The textbook definition of a narcissist is someone who can make anything all about them. And while America had little doubt President Barack Obama was a narcissist, the preener in chief managed to prove it yet again on Memorial Day.
In Obama’s weekly radio address, he said that the troops had a particular reason to be thankful this year: namely, him.
“Hi, everybody. This weekend is Memorial Day — a time to pay tribute to all our men and women in uniform who’ve ever given their lives so that we can live in freedom and security,” Obama began. “This year, the holiday is especially meaningful. It’s the first Memorial Day since our war ended in Afghanistan.”
