Audio: President Obama Calls Kanye a “Jackass”

As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, the POTUS made  some “off the record” remarks about Yeezy’s antics at the VMAs yesterday as he was preparing for an interview with ABC News. After an ABC staffer tweeted the President’s statement, the comment immediately ended up on the record, and now TMZ has liberated the audio.

    Most of you should be ashamed at how you speak about the leader of our contry. Be greatful you live in the USA or you could be shot for sayin such things. He is a great leader and will cintinue to prove that, however he is only human.
    Kanye is a jackass and has proved that over & over again.
    The country would be a better place if we all looked up to the people trying to improve our lifes, instead of worshiping singers & actors.

  5. Marty Says:

    Every one is entitled to an opinion,the President has his,I personally think that calling Kanye a Jackass was very disrespectful to the hard working “four” legged animal. Every one is responsible for thier actions and I’m sure that the President and Kanye learned their lesson.

  6. FEE FEE Says:

    Why is it every time President Obama opens his mouth all of you JACKASSES has to find something wrong with what he said ? And yes I called all of you ass wholes jackasses. All of you REDNECKS hate President Obama because he is HALF BLACK. You need to get over yourselves.Did you miss the part about him being HALF WHITE? Just because he has dark skin is the reason he is being put under the microscope. If any of you fools are black that’s making some of these comments, I would like to know one thing. What in the hell is wrong with you ? Kanye is a jackass.As for jb, since you know that it takes a jackass to know one,what does it say about you? JACKASS !!! Also, for the person that overheard the comment he couldn’t wait to put it out there.Here again it was made public because President Obama is MULATTO and inherited his father’s complexion.As for all of you BIGOTS, YOU’RE ALL IDIOTS and my I say” JACKASSES” too.

    What is bama saying about everyone else in this great country?

  9. Annette Says:

    Kathy so TRUE! The president is human (by the way people)…I actually respect the fact that he said what he said (off the record or not) Kayne is a JACKASS!!!! He shoulda been escorted out like any non-celeberty would have been….Beyonce handled herself beautifully by trying to restore some of Taylors evening……

  10. Don Says:

    First thing he has said that I 1-believe and 2- agree with.

  11. TMills Says:

    At last I finally agree with Obama on something!

  12. k. bishop Says:

    That about sums it up Kathy :))

    Harlem World – you have Obama all wrong. He has not been lazing on the job – just the opposite. He’s taking on an issue with health care that the last several presidents were unable or unwilling to do. Obama grew a pair and I for one commend him on it. You probably don’t understand this personally, my guess is that you are too young to understand just how important it is to get good health care, but think of your parents and grandparents. He has to risk failing to succeed – AND THAT TAKES REAL GUTS.

  13. Matt Says:

    Again the stupid News missed the story! Kanye was a JACKASS!

    Why is the story that ABC should have kept this fact SECRET?

  14. concerned Says:

    The Presiden of the usa calls an ‘entertainer’ a jackass and everyone goes crazy. The guy IS a jackass. BUT the United States President is so worried about the ‘media’ he apologies, this is truly a sorry state of affairs.

  15. L. Green Says:

    What is this? Everybody will be affected regarding medical issues, through their families. Can’t we as humans just get alone, Congress is so Elementary.

  16. L. Green Says:

    Shoot the d_ _ messenger

  17. L. Green Says:

    Sadly said if Kanye is having some serious issue here is the signs, because later it will not be funny. Seem to me he’s acting out and I don’t here anybody addressing these issues. And everybody that blurt out disrespectful things should be given a stiff fine or ban from being on public T. V.

  18. L. Green Says:

    Who use term. House Niggas? Other than somebody that stupid; and they must have thought Gee my mother vagina is soo…… big like my mouth nothing else could drop out but me!

  19. Don Says:

    Pres Obama is correct. Case closed. Good Call Pres.

  20. etlocco Says:

    the President is right. k-west is a f*%#n idiot.

    et

  21. ron Says:

    the pres finally said something I agree with

  22. Denise Says:

    So, I guess that means you’re a Jackass too…..

  23. margie Says:

    I think it ‘s great that our president is not afraid to speak his mind! Maybe next time kanye will mind his own business. I mean it has to hurt when the President calls you a Jackass!

  24. slowsilver Says:

    The president hit it dead on. Kanye is an icehole, jackass, punk, whatever you want to call him. These rap stars make a little money and and begin to think they are gods, judge and jury. What would behoove a person to think that they could snatch a mike from someone during their moment and berate them? I’d like to see him do that during the Source Awards.

