with another 10 “me.” Here’s a typical example: “But when I ran for president, I promised I wouldn’t just do what was popular, I would do what was necessary.” That’s four in one sentence. Trump mustered two in one sentence just once. Obama managed several sentences with multiple “I” comments.
The only people who love Obama more than Obama are the people who make up our media.
