I, Obamassus

Many Americans thought Obama was a secret Muslim.

They were wrong.

He worships himself.

Obama was the first president to use a selfie stick.

He has a big grin filled with large white teeth, close cropped hair. He stays slim and trim.

He walks like a ballet dancer.

He would grab the microphone when famous musical groups performed at the White House.

He put his feet up on the White House desk.

It was his desk now, wasn’t it?

He gave a speech the other day in which he referred to himself …(gasp) 467 times.

He will forever be remember as telling his Berlin audience ““There’s only one of me!”

For a man who did all he could to diminish the West and its contribution to Modern Civilization he is most attracted to the Greek god, Narcissus.

It could be worse.

He could be enamored of Echo.
