President Obama has ordered a $200,000, life-sized, bronze statue of himself, with plans to install it in the entryway of the White House.
The president says that his legacy “should not be reduced,” and that this is the only way he can “keep an eye” over Trump, as well as future presidents.
According to Snopes, reports that the statue would be installed in the White House originated on Empire News, a website known for publishing fake news.
The article claimed Obama had ordered the $200,000 statue of himself so that he could “keep an eye on” Trump and future presidents. It quoted:
“I have been president for only eight years, and in that time, I have done what no other presidents could do in all their time in total,” said Obama. “I have created a legacy that should not be diminished. I have created something that no future president will be able to do. In that regard, I have commissioned this statute, with plans to have it permanently erected in the entryway of the White House, so that all who enter can remember me fondly.”
Don’t you think Obama would say this? please comment your feedback?
