Obama

Caught on Tape

Calling Kanye 'Jackass'

9/15/2009 5:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Obama Caught on Tape Calling Kanye 'Jackass'TMZ has obtained the audiotape of President Barack Obama calling Kanye West a "jackass" for hijacking Taylor Swift's acceptance speech during the VMAs.

The audio was recorded just before Obama went on camera to do an interview with CNBC. Before the interview began, Obama -- referring to Kanye's antics on stage -- said "I thought that was really inappropriate," then adding, "He's a jackass."

After making the remarks, Obama said "Where's the pool?" Presumably, he was worried the joke would go wide. He noted the last time that happened, he got burned for killing a fly.

Obama said, "Cut the President some slack."

Here is Mike, another shining example of the profound lack of intelligence and education in modern America. The ability to yell or make abusive comments is not proof of the strength of your argument - remember that old addage - "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool rather than to speak and remove all doubt."

Keep chirping Mike, oh and by the way, can I have a diet Coke with my fries?

So let me get this straight... it's OK for Obama to call Kanye a jackass, but it's NOT ok for Joe Wilson to yell out "you lie"? Sounds like liberal hypocracy to me.

Hey 133, you are too stupid to realize that he is right. The nazis weren't called the National Socialist Party because they wanted less government was it? Too bad just because a moron like you might be accepted into a leftwing pit of a college you think you are intelligent. Wow, another shining example of an Obama sheep bleating against the wind, going nowhere.
