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.

  15. WEST COAST JAY AKA JUSTICE FLOWTOMAYOR Says:

    Obama didn’t say anything we haven’t said on Nah about the situation.
    Obama should’ve said no comment on this seeing how Kanye’s had his back and he came up through the Chi and all, but I don’t think Obama was wrong to call him a jackass. ‘Ye would probably agree with him.

    Stop telling Obama to get on his job, I’m sure y’all bullshit on the job from time to time too.

    Y’all are aware this comment was off the record right? This wasn’t an official interview question, just something he got asked while they were setting up mics and doing make-up. You should be thanking God every single day that you have Obama working for you instead of old-ass McCain and Palin the retard factory.

    The media are out of control. Maybe the First amendment should be amended. We are sick of these tired hacks with their overblown egos. Ever try criticizing one of them?

  29. jb Says:

    For once I totally agree with Obama… Kanye is a Jackass…. But I guess when you are a Jackass it is easy to spot another one….

  30. ok Says:

    Good for him for being honest–Kayne was a jackass..

  31. Kathy Says:

    Why is this controversial? Kanye IS a jackass, I have no trouble with the Prez speaking the truth, even if the bozo who ‘OVERHEARD’ the comment supposedly did not realize it was off the record. You could tell from Beyonce’s reaction that she agreed wtih the Prez. I would love to see Kanye’s reaction if someone pulled that stunt on him while he was receiving an award.

  32. ccsongbird Says:

    I can’t believe that the President can not ever make any comment without it being such a big deal. He is human after all, with opinions just like everybody else. He ought to be able to express his opinions without every little word he utters becoming such a blown up deal. I happen to agree with him, Kanye West is a jackass…and that is being kind. West is rude, arrogant and ignorant. Somebody needs to tell it like it is!

  33. JOHN Says:

    Dis-tape of the century. I think Kanye just got ETHER’d.

  34. Barbara Says:

    I don’t know why everybody is making a big deal out of Obama’s comment. President or not, Obama was right. Kanye’ WAS being a JACKASS and for the president to say so just means he was paying attention to what was going on on the home front instead of playing golf with his head up his ass or kissing someone else’s in a foreign country. Kanye’ taking the mic and making that comment in the middle of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech was him being a Jackass! Then Beyonce’ goes on to win Best Video ANYWAY!! If he had shut his damn mouth, he would have seen that she was getting the recognition she deserved by winning over EVERYONE, not just the FEMALES. And unfortunately, THAT is the only reason he apologized.

  35. david cole Says:

    it is very apparent that we are imploding in this country. kanye is a jackass, obama is a liar, joe wilson is from the south, everyone says they are sorry. how thin skinned we all are. everyone that disagrees with another is a racist. kids are fighting on buses. drugs are rampant, jobs are going to china. obama says he is a uniter but really it seems he and his cronies are dividing everyone into groups at each others throats. most of the states in the north and west are backrupt, the cities like detroit, chicago, new york are trash bins. tax cheaters, race baiters and ignorant people like hank johnson have a forum to spew crap. obama does not come to the south on these crazy junkets. he goes to seiu, acorn or the unions.ummmm if you dont think we are in the crapper then you are stupid. i am chickasaw indian and i know we are supposed to be just dumb indians but think of what all these democrats and republicans have done to us in the last many years. how is that hope and change working for most americans, not

  36. rick Says:

    what’s the problem for once the president is right.

  37. nancy Says:

    I was also with the same oppinion of Mr. West and as Jay Leno so nicely put it WHAT WOULD YOUR MOTHER THINK OF YOU BEHAVIOR sad sad little man as for our President Thank You truth is hard to come by you not only speak it you live it

  38. Vee Says:

    God forbid we actually have a president that is human.

  40. brandon Says:

    I think the Obama got it right for once!

