Former President Barack Obama marked the passing of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain by posting a picture of himself with Bourdain.

A few hours later, because one picture of Obama and Bourdain together wasn’t enough, he did it again.

This is par for the course with the former president. As National Review columnist Dan McLaughlin noted, when someone famous dies Obama either posts a picture of himself with the person, or a picture of himself without the person.

Bourdain, 61, committed suicide in a French hotel room where he was staying to film an episode of his “Parts Unknown” series. He reportedly suffered from depression.
