Wow. Just after he said that you can see the realization that he really said that after becoming president flash across his face. Talk about an "Oh crud" moment! Mulligan anyone? lol

Also, I`d hate to be Kanye! He just got OWNED by the president.

Yeah, Obama is still cool. 1) I agree, and 2) he delivered the line, as 23426-whatever said, in a manner that`s so cool it could end all global warming in one fell swoop.

"Im Australian and dont give a rats ass about american politics but Obama is a cool dude. way better than our Prime minister Kevin Rudd now he`s a jackass"

He might not be as "cool" as Obama but he`s way better than Malcolm Turnbull! I can`t stand that guy...

Wow, the president acting like a normal human being. Shocking.

You can hear in his voice, however, when he says "hang on now guys" (or something like that), his automatic regret of word choice.

Who cares, he`s only human. Believe it or not, he is allowed to have an opinion on things non politics related. Now I have no idea whether Obama`s doing a good job with America, being a good president etc., but he me, he seems like a pretty cool down to earth guy.

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.

its nice to know that our president is actually human ~sarcasm~ it wasnt like any official statement, so who cares. it is not like he was adressing V Putin or anything.

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

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.

"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 agree with mcflylives. There are more important things he could be talking about. Yes I am happy it`s not all about Michael Jackson anymore.

But....It was pretty damn funny to hear the clip on tv last night.

Man, Obama kicks ass.

"Kanye was EPIC for saying that though."

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".

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.

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.

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.
