Obama Calls Kanye West a “Jackass”

By: Celebuzz / September 15, 2009

Uh-oh, Kanye West better watch out. He has just incurred the wrath of the Most Powerful Man in the World.

In an off-the-record comment that has naturally found its way onto the Internet, President Barack Obama weighed in on West’s super-rude interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.

“Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a ‘jackass’ for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won,” ABC’s Terry Moran tweeted yesterday, as the Chief Executive was doing an interview with CNBC. “Now THAT’S presidential.”

Hmm; do we detect a note of sarcasm from Moran?

Either way, it’s clear that Kanye West is one turkey who most likely won’t be receiving a presidential pardon this Thanksgiving.
