President Barack Obama
has a message for Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey -- GIVE PEACE A CHANCE!!!!!

The war at the "American Idol" judges' table was escalated all the way to the Commander In Chief this weekend when POTUS appeared on Michael Yo's radio show.

"I think that they are going to be able to sort it out," Obama said ... "I am confident."

Obama continued, "I'm all about bringing people together, working for the same cause. I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that they're moving forward and not going backwards."

And when asked who's his favorite, Obama actually picked a side -- replying, "Mariah. She's actually done some events for us. I've gotten to know her and Nick [Cannon]. She's a wonderful lady."

He added ... "Nicki, I don't know, but I've got her on my iPod."

The amount of hatred for this man just because he is black is digusting. Is this how you show you are americans? How pitiful! A nation so obsessed with racism that you rather disrespect yourselves than accept a black man. Morons!

Obama probably wants to be an American Idol judge. He'll work harder at it than he ever did in his previous job as President.

Glad to know that Obama has so much time to worry about two idiots fake fighting for attention.

No wonder the country is in the mess that it's in.

He believes this wasn't staged, and he probably believes he'll wake up tomorrow and the trillions we're now in deficit will just go away too.

It is my opinion that the president of the United States of America should not be publicly commenting on something like a feud or argument between judges of a pop culture show like AI, especially one down and dirty like this one, with threats to shoot someone. It is beneath the dignity that the office used to have. In private, he can say what he likes, but publicly, there are much larger problems. It is a bad image to see the president take up even 2 seconds of his time to actually comment to the media about this kind of trash nonsense. People are DYING, KILLED, BROKE, UNEMPLOYED, HOPELESS. Stop talking about nonsense like this. He always steps in when black people are involved. Next, he'll be inviting them for another "beer summit" to discuss their problems in the Rose Garden. As a non-drinker, I am offended every time that beer is his solution to everything.

Dear Mr. President,
We, as Americans do understand you have the HOTS for Beyonce. Every man in America probably shares the same fantasies about Beyonce that you do.

Tha thing that isn't understandable is:
Why do you devote your time and attention to a fake publicity feud?
Wouldn't your time be better served devoting attention to the crisis in CHICAGO - WHERE 5 CHILDREN WERE KILLED AND 25 CHILDREN WERE INJURED IN GUN FIRE OVER THE WEEK-END.
Wouldn't your efforts be better spent cleaning up that mess?
What are your priorities Mr President? Safety in our streets or a possible future career in Hollywood?
Which is it?

If you have Netflix, check out "Dreams from My Real Father." The father part may be iffy, but the dirt Obama has been involved in and they expose, is shocking. What a lying fraud.
