Speaking on Saturday in Germany, former president Barack Obama may have set a new record for narcissism, reportedly mentioning himself almost 400 times in a 90 minute speech. Obama’s reported 392 references in 90 minutes would average out to roughly 4.4 times a minute, or referring to himself roughly once every fifteen seconds.

As The Telegraph reported in January 2018, Steve Hilton, who served as British Prime Minister David Cameron’s director of strategy, said Cameron felt Obama was one of the “most narcissistic, self-absorbed people” he had ever worked with. He said, “As for Obama, all I can tell you is my old boss, former British prime minister David Cameron, thought Obama was one of the most narcissistic, self-absorbed people he’d ever dealt with.
