MONTAGE: Obama Refers to Himself 467 Times During Berlin Speech

Former President Barack H. Obama spoke at a town hall event in Berlin, Germany, Saturday where he spent most of his 90 minutes talking about himself.

The speech, supposedly about “community leadership and civic engagement,” turned out to be an autobiographical rundown of the life and times of Barack Obama. Some things never change. He referred to himself a jaw-dropping 467 times during the speech.

The fine folks at Grabien broke down the number of “I’s,” “Me’s,” and “My’s,” and came up with the following final tally:

“I” — 312

“Me” — 33

“My” — 43

“I’d” — 9

“I’m” — 61

“Myself” — 9

Obama was promoting his own Obama Foundation, whose broad mission is “to inspire, empower, and connect people to change their world.”

He gave the audience an not-so-brief update on life since leaving the presidency.

“When I left office, or maybe a few months before I left office, I had to make some decisions about what I would do after the end of my presidency and I knew that I wanted to catch up on my sleep — I had to take Michelle on vacation,” he said.

He also discussed some of his projects while in office, like the Paris Climate Accord, which President Donald J. Trump ripped to shreds, crushing Obama’s legacy like an annoying gnat.

He also spoke extensively about his workout routine while he was president.