  41. Shawn Emrey Says:

    Why is it that the media has become God over the past twenty or so where the so called, and I repeat the so called journalist are stepping over each other to get the big story whether it is big or not now have some sort of brakes on what they want to print? Are you kidding me? Give me a break they have printed other crap Obama has said..his remark about the coal compaines was thrown out there so now that and idiot wanna bee a big star West acts exactly like Obama said and they are worried about printing It? Hypocrits! If a white person or any other race for that matter had made the comment they would have been chatised and hung by now. YOu see in this country there is a double standard…you can’t say anything about black people unless you are black and black can say anything they want. I am Kiowa and the double standard is beyond ridiculous. If Taylors dad or mom had been asked what they thought of Kanye and they would have called him a jackass the uproar would have been out a here, even though there is man black people that think he is a jackass! Of course though, Being that Taylor is such a nice person you know that her parents taught her much better than Kanye’s so we all know they would have not said anything bad about him. Don’t wanna diss Kanye’s mom she probably tried to make him right but sometimes it don’t stick. Anyway, back to Obama…I don’t like the guy one big but some frikin what if he called Kanye a jackass? So what! There isn’t anything else that we need to actually worry about with this cluster bleeping government?

  42. Texan Says:

    Finally, Obama says something I am in total agreement.

  43. Richie Rich Says:

    Moran?………………hmm, I believe that you got it wrong!
    I’m sure his name is ‘Moron’!!

    Pres Obama is 100% straight-up and spot on for his remark..
    actually jackass is way polite……….I’d eliminate the ‘jack’
    and add ‘hole’ to the mix….what an angry and stupid, not to
    mention un-talented, young man!

    Yoy really can tell that the record manufacturers are desperate
    to have a bozo like KW on their roster!

  44. jr75 Says:

    Have to agree with Kathy. You can’t go wrong when you speak the truth. and its pretty obvious West isn’t truely sorry he has serious issues, its not the first time he’s done this. people like him are who kids look up to today, explain why our prisons are full. Lets all just do what we want who cares who we trample over in the process. Focus on that problem and fix it, not the Prez just stating a fact, and maybe life might get better for everyone!!

  45. Cat Says:

    Takes one to know one!!!!!

  46. The truth for once Says:

    Kanye West is a jacka$$. These rappers kill me, they think because they talk sh&* they are the sh*&. He’s a punk a@@ little B*tch…all 5’7″ of him!!! lmao

  47. Nita Says:

    SO WHAT! Did you not think the same thing? Now at last we have a person who has ball to say what he wants and give less than a damn who hears it. What about the Shiggy Bush has said over the years. What about people in the house calling Him a Liar. WTF

  48. red Says:

    Obama is human, we all have our opinions and he has the right to his. I whole-heartedly agree. RUDE is RUDE, black/white/brown……….it doesn’t have anything to do w/color, just bad manners!

  49. DWG Says:

    Kudos Mr. President. One more example of you calling it like it is. Why is this a racial thing? A Black man can’t be called a jackass because he’s black? PULEEZ! A jackass is a jackass. Whether it’s Kanye West at the VMA or Rep. Wilson in Congress. What is up with this Bill O’Reilly in your face be rude to each other for buzz and ratings culture? Respect Miss Taylor for her hard work and success, RESPECT President Obama for his. This is not a race thing- it’s a sad commentary on our ignorance is bliss culture. WAKE UP!!!! Mr. Wilson would not have said these things to a white president and Mr. West would not have said these things to a black recipient of a VMA. Let’s move on people! People should be judged by what they contribute to the world. If one chooses to judge all that disagree in a negative light- let them be judged by such standards. He who lives in a glass house should not cast the first stone…

  50. OB43 Says:

    West IS the biggest “jackass” in the entertainment industry.Prez hit it right on the head. He is the most egotistical,self centered idiot around.He actually thinks he is a God.What gives him the right to interupt anyone? He is a “jackass with a way too high oplnion of himself. A poor excuse for a man. Obama said nothing that anyone with any sense already knew.

  52. Jennifer Says:

    Really? Have we not wasted enough time on this total garbage. I am so sorry Taylor Swift got stepped on and The President said a bad word!! Wow really, let he or she who is without sin cast the first stone. I have more important things to worry about like my job and my children’s future, having enough money to pay my rent and buy my medication each month. How about the rest of you anyone ever said a bad word, cussed out someone, been a human being? I bet even my two year old granddaughter has used worse language than jackass. Lets save our citizens jobs and health care.

