President Obama is a man who doesn’t like to share the spotlight with anyone, as his ginormous ego requires the praise of large crowds to sustain itself.
This attitude was on full display at a rally where Obama was speaking to drum up some support for his chosen successor Hillary Clinton. When he lost command of the crowd, the president lost his cool.
Apparently a Trump supporter in attendance attempted to heckle the president, and suddenly all of the attention shifted from the all-important Obama to the man daring to stand for his candidate of choice.
Surprisingly, during his narcissistic rant, he did sort of defend the gentleman, but again, that’s only likely because he just wanted the crowd to focus on “his royal highness.”
The American Mirror reports, The president was criticizing Donald Trump when the crowd turned against an “elderly” Trump supporter.
“Hold up, hold up,” he said as the crowd booed.
Between smiles and stern looks, Obama finally snapped at his audience.
“Hey everybody, everybody, hey!” he yelled, growing increasingly impatient.
“Listen up! Hey! I told you to be focused and you’re not focused right now!” he shouted, pointing at the crowd.
“Listen to what I’m saying! Hold up!” he continued as the audience ignored him and continued chanting.
“Hold up!” he said several more times as the crowd continued to focus on the protester.
“Everybody sit down and be quiet. Everybody sit down and be quiet for a second. Now listen up! I’m serious, listen up!”
Obama went on to say the “older gentleman” was supporting his candidate and “he’s not doing nothing.”
But the crowd continued to boo and heckle the protester.
“This is what I mean about folks not being focused,” Obama said.
After telling the crowd to “not boo, vote,” the professor continued to lecture his audience. “Now, I want you to pay attention because if we lose focus, we could have problems.”
You can literally feel the ego dripping off this guy, can’t you? Along with a rather obnoxious dose of you-must-obey-me attitude that would seem more natural coming from a parent than the leader of the (supposedly) free world.
While it certainly takes a person who is a bit full of themselves to run for president and actually believe he or she is worthy of the honor and responsibility it takes to run a country, Obama takes healthy self-esteem to unhealthy levels.
Just about any time there’s an important date in history, particularly when it involves a figure of historical significance, the president marks the occasion by posting a picture of — himself. Here’s a good example:
Today is the 57th Anniversary of the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. Pic: President Obama on Rosa Parks bus pic.twitter.com/cFaKOYDt

Rather than posting a picture of Rosa Parks to honor her for her boldness in standing for civil rights, it’s a picture of him. On a bus.
Perhaps today’s latest episode of him losing his cool suggests an inner sort of panic the president feels realizing that very soon — maybe even already — he will no longer be the center of attention.
