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. …
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. …
“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.’”
