There were rumors that President Obama declared that Kanye West is a jackass after hearing about “the mic snatchin‘.” Well, Obama really did say that and TMZ got a hold of the audio, which was recorded right before he was about to do an interview with CNBC.
After the word “jackass” jumped out of his mouth, Obama quickly added, “Nooo. Nooo. I’m assuming all of this. Where’s the pool? Cut the president some slack!” But it was too late! The word was already flying around the room. As TyTy would say, “You said it! I didn’t say it! You said it!”
Maybe Obama, Kanye and Taylor can talk this out over a beer.
And I’m waiting for a white dove to fly down from heaven carrying a note in its beak that reads: “I co-sign Obama’s statement. xoxoxoJC.” I’m also waiting for Kanye West’s ALL-CAPS “OBAMA HATES DOUCEHBAG PEOPLE” rant.
UPDATE: UsWeekly says Kanye West personally called Taylor Swift and said he was sorry. Taylor said his apology was sincere and she accepted it. So, that’s that! I still think Taylor, Obama and Kanye should have a beer.
