White House tries to pay tribute to BB King but Obama’s big head keeps getting in the way

Somehow, President Obama always makes everything about him.

He did it again Friday, when the White House paid tribute to blues legend B.B. King, who had just died, posting a video and picture of King but largely focusing on Obama.

“There’s going to be one killer blues session in heaven tonight,” the Twitter accounts for the White House and the president tweeted.

The White House’s tweet included a videotaped jam session where Obama joined King in singing, “Sweet Home Chicago,” during a White House event honoring American music in February 2014.

The Twitterverse derided the president for his naked narcissism.
