Barack Obama is such an egomaniac that he has always seen himself as royalty. That’s why he was undoubtedly humiliated this past week when Queen Elizabeth put him in his place in front of the entire world.
Fox News reported that the Queen just openly mocked Obama during an interview with Sir. Richard Attenborough, making it clear that she never had a high opinion of the former president at all.
The Queen was talking to Attenborough in the gardens of Buckingham Palace when a noisy helicopter interrupted them from above.
“Why do they always go round and round when you want to talk?” Queen Elizabeth said, clearly annoyed. “Sounds like President Trump … or President Obama.”
The Queen met with Obama a few times during his presidency, and it seems she was not impressed.
This was a particular slap in the face to Obama this week, as he has just learned that he will not be invited to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle next month. As close personal friends of the royal couple, Barack and Michelle Obama likely assumed they would score an invite to the wedding of the year. However, they were left off the invitation list this week.
“It has been decided that an official list of political leaders – both UK and international – is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding,” Harry’s spokesman said. “Her Majesty’s government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by the royal household.”
Sources had previously said that Meghan and Harry had insisted on inviting the Obamas, but the government had warned them that this move could sour diplomatic relations with the U.S., as Trump would be offended that he was not invited. Clearly, the British government won this argument, resulting in Harry and Meghan having to snub the Obamas as well.
