Obama Refers To Himself 216 Times During $3 MILLION Italy Speech

Obama Refers To Himself 216 Times During $3 MILLION Italy Speech

If the organizers of the Global Food Innovation Summit paid Barack Obama a reported $3,000,000 to talk about himself, then they definitely got their money’s worth.

During his roughly 100-minute remarks in Milan, Italy, the former U.S. president talked about himself 216 times, according to a count by The American Mirror.

Obama said “I” 168 times, “me” or “my” 40 times, and said “we,” “us” or “our” referring to his family 8 times.

“I have joked before that although I don’t have the good fortune of having Italian ancestry, I do have a name that ends in a vowel,” Obama said towards the beginning of his remarks.

After speaking for about 10 minutes, Obama moved to a conversation with his former chef Sam Kass.

When asked how life is after the White House, Obama continued to focus on himself.

“It is true that I’m not living in the White House anymore,” Obama said. “I am actually enjoying being in my own house. I have been fighting Michelle to get more closet space.

“I have been trying to figure out how the coffee maker works,” he added.

Obama said he is working to build “an effective network of global activists.”

“You notice I have a lot of grey hair now,” Obama said. “People always ask me, ‘Oh, Mr. President, we need you and we want you involved.’

“And I’m happy to get involved, but the greatest thing I think I can give is to make sure that somebody who is 20 years old, 21, 25, who are ready to make their mark on the world that I can help them so that they can take it to the next level.”

Obama was asked how he changed in office and he remarked, “I think the people who know me best would say that I have not changed much.

“One of the dangers of being in the public eye, being in the spotlight, being in positions of power is how it will change your soul.”

He added, “That you start believing your own hype. You start believing that you deserve all the attention. I actually found that I became more humble the longer I was in office.”

The UK Express reports Obama was paid $3 million for his appearance.

That equates to $30,000 per minute. source
