President Obama Calls Kanye West a “Jackass” — Again
Barack Obama still thinks Kanye West is a Melrose Place superbitch…albeit a “talented” one.
In other breaking news, the sky is blue and grass is green.
The Commander-in-Chief took a break from tackling tough issues like job creation and balancing the economy (at least we hope that’s what he was doing) to chat with The Atlantic magazine.
Atlantic scribe David Samuels stopped chatted up Obama recent fundraiser and the conversation quickly turned toward whether the Prez reps Team Jay-Z or Team Kanye.
“Jay-Z, although I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.”
Naturally, Samuels reminded Sir Barack about that awkward time back in 2009 when he famously branded the Watch the Throne emcee a “jackass” for cutting into Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Well, let’s just say he’s opinion has changed all that much.
“He is a jackass,” Obama told Samuels. “But he’s talented.”
