David Cameron thought Barack Obama was a narcissist, says ex-aide Steve Hilton

The man who served as David Cameron’s director of strategy said the former prime minister thought Barack Obama was one of the “most narcissistic, self-absorbed people” with whom he had ever dealt.

Steve Hilton, who was once one of Mr Cameron’s most senior advisers, now hosts a TV show on the American network Fox News.

“Obama never listened to anyone, always thought he was smarter than every expert in the room and treated every meeting as an opportunity to lecture everyone else.

“This led to real world disasters like Syria and the rise of Isis, but the real world doesn’t matter to the elites – for them it’s all about style and tone, not substance and results.”
