Former President Barack Obama has a gift for making everything about him.
From giving speeches where he references himself hundreds of times to selfie photoshoots to being personally insulted by the 2016 election, many argue Obama behaves as if the world revolves around him.
Back in April, Obama referred to himself a record-breaking number of time.
Washington Examiner reported that former President Barack Obama’s recent talk in Berlin Saturday was touted as focusing on “community leadership and civic engagement.” But his speech seemed to focus mainly on another topic: himself.
“You know, I was — I was a pretty busy guy. I’ve got to say. But I worked out every morning. I mean, I was pretty religious about it. I was in the gym,” were just a handful of the 392 references to himself by Obama in the speech according to Grabien News.

A new book out, written by New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker, reveals that Obama took the 2016 loss personally, and blamed the American people.
Former President Barack Obama was unhappy with Hillary Clinton and her failed “soulless campaign” in 2016, saying he saw her loss as a “personal insult.”
The new details come from a recently released update to New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker’s book Obama: The Call of History.
The new edition, which includes Obama’s reaction to the 2016 election, said Obama compared himself to Michael Corleone, the titular character of “The Godfather.” Obama thought he “almost got out” of office untouched, like a mob boss avoiding a hit job.
Obama found himself shocked by the election results, thinking before Nov. 8 there was “no way Americans would turn on him” and “[h]is legacy, he felt, was in safe hands.”
The book details that Obama could not believe Americans had “decided to replace him with a buffoonish showman whose calling cards had been repeated bankruptcies, serial marriages and racist dog whistles.”
Obama allegedly told his speechwriter Ben Rhodes after meeting Donald Trump that the future president “peddles in bullshit.”
Rhodes responded, saying he thought Trump was a character right out of the book “Huckleberry Finn.”
“Maybe that’s the best we can hope for,” Obama said.