  53. BUR Says:

    Big ups to 50 cent. I would pay to see West try that S#@t with him. He’d be picking his teeth up off the stage.

  54. F HUNTER Says:

    THE REAL JACKASS IS REP.WILSON,SC ALONG WITH K.WEST THEY SHOULD HOOK UP

  55. MaryLynn Says:

    The President (POTUS) speaks the truth. Who teaches common courtesy these days…get Kanye their phone number, web address, etc. Can he be detoxed?

  56. Sara Says:

    That’s the only thing out of Obama’s mouth that has made any sense.
    Why should ABC apologize???, ???

    The brother dissing the brother= priceless…………..

  57. Katja Says:

    Come on, give Obama a break. He is human too , you know. Kanye was a jackass-how would he feel if someone did that to him?????I am sick and tired of people slamming Obama. He is our Prez and I have respect for him. Right now I don’t have respect for Kanye.

  58. White boy Says:

    Obama did right by calling Kanye a jackass, and he is. He is the biggest P.O.S out there. He thinks his shit don’t stink and he needs to be put in his place. Everytime his music comes on I turn it off, I will never listen to him and MTV needs to stop inviting him to the awards.

    I also think that Obama needs to have a juice convention and sit them both down just like he did to the Cambridge Police Sgt. for doing his job. That comment was far more devistating that calling a P.O.S a jackass.

  59. Hmmmmmmm Says:

    SO WHAT…. He is a JACKASS

  60. Capt. Wafer Says:

    Just saw that hood rat-Kanye-on PUNK’D. He fought the law and he won.
    Real GANSTA…..He’s a RACIST as well as a JACKASS, just like the most powerful man on the planet said….Well, I thought he said!!!!!!!!!!

  61. Hmmmmmmm Says:

    Its the only thing this Prez has said that makes any sense!

  62. Don Says:

    Hmmmm… That’s the first thing that President Obama said that didn’t require a press conference, a joint session of congress, another trip on Air Force One… or a Teleprompter! Imagine that! Better yet… he was right on the money! Why all the fuss! He called it the way he saw it! In the end, however, I’ll bet the Black community will find a way to play the race card on this issue as well… but wait, both are Black! Oh my, what will they do now??

  63. Ethom90148 Says:

    He was a jackass for saying it however, this was nothing more than an attempt to embarass the President. What is wrong with you people?

  64. Mike D. Says:

    What kind of comment was Obama supposed to make about this? Why is it such a big deal that he said “jackass?” P!nk said that Kanye was the biggest piece of shit on earth. Why isn’t she getting attacked on that statement? It’s not like Obama came out in an actual press conference and said it. He was just having a private conversation and was overheard. NOBODY can ALWAYS be professional, it’s impossible.

  65. Mari Says:

    President Obama only said outloud, (wether or not it was meant to be heard) what we all have said since the inncident… Kayne is a Jackass… a hood rat with no class…one that can sing, but a hood rat none the less.

  66. ronnie crouch Says:

    he was asked what he thought and he gave an honest answer–the president can have an opinion also and as usual he is right again

  67. Leap Says:

    I think the Media loves to say bad things about the President if he had not answered the question something would have been said about that what about the Senator that down right disrespected the President a called him a liar that was okay I guess. It seems like the Media as gone all out this week with Serina West and Know the President sounds a bit races to me. Black people can’t say a thing without it getting all blown up Bush lies about the weapons of mass distruction and gave Wall Street all that money that we did not see and Obama gets people to buy new cars the the clunkers and all hell breaks loos WOW !! Shame on you.

  68. Trizsms Says:

    I agree with The President.Kanye West IS A Jackass!The President is Just Keeping it real.As U should be able to appreciate.

