Six Times Obama Commemorated Deaths With A Picture Of Himself
Legendary golfer Arnold Palmer died on Sept. 25, and President Barack Obama immediately rushed to social to remember Palmer … with pictures of himself.
President Barack Obama has a habit of commemorating deaths of important figures and Americans by posting a picture of himself on Twitter. Here are six examples of the president doing just that.
