How Many Times Can Obama Mention Himself in a 90-Minute Speech?

Speaking on Saturday in Germany, former president Barack Obama mentioned himself almost 400 times in his 90-minute speech.

Obama referenced himself 392 times in 90 minutes, which averages out to roughly 4.4 times a minute, or referring to himself roughly once every fifteen seconds.

Tom Elliott from Grabien made a breakdown of Barack Obama’s self-mentions and his use of various references to himself:

“I” — 274

“Me” — 25

“My” — 31

“I’d” — 9

“I’m” — 41

“Myself” — 7

“Obama” — 5

Steve Hilton, who served as British Prime Minister David Cameron’s director of strategy, said Cameron said Barack 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. Obama never listened to anyone, always thought he was smarter than every expert in the room and treated every meeting as an opportunity to lecture everyone else.”

Charles Krauthammer, who was also a psychiatrist, wrote, “So I decided when I left psychiatry never to use my authority. But let me just say as a layman, without invoking any expertise, Obama is clearly a narcissist in the non-scientific use of the word. He is so self-involved, you see it from his rise … I think he’s extremely self-involved. He sees himself in very world historical terms, which means A) because he’s an amateur, he doesn’t know very much, and B) because he’s a narcissist, he doesn’t listen.”
