Obama Paid Millions To Talk About Himself

Former President Obama is cashing in on his celebrity status.

Now that he’s no longer in the White House, Obama is scheduled to rake in millions of dollars from speaking appearances.

On Monday, Obama jetted off to Milan for a two-day trip to give a speech on climate change and was reportedly paid $3 million.

Climate change wasn’t the only subject matter.

According to The American Mirror, Obama talked about himself quite a bit:

During his roughly 100-minute remarks in Milan, Italy, the former U.S. president talked about himself 216 times, according to a count by The American Mirror.

Obama said “I” 168 times, “me” or “my” 40 times, and said “we,” “us” or “our” referring to his family 8 times.

The American Mirror also calculated Obama’s speech time equates to $30,000 per minute.

Doing more math each mention of himself averages out to be $14,000.