  69. Terry Says:

    Why everyone trippn about Obama……The Man is human he has opinions just like everyone else. Oh, society don’t expect the president to be real..Get over it and stop expecting this perfect demeanor from everyone. Kanye was out of order and should expect some not so nice comments from people even the president. My President is real..He is not God a human being made by God that makes choices….So get over it…I could just imagine what what the whole world said even the people you least expect…..My President is a good man and He has not committed a crime for speaking an opinion and I agree with him..Kanye is a jackass…..Obama on the other hand is an upright abiding citizen…..Go Obama Go……

  70. Kim Says:

    FINALLY—The President says something that I actually AGREE WITH!!!!! KANYE WAS A JACKASS FOR DOING WHAT HE DID. And shame on him for trying to blame his grief over his mother’s death. I’m sure she’s ashamed of him for what he did, too!

  71. Susan L Says:

    The press is apologizing to Obama for what HE SAID??? He is President, and acts like he is above everyone else…now he is using profanity to describe someone, and he wants the press to apologize for getting the word out??!!!

    I voted for you once barack. NEVER AGAIN.

  72. rashida Says:

    I’m with Kathy AND OBAMA…KANYE IS A JACKASS!!!! It just took the president to make it official. I have never heard a taylor swift song, however, i’m sure she has work just as hard as beyonce and any other artist out there. Bea certainly didn’t need Kanye to speak up for her, she has hova for that if it was necessary. Beyonce and Taylor Swift are both class acts in my book. Kanye you just fell off!

  73. D. Lee Says:

    Its about time the President makes an accurate statement… The president had every right on commenting on this because this is obviously RACIST RACIST RACIST what that punk did. He messed with the wrong lil girl and it could of very well got heated up a lot more than what it did. I would also like to know what Rev. Jesse Jackson thinks of this or what he thinks of the group of black kids beating the hell out one white kid on a school bus?!?!?! HUH Rev. Jackson!!! I got news for the world. Racism exist very much in this country but it isnt white hating blacks..

  74. D. Lee Says:

    So good job Mr. President im glad for you….

  75. Ben Zagga Says:

    While I agree that Kanye West should be reprimanded for his despicable action towards the young lady, nevertheless it is unbecoming of president of the United States to bring himself so low to call Kanye a Jackass and inject himself into unnecessary controversy and distraction. The president is better served responding to a no comment and acting presidential. He is always compelled to respond to every dick and harry and in so doing, look unpresidential.

  76. D. Lee Says:

    And as for that Terry Moron fella what a childish tattle-tale lil punk…All I could think of is some 7 year old running and telling his mom ” Unnnn mommy he-he hit me Unnnnnnnn

  77. lovemac Says:

    terry moran should be called the jacka$$! off the record is off the record. not a fan of obama but his privacy to an off the record remark should been kept private. to twitter the president’s off the record remarks is grounds for firing as far as i am concerned. did not vote for obama. have mixed emos about him, but i am sick of the lack of respect he gets shown as the leader of this nation. it is appalling!

    p.s. kanye deserves to be called much worse than a jacka$$

  78. Strano Says:

    Being president of the U.S. entitles you to many things – except a personal opinion. Tell it like it is, Obama. You’re spot on this time. Why are people so worked up with the word “jackass” anyway? Jackass: 1. A male ass or donkey. 2. A foolish or stupid person.

    If the saddle fits, wear it. What a rude, deluded MF. Sit down and shut up, and wait for your name to be called at an award ceremony.

  79. fcmaximus Says:

    This is one Republican who’s damn proud he voted for Mr. OBAMA!!! I’m proud to have a President who calls a jackass a jackass without reservation. Say what you mean and mean what you say! And for the record, look what our President has inherited from a bunch of right wing fanatics that did nothing but get a bunch of our boys killed in Iraq. After 9/11 Bush waited patiently then went into Afgan. to get Bin Laden but then screwed it all up by lying(over 900 times) about WMDs in Iraq. Should’ve stayed the course in Afgan and taken out Bin Laden and the whole world would have at least understood. Then they all, SEC included, look the other way so they can get rich off no doc. mortgages, insurance fraud, lending fraud, cdo’s and all that other crap….and then have the audacity to blame our current President for it. To my Democrat friends, the Grand Ole Party is what Teddy Roosevelt and Abe Lincoln made it, not what these present day right wing, “better than though” fanatics want you to beleive it has become. Moderate Republicans like myself will rule once again. We proved what can happen when you piss us off. We vote for the Man, OBAMA!!!

