Apparently, Barack Obama loves his star status and is quite used to it. At a recent fundraiser in New York featuring NBA legends, Obama lamented the fact that he's just not as interesting among this crowd as he usually is.
This evening (August 22) at the president's "NBA heroes" fundraiser in New York City, featuring Michael Jordan and Carmelo Anthony, Barack Obama was star struck.
"It is very rare I come to an event where I'm like the fifth or sixth most interesting person," President Obama said, according to the pool report. "Usually the folks want to take a picture with me, sit next to me, talk to me. That has not been the case at this event and I completely understand."
Is this guy for real? Just how arrogant is Barack Obama? Does the meter go that high?
