The man who believes he built everything, including Noah’s Ark (Sarcasm Fact Checkers) and former President of The United States, Barack Obama, is now claiming that the past two years of progress we are seeing is from him, and that we should be thanking him.
Don’t forget this is the same guy who took credit for the Paris Accord climate agreement.
The Free Beacon reported, “I was extraordinarily proud of the Paris accords because — you know, I know we’re in oil country and we need American energy, and by the way, American energy production,” Obama said.
“You wouldn’t always know it, but it went up every year I was president. That whole, suddenly America’s like the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas — that was me, people.”

Do you think Obama could be any more full of himself? It’s important to remember that Obama was seen as an “avowed enemy of coal and pipeline production,” and was responsible for imposing environmental regulations which did not help
The Daily Caller noted U.S. oil production indeed doubled during the Obama years, and natural gas output rose 50 percent, but the rise was mainly from work on private or state lands outside his administration’s purview. The Trump administration has dramatically increased oil production on federal lands, with Department of the Interior data stating this year has been the highest on record.
Basically, none of this had to do with Obama at all.
The former President was also apparently upset that no one credited him with the stock market growth during his tenure, which was partly because his own regulations were so bad for American businesses.
“What are you talking about? What are you complaining about? Just say, ‘Thank you,’ please,’” Obama stated.
