This Kanye scenario has one twisted turn after another.. So now its come to light that President Obama called Mr West a jackass.. mmmm I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.. Somebody lemme know if president Obama called Glenn Beck, Rush Limabaugh, preachers praying for his death, racist neo nazi types, etc.. Has he called any of them jack asses??
Now I gotta wonder is Kanye gonna get a public apology?
During a CNBC interview on Monday, President Obama called hip-hop artist Kanye West a “jackass” over his behavior at the MTV Video Music Awards. (Watch video of Kanye at the VMAs here.)
Obama’s colorful remark was actually made in an off-the-record portion of the interview that was tweeted — and then deleted — by ABC News reporter Terry Moran.
“Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a ‘jackass’ for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential,” Moran wrote.
Politico’s Michael Calderone has ABC’s statement apologizing for Moran’s journalistic breach.
