Barack Obama Hates Taking Selfies, Here’s Why!

If we had pictures of everything I’ve done when I was in high school, I probably wouldn’t have been President of the United States,” said Obama.

The sassy and ever-charming former President of the United States, Barack Obama, has some interesting opinions about the selfie-craze that has engulfed everyone–especially the millennials.

While he does smile that gorgeous smile for all his admirers, who stick the front-facing camera to his face, he really doesn’t like taking selfies, at all.

Speaking to the audience at the Obama Foundation Summit, in Chicago, the former POTUS established a basic rule that the attendees of the summit weren’t allowed to take selfies with him or his wife, Michelle, USA Today reported.

Obama then further went on to explain his decision, “It may seem trivial, but it’s not. I say this because, one of the weird things about becoming president is, I found that people were no longer looking me in the eye and shaking my hand.”

This isn’t the first time the leader has been vocal about his dislike towards millennials’ favourite pastime.

While giving a speech at DC Benjamin Banneker Academic High School last year, Obama mimicked a millennial to perfection in the act of taking selfie, to reiterate his point.

He further advised, “If we had pictures of everything I’ve done when I was in high school, I probably wouldn’t have been President of the United States.”

While Obama may not be the president of America anymore, he still rules hearts worldwide with his pearls of wisdom, which he showers every now and then.
