    Link: Obama Calls Kanye West a Jackass - Audio of the President`s pre-interview comments. I-A-B, are you OK or concerned that the Prez is addressing the issue?

    How True....I`ve never been one of those people who would even care about meeting a president. But f#ck I just want to hang out with him, he seems like "one of us" if you know what I mean.

    Bush (during his term): `We are standing by our initial assertion that Kanye West spoke those words at an inopportune moment, and will stop at nothing to bring him to justice`

    Obama: `Jackass!`

    Obama`s way more cooler.

    should we really be shocked obama is talking about it too??
    it seems like that is what everyone is talking about.
    personally, who cares? there are lots of other things happening that are way more important.
    such as unemployment, bad housing market, credit card companys raping people, oil prices going up yet again, but did you hear about what kanye west did to taylor swift? OMG the nerve!
    at least we aren`t hearing about micheal jackson anymore.

    Oh, and spastically: I suggest you look at the definition of "epic" on the dictionary. I think the word you`re looking for is "douche".

    "There are more important things he could be talking about."

    Well, he was asked specifically what he thought about it. It sounds like they`re all joking around, and talking about less serious things. It can`t be "Mr. President what about WAR/the ENVIRONMENT/ABORTION/HEALTH CARE" 100% of the time.

    I don`t think it`s an issue of Obama having an opinion, or even speaking his opinion. The issue is the flippant name calling and unprofessionalism of him calling anyone a jackass.

    I agree Kanye is a douche and the session was informal, but the president must know that he is always on the clock and he doesn`t get the luxury of getting "a break".

    Had this been any other public figure the media would have been clammoring for an apology. But they love their buddy and would never want to make him or his cronies look bad...

    Oh, and Kanye, you are a jackass and a talentless douchebag who should go away. And Taylor doesn`t really have talent either and talks most of her songs. And Beyonce is still popular because there is nothing else to default to right now for the industry.

    besides Kanye is an ass so he deserves it...

    The guy has two young daughters, of course he knows what happened, I am certain his daughters told him all about it. And, he was right, Kanye was a jackass.

    If anything, "jackass" is a pretty tame statement.

    I think this was great.
