Barack Obama Called Kanye West a 'Jackass' for Taylor Swift Incident

Sep 17th, 2009

Forget the war! Forget health care! Let's remember that Kanye West is a JACKASS! Or so he is according to President Barack Obama. While the rest of America watched Kanye make an ass out of himself at the VMAs this past Sunday, so did our President who dubbed him a 'jackass.'

According to, the President was overheard talking trash about the self-proclaimed voice of this generation.

"In the process of reporting on remarks by President Obama that were made during a CNBC interview, ABC News employees prematurely tweeted a portion of those remarks that turned out to be from an off-the-record portion of the interview. This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologize to the White House and CNBC and are taking steps to ensure that it will not happen again." (source)

He may have said it, but the person who tweeted better watch where their job goes. Unemployment just raised a bit!
