Come on people, Obama is human! Seriously, who wouldn't agree with him on this topic anyway. What Kahne did was disgraceful! These were the MTV VMA Awards, not the Kahne West VMA Awards. He is a JACKASS!

I am not a fan of Obama, I don't agree with his policies, however, I think this video is hilarious! I totally agree with him - Kanye is a Jackass. It shows he is human.

Yahoo for our President! He hit the nail on the head, Kanye is a king-sized JACKASS. The president is entitled to his opinion and I am glad he said it. Poor guy is going to get endless crap about it, but jeez, how can anyone argue that he isn't right on?

Whether you respect Obama or not, I find commenting on totally unrelated entertainment matters off-putting and unprofessional and RUDE.

Seriously, just go about your job and don't comment on trivial things like this, and don't have the media leak it out. It's stupid.

I don't think there's anyone that disagrees that what Kanye did was stupid. I like Jerry Seinfeld's reaction on the Kanye incident: "I think he did a great job" (I could be paraphrasing).

There's only so much stating the obvious we can digest.
I dislike his Obama's unprofessionalism.

77. Breaking News: Kanye West just interrupted Patrick Swayze's funeral to let everyone know that Michael Jackson's funeral was better.

THAT's hilarious!!!!!!!

Only reason Obama is pissed at Kanye is because Mr. West is giving racist a bad name. Obama likes to at least attempt to hide his racism, though very poorly at that. Kanye at least has the balls to be obvious with his bigotry

Dear Mr. President,

Thank you for calling it like everyone else did. Unfortunately, you were being recorded and they are trying to make this into big deal, it's not! If everyone who saw the show was being recorded, I'm quite sure there were worst things being said. Kanye was WRONG for doing what he did to Taylor Swift. The only thing that would be better is for her to return the favor to him......"if he's lucky enough to recieve anymore awards". My thing is..look at how they "SMILE IN YOUR FACE and then STAB U IN THE BACK"?
