President Obama called Kayne West a ‘jackass’ back in 2009 and it seems he hasn’t changed his mind!
Kim Kardashian‘s boyfriend Kanye West is going to have to try hard to get back in President Obama‘s good graces! In September 2009, Obama famously called Kanye “a jackass” after the rapper’s onstage ambush of country cutie Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards. Apparently his feelings haven’t changed one bit!
In the May issue of The Atlantic, the President was asked whether he was on team Jay-Z or Kanye. Without hesitation, Obama answered, “Jay-Z,” before adding, “although I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.”
When the writer, David Samuels, reminded the President of his earlier “jackass” snipe, Obama quipped, “He is a jackass. . . But he’s talented.”
What do YOU think about Obama calling Kanye a jackass again?
