With the MTV
Video Music Awards in our rear-view-mirror, it's time to reflect. After Kanye
pulled the now infamous Taylor Swift incident, many people reacted but probably
no one was noticed more than the President of the United States, Barack Obama.
While getting ready for an interview, the President simply called Kanye a
"Jackass." Kanye now responded to the President calling him out…
called me “jackass”, after the Taylor incident, I thought that the person to be
speaking off the record. Obama has way more important stuff to worry about than
my public perception. He was trying to pass the healthcare bill. And if he said
that to relate to the room or lighten the room up and the whole mood, then I’d
be more than happy to be the butt of all of his jokes if it in the some way
helps his overall mission. I’m a soldier of culture. I’m resilient. I’m sure
I’ll still beat him in basketball."
