Valerie Jarrett was at Muhammad Ali’s funeral today, where she read a tribute “penned by President Obama.” Can you guess who managed to make his way into that tribute?

He just can’t turn it off for one damn second.
Transcript via Grabien:
“He had everything stripped from him, his titles, his standing, his money, his passion. Very nearly his freedom. But Ali still chose America. I imagine he knew that only here in this country could he win it all back. So he chose to help perfect a union where a descendent of slaves can become the king of the world. And in the process, in the process, lend some dignity to all of us. Maids, porters, students, an elderly bathroom attendant, and helped inspire a young, mixed kid with a funny name to have the audacity to believe he could be anything, even the president of the United States!”
It wouldn’t be nearly as irritating if this were just an occasional thing. But with Obama, it’s freakin’ chronic.
Like Forrest Gump, it all comes back to Obama. https://t.co/YCCc5FTx1K

Every. Single. Time.
Omg, Obama even made Muhammad Ali's funeral about him. He just can't help it. Smh.
