President Obama on Kanye West: Still a Jackass!

by at . Comments

It doesn't appear that President Obama's opinion of Kanye West has changed.

After Obama let it slip before an interview (below) with ABC's Nightline two years ago that he thought the rapper was a "jackass" for interrupting Taylor Swift's speech at the MTV VMAs, he offered up a further assessment of him this week.

The verdict? Unchanged.

Asked if he prefers Kanye or Jay-Z," the President replied with a smile, "Jay-Z. Although I do like Kanye. He's a Chicago guy. Smart. He's very talented."

After being reminded of the slam heard around the world, Obama stuck to his guns regarding the outspoken performer and boyfriend of Kim Kardashian.

"He is a jackass," he added. "But he's talented."

His girlfriend, on the other hand ...

@Tequila I've followed your comments and those whom you call out to with support and praise. What a network of goons you all are. Born Yesterday? has every right to make that comment about somebody coming up behind them pretending to be them. There are ppl doing that here on this site. I think you know them, too. Not paranoia...just calling a spade a spade!


The epitome of's out there driving you nuts is doin an effing good job!


You are the Racist/ Tequila 9 1 1 . You think you are slick? You write then you write to yourself. If you had any looks you would not be pecking. You pretend to apologize for others comments. You don't have anyone to give you attention. No man!


Talk about being daft can you be?
Re-read ur comment and then tell us again who is really racist, inciting racism...loser..


Obama's lame comment about a Black Rapper Punk Boy? If that is an attempt to even the playing Field in Obamas Racist Movement in dividing this Country- Well it ain't gonna work!
Obama with his Boy Eric " Hitler" Holder- they have an agenda! My guess- it ain't pretty. His Party has stooped to a low and let the Cat out of the bag as far as how they veiw women. Wake Up White People. Any one coming behind me and saying they are my user- is a liar! I speak the truth and don't change my mind! No- I wasn't born Yesterday!
