Obama Calls Kanye A Jackass

leave a comment »

Came across this on the TMZ website. So after Kanye’s stunt on the MTV VMAs a lot of people agree that he is a dumbass for embarrassing Taylor like that. But nothing is more official than the President of the United States calling him out on it. Awesome. Here’s the full article.

TMZ has obtained the audiotape of President Barack Obama calling Kanye West a “jackass” for hijacking Taylor Swift‘s acceptance speech during the VMAs.

The audio was recorded just before Obama went on camera to do an interview with CNBC. Before the interview began, Obama — referring to Kanye’s antics on stage — said “I thought that was really inappropriate,” then adding, “He’s a jackass.”

After making the remarks, Obama said “Where’s the pool?” Presumably, he was worried the joke would go wide. He noted the last time that happened, he got burned for killing a fly.

Obama said, “Cut the President some slack.”
