Watch A Reporter Ask Jay Carney About Jay-Z’s ‘Open Letter’

Jay-Z’s trip to Cuba took a turn for the ridiculous on Thursday when a reporter asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney for clarification on Jay-Z’s new song “Open Letter,” in which the rap mogul seemed to imply that President Barack Obama had personally cleared his getaway.

The reporter went so far as to recite the lyrics directly to Carney, then asked whether they were true.

To which Carney basically replied, “Lol, no, bye.”

Watch the video, above.
