Obama speaks to troops in Afghanistan, gives shout-out to self


President Obama gave a shout-out to President Obama during a surprise visit to Afghanistan on Tuesday.

Speaking to American troops gathered at Bagram Air Base, the president called out the names of several military units “in the house”—who cheered upon hearing their name—before adding: “And we’ve got me in the house.”

The president did not appear to applaud himself when his name was mentioned. He has a history of impressive self-regard.