  25. who Says:

    Kanye is not a jackass. He is a drunken jackass

  26. Denise Says:

    President Obama only said what most “adults” his age are saying. In my opinion the comment should have been on the record. There’s no shame in telling someone when they are wrong. The older generation are suppose to correct the younger generation. You don’t truly love people by sitting quiet while they do wrong. We still love Kanye, but dude was wrong and his character needs a little adjusting. Black people will get over what Obama said, because the thing I love the most about us, is the fact that we are a forgiving race.

  27. Cayenne43 Says:

    I didn’t vote for Obama, wouldn’t vote for him and it has nothing to do with his color or racial issues… I just knew he said change but not necessarily the exact kind of change that might or might not be beneficial to this country and it’s people. Point here is why are we not allowed to hear what his true opinions are and statements. Kayne is a jackass. Beyonnce was even embarrassed by what happened. He wanted the attention he got and is still getting… C

  28. Shiela Says:

    Give the man a break! He is human just like the rest of us. Do you think that since he is president he should be politically correct every single moment even in private? He has opinions just like the rest of us and should be able to without repercussion. By the way, Kanye WAS a jackass for doing what he did. I bet some of his close associates thought the same thing, just won’t voice it. He has also since apologized and Beyonce handeled the situation like the compassionate woman she is. Let’s go onto other more important things like getting our country out of this stink hole it has sunk into.
    I will add…I did not vote for Obama, but he is my president and I will support him because the majority decided he is the best man for this very significant position in our country.

  29. g Says:

    Well Kanye was wrong and yes he was a jack ass, Obama, is down to earth and he speaks his mind, I love that about him. I wish people would stop over re-acting about the things Obama is trying to do, Look at what our country have been through, Our money situtaion was jacked up way befoore Obama got into office, it is not his fault that our country is broke, everybody waving stupid posters at some dumb protest calling Obama the anti christ or that he is hitler, Bush was Hitler’s twin and he really tried to destroy this world, we all had to suffer and lose lots of money behind his stupid begging to support the war, our soilders had no right to go there, and all the billions of dollars he took from us could have helped us out.

  30. JIMBO Says:

    talk about a lieing jack-off thats obimbo for you

  31. g Says:

    Lots of Whites and some Blacks are so against Obama being president I hear black people calling him a house nigger, and white people calling him a nigger, I think all who oppose Obama being president is not fair, why is it when a person who wanna help our country get the bad end of the stick when you take some one like George Bush and put him on a pedastal, I hear His brother wanna be president, Do you really think we need another BUSH in the house, But people so dumb and stupid they would try to vote Obama in just to keep from looking at a black man face in the white house, I feel you will be committing suicide if you try to get him out of office right now seriously, all because you don’t want a NIGGER in the HOUSE< Y’ALL some stupid ass mofo’s for not wanting Obama in the white house, that is the only reason why white people are acting the way they are acting because our president is Black.

  32. g Says:

    Obama is a very fine choice for our country, I feel very fortunate to have this man in office, I just wish negative minded people would just lay step back, You all showing your true coloars about the president when you talk negative about him , That mean you are racist. ADMIT IT

  33. JIMBO Says:

    hey i am a racist-i dont like the white half or the black half
    of the joker

  34. D. Lee Says:

    How dare anyone say that Bush is responsible for our boys death in the war. WHo ever thinks that Fuck you, you communist unpatriotic SOB. Our country was attacked by terriorist belame them Pres. Bush did the American thing by attacking back. What was he supposed to do??? Not fight back and give the Taliban complete control of American soil. So you go to hell. Obama thinks he inherited a bad situation Bush had 9-11 on his watch and any real American backs him for his decision to strike back. I jus wish the war wasn’t so political and we could just go in and take care of business. But blame your fruity liberals for that…

  35. Elka24 Says:

    D. LEE is most definitley a jackass as are all those who regurgatate neocon spin. Attacking Iraq was the single most fool hardy thing ever done by a United States president, particularly in terms of a military decision.The reason the Taliban is back in power in Afghanastan is because Bush focused all of his attention on Iraq (incidentally, if you actually study history you would know The United States Of America did business with Hussein, in fact Cheney met with him for various business deals in the late 1980’s). These men you laud are nothing more than yes men to a dictator.

    Had Bush focused soley on Afghanastan chances are the taliban would have remained crushed rather than rising back up into power. Afterall, it is they, not Sudam Hussein, who are responsible for 9/11. The small number of troops in Afghanastan, including my fiance, loathe ass wipes like you who fan the flames of divisiveness soley for the purpose of self amusement. You wrap yourself in The American flag and spout your fake American patriotism while good men and women, true patriots, come back home with their coffins draped in the American flag.
    I implore you to join the military and ship off to Afghanastan in order to show just how serious you are in your support for the former administration. Share your viewpoints with the units there who have been deployed for moths and months-I’m quite sure they would be more than happy to show you their gratitude for your viewpoint by placing you in the infintry unit, front line.