  80. Tim Says:

    Say…………………………, why is everybody trippin on Obama, he is just a man like eveybody else. Truth be told,………….. Kayne was wrong for that shit he pulled………… Truth be told…………….. So why is everybody trying to down the PRESIDENT over some remarks. What you think, this man is a robot or something, lets be real and stop all this hattin. Ya’ll should be ashamed of yoselfs,………… this shit aint right……………… You know good and well Kayne was wrong and yes he was a asshole for that. He even asmitted it. So support the man thats trying to save you ass from dying, instead of going to war………………. MAN BE REAL, STOP HATTIN

  81. Janet Says:

    He is right~!!!! He is a jackass! Should the presz NOT say what is ture???????? Thank God we have some one who will say what the rest of us think. We all should be held to a higher standered. Who better to tell us that we are wrong then the prez!!!!!!!!!!

  82. toodlum48 Says:

    one said it takes a jackass to call a jackass about the obama comment… i guess that means everybody informed of kanye’s actions are jackasses,even you who made the comment….kanye the jackass needs to lay off the scotch @ award shows and do some soul searching’ about who he is & what is real in his life, then kanye can begin to act like a human being..for once in his life. people who do such actions are crying out..so self-reflect, kanye, before you self-destruct.

  83. je Says:

    why yall tripping about the president being black? when the whites was in charge what happened? This black president is not only black but he is intelligent. He really spoke the truth. Who was it that aired this about the Pres? A white guy? HMMMMM…Haters! What out in a couple of years. It took the whites to mess up this world and you are wanting the black man to straighten it out in a couple of months. That’s just how simple minded people are. Give my president a minute he will show you.

  84. Jackie O Says:

    When a black man becomes president he is a Super Niger. When a white man is president he is a Superior Man. The President is entitled to his opinion just like everyone else and I like Mr. Obama’s truthfulness and “jackass” isn’t a derogatory term, if that is in fact what he said. Mr. Obama is a man who can be trusted because he keeps it real. There are too many fake folk in the world who act like they don’t know what life is about. Judge Mr. Obama by the same standards as his white counterparts and the reaction would be totally different. Racism is same situation different evaluation.
    Just keeping it real!

  85. marlena Says:

    so what obama called his a jackass he is a jackass adrianne curry got called a racist for calling him a d****ebag which he also is he got drink embarrased himself taylor and beyonce he should be ashamed of himself and jackass is the mildest think i’ve heard him called since it happened i’m sure his mom is turning over in her grave

  86. CoolBee Says:

    The fact is that Kanye did act like a jackass in this situation.

    The usage of the word has nothing to do with the President’s skin color. We hear the word, jackass, used by people of different races all the time. That being said, Obama could have chosen a different word to describe his feeling about this situation. Because Obama is the President of USA, he just has to be more careful with what he said on and off the record, as many of his opponents are looking for any and all possible ways to discredit/disrespect him.

  87. Corina Says:

    For crying out loud, people. Kanye’s behavior was so unacceptable, especially since he is the “adult”. Obama had the same point of view as pretty much everybody elses’. So what?!.
    Since Obama became president, it seems that the majority expects results right away even though the country was a fu**ing mess when he was elected. Be a bit more patient.
    It is a shame that unscrupulous reporters would back-stab their own president to get a lame story out there. There is so much garbage coming out from the media already. Why don’t they get out something positive for a change, instead of instigating?

  88. spicy Says:

    You know you’re a loser when the most powerful man on the planet says you are a jackass. Kayne needs help… he should do the Forum from Landmark Education. Otherwise he is doomed to be a jackass forever I believe.

  89. andrea webb Says:

    who cares. Whatever happened to free speech? kanye is a jackass. and he should be called out.

  90. kd Says:

    Hey y’all this is NOT an issue of black vs. white – get real. Obama thought he was off the record and expressed himself ( saying what the majority of people were thinking BTW), end of story, no big deal.

