If it is giving a Eulogy, no.
There is a rather sharp distinction between those two things. I realize you are trying to say that I was blowing the Presidents' continual self-absorption out of context by referencing it, but the argument you are attempting to bring to bear here to do so is fail.
H.W. Bush used to go through his speeches after final drafting and perform what he called an "I-Ectomy". He would remove all the "I"s, unless the sentence was him accepting responsibility for something that had gone wrong. It is extremely unlikely it would occur to our current President that doing so would even be advantageous.
