President Obama Says He Has Better Things To Do Than Plan Beyonce And Jay-Z's Vacation
No, the White House didn't OK their trip to Cuba.
He told TODAY's Savannah Guthrie:
"I wasn't familiar that they were taking the trip. My understanding is I think they went through a group that organizes these educational trips down to Cuba. You know, this is not something the White House was involved with."
In other words: Nice try, kids.
Obama got dragged into this mess after Jay-Z released a song called "Open Letter," in which he basically implied the President gave them the OK to visit Cuba.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney later commented on the issue with a similar "Yeah, no" reaction.
