Former President Barack Obama attended an event Monday night, where he brought up what seemed to be the difficult subject of dropping his daughter off at school. After giving one of his most narcissistic replies ever, he shared his hysterical meltdown over Malia that occurred while the Secret Service “pretended” not to see.
Obama’s distress isn’t the result of checking his daughter into a private suite while the rest of the common folk slum it in 6-person dorms. While the former president attended an event for the Beau Biden Foundation, which honors former Vice President Joe Biden’s late son Beau who died of brain cancer, he had to use the opportunity to do what he does best — talk about himself.
The Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children was established by former Vice President Joe Biden in 2015 in honor of his late son’s legacy of caring for society’s most vulnerable children who had fallen victim to abuse. Of course, it would not be an Obama appearance without making it all about him and not about the cause.
Obama took only a few minutes to address Beau and the actual cause for the event, according to WDEL, just briefly touching on the purpose of the gathering before he jumped right into talking about himself. While giving his speech, he brought up dropping off his daughter Malia at Harvard for her freshman year. We aren’t sure what that has to do with the foundation either. Being a bit dramatic, Obama said it was a tough moment for him before comparing it to “open-heart surgery.” I’m sure people who have actually had open-heart surgery would beg to differ.
“For those of us who have daughters, it just happens fast. I dropped off Malia at college, and I was saying to Joe and Jill [Biden] that it was a little bit like open-heart surgery,” Obama said. “I was proud that I did not cry in front of her. But on the way back, the Secret Service was off, looking straight ahead, pretending they weren’t hearing me as I sniffled and blew my nose. It was rough,” he added, according to MSN News. “It is a reminder that, at the end of our lives, whatever else we’ve accomplished, the things that we’ll remember are the joys that our children – and hopefully way later, our grandchildren – bring us.”
It certainly sounds like he not only made the fundraiser about him but he made his daughter’s milestone about him too. Way to go, Obama. Above all, we think the most selfish, narcissistic thing he did all night was complain about his “hard” memories with his daughter while Joe Biden tries to remember his late son.
At least Obama has the luxury of dropping his daughter off at school, making memories with her, and looking forward to grandchildren — while Biden wishes he could share even one more memory with his son. We’re sure Biden would love to do these things with his son, while Obama sits back and complains. Talk about poor optics.
We’ve always known Obama to be a narcissist, but this is an all-time low. Not only did he turn a charity function into a pity party for himself, but he also complained about his first-class problems as a parent to the wrong crowd.
