Caveat: This is satire. We repeat: This is satire. We have chosen to run it because it is really funny, and the reason it is really funny is that it’s so utterly believable. It sounds exactly like something the narcissist-in-chief would do.

But it is satire. We just wanted to clear that up before receiving a bajillion emails informing us that the story isn’t true. We know that. We are publishing it for its entertainment value only.

Via Empire News: 

President Obama has ordered a $200,000, life-sized, bronze statue of himself, with plans to install it in the entryway of the White House. The president says that his legacy “should not be diminished,” and that this is the only way he can “keep an eye” over Trump, as well as future presidents.

“I have been president for only eight years, and in that time, I have done what no other presidents could do in all their time in total,” said Obama. “I have created a legacy that should not be diminished. I have created something that no future president will be able to do. In that regard, I have commissioned this statute, with plans to have it permanently erected in the entryway of the White House, so that all who enter can remember me fondly.”

Obama’s real-life acts of self-lionization are nearly as funny. Who could forget his tribute to Neil Armstrong on the occasional of the astronaut’s passing?

 Or his memorial to blues legend B.B. King?

Or his memorials to any of the prominent personages who have died during his administration, which have to a person included a self-reverential photo of himself?
