All the president’s ego: conservatives mock Obama’s insertion of his name into other presidential bios
After the Heritage Foundation’s Rory Cooper noted that President Obama inserted his name into Ronald Reagan’s official White House biography, Commentary‘s Seth Mandel dug up some other examples. A lot of other examples.
Obama has added bullet points bragging about his own accomplishments to the biographical sketches of every single U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge (except, for some reason, Gerald Ford).
Hail to the Narcissist in Chief!
