Something both Congressman Joe Wilson and President Obama have in common it seems.
President Barack Obama called hip-hop musician Kanye West a “jackass” on Monday in an off-the-record comment during an interview with CNBC, an ABC News anchor reported on Twitter.
Obama was apparently weighing in on an interruption that occurred the night before during the MTV Video Music Awards where West grabbed the microphone from teen country singer Taylor Swift during her award acceptance speech to announce his belief that Beyonce had a better music video.
“Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a ‘jackass’ for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential,” “Nightline” co-anchor Terry Moran wrote Monday evening to his more than 1 million followers.
The tweet forced the network to issue an apology after the Internet quickly became abuzz over the stunning remark published on the microblogging site.
In related news, Kayne West replied that the President doesn’t care about
black people me. Mike Myers was prepping for his upcoming Fat Bastard movie and unavailable for comment.*
* Okay I made the last paragraph up, wrong President after all. I’m not sure about the movie though. Could be true.