  91. inez Says:

    DO I REALLY CARE WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID ABOUT KANYE WEST? HELL NAW. LET’S GET DOWN TO HEALTH CARE.

  92. Darrin Says:

    Kanye IS a jackass! Enough said. Leave Obama alone. He’s not a saint. He reacted to it just like anyone else would. End of story. There are much more important matters at hand.

  93. raaa Says:

    What’s controversial?

    Kanye was a jackass. The question was related to President Obama’s girls watching the awards show.

    Kanye admits he was wrong.

    What’s the controversy?

    Is it because the red necks never expected the president to be honest about a black performer? I mean, unless the red necks admit they have been racially motivated in their lies and hate speech trying to defend the health care mafia, this isn’t news at all.

    Unless, of course the red necks and racial media are actually ADMITTING their true colors!

    We support you calling Kanye a Jack Ass Mr. President. There. How’s that?

  94. maverick Says:

    Kanye is a jackass… furthermore hes a jackass puppet who cant sing… hes a media front man.. a no talent mouthpiece… not sure what the big issue is here… obama is just a man like rest of us… has his opinions.. should be allowed them with out press drama..

  95. Vhee Says:

    Hey, I don’t think President Obama did anything wrong in calling Kanye a fool. Kanye did act like a jackass, and for those who don’t know, “jackass” is not a profane word. It just means fool. He acted like an idiot and he admitted it himself. Dude has issues, he needs to take a time out to deal with the fame that’s gone to his head!

  96. crabbylee Says:

    should have said Kanye’s a bigoted asshole, and nobody should be buying his shit.

  97. Stephanie Says:

    If the prez views an action and based on the action calls a person a jackass? Its entirely his opinion of the action and not necessarily the person. Besides why on earth would Kanye interupt another person’s award speech? Who on earth made him the judge anyways? Love Kanye as much as i do, that was completely of tangent. Very jackass. Give the president some credit people, the man has got a very recommendable sense of judgement, after all, last time i checked, he is a man and also there has always been freedom of speech in America, his opinion is entirely his.

  98. Chuck Says:

    that jackass had no reason to get up there and say that! how would he like it if he was up on a stage getting award and someone came up there and did that to him.Hats off to Obama good job I would of said the same thing if ask.

  99. SIN CITY Says:

    I THINK THIS IS BULLSHIT AND I BELIEVE THAT THE ISSUE OF PARENTS NOT WANTING HIM TO SPEAK TO STUDENTS IS JUST DOWN RIGHT DUMB THAT SHIT WOULDNT HAVE HAPPENED 20,30,40 YEARS AGO ESPEACIALLY IF HE WAS WHITE AND TO THOSE WHO CRITICIZE THE PRESIDENT FOR MAKING A COMMENT ABOUT SOMEONE THAT SHOULD SET A BETTER EXAMPLE A JACKASS WHICH HE DID ACT LIKE ONE , SHUT THE FUCK UP IT WAS A PERSONAL COMMENT BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE HAVING A CONVERSATION , FUCKIN MEDIA IS DESTROYING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BY TREATING US LIKE IDIOTS

  104. nancy Says:

    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.

  105. 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.

  106. 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.

  108. MARK Says:

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

  109. 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……

  110. Don Says:

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

  111. TMills Says:

    At last I finally agree with Obama on something!

  112. 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.

  113. 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?

  114. 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.

  115. 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.

  116. L. Green Says:

    Shoot the d_ _ messenger

  117. 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.

  118. 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!

  119. Don Says:

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

  120. etlocco Says:

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

    et

  121. ron Says:

    the pres finally said something I agree with

  122. Denise Says:

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

  123. 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!

  124. 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.

  125. who Says:

    Kanye is not a jackass. He is a drunken jackass

  126. 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.

  127. 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

  128. 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.

  129. 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.

  130. JIMBO Says:

    talk about a lieing jack-off thats obimbo for you

  131. 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.

  132. 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

  133. JIMBO Says:

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

  134. 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…

  135. 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.
