Obama Still Thinks Kanye’s a Jackass

It seems President Obama still holds certain opinions about Kanye West after calling out the chi-town rapper for interrupting Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV VMAs.

In an off the cuff moment after the incident, President Obama called Kanye a Jackass, leaving his presidential entourage in hysterics.

The subject was touched on again recently, in an interview with The Atlantic, when Obama was quizzed on who he preferred out of Kanye West and Jay-Z.

Almost instantaneously, the president answered Jay-Z.

“Although I like Kanye,” Obama continued. “He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.'”

The interviewer then probed further, “Even though you called him a jackass?”

“He is a jackass,” Obama replied, in a ‘likable and perfectly balanced modern-professorial voice’. “But he’s talented.”
