Delusional: Michelle Obama Says People Across the World Feel Barack Is ‘Their President


Delusional: Michelle Obama Says People Across
the World Feel Barack Is ‘Their President Barack Obama isn’t the president of the
United States anymore — much to the chagrin of liberals everywhere, I’m sure. However,
during an appearance last week, his wife said that there are plenty of people around the
world who wish he was “their president.” The remark came during the Obama Foundation
Summit at the Illinois Institute of Technology on Tuesday when former first lady Michelle
Obama said the 44th president’s library could have been built anywhere across the
globe. It’s being built in Jackson Park in Chicago, mind you, but it could have been
anywhere. “There’s power in the selection of Jackson
Park,” Michelle said. Barack and I don’t do things incidentally,”
she said. “There’s a strategy. “Barack’s presidential library could have
been anywhere in the world because there are so many people who feel like he is their president
all over the world. New York wanted it,” she said. “Hawaii
wants it. Because it’s also an economic engine, right. Because it will be a visited
presidential library.” I know President Donald Trump gets a lot of
flak for allegedly being a narcissist, but at what point has he ever suggested his presidential
library, when he’s done, could be anywhere in the world because people around the globe
love him so much? I can see it now: “I could build my library
anywhere. It would be so great for the world. So great.” Cue the Russia jokes, cue the
ginned-up outrage, cue all of that. Michelle Obama says her husband could build
his library anywhere in the world because “there are so many people who feel like
he is their president all over the world”? Eh, we’ll let it slide. This got almost
zero play in the media. It did get some reactions on Twitter, however:
Of course, since Barack Obama made his remarks about cancel culture, maybe he’s not going
to be as universally beloved. Well, whatever. I’m never surprised at the
subtle narcissism of the Obamas, nor am I shocked when it gets ignored or even cosigned
by the media. That being said, we shouldn’t pretend it’s
a good thing that the former first lady is saying there are people around the world who
want Barack Obama to be their president. The only place that ought to count is the United
States. On Nov. 8, 2016, the people of the United
States took a vote on whether they wanted to continue down the path we’d been on for
eight years under Obama or whether we wanted a change.
We all know how that vote went. That’s the important part. The rest is just noise — and
in this case, very delusional noise.
