Jay-Z Rap Fingers

Prez Obama in CubaGate

Tip for Jay-Z: rapping about your buddy President Obama and impeachment is not recommended. Jigga's new song about his Cuba trip stirred a huge controversy. Think there's even a little truth behind the rap?

Plus, Lindsay Lohan's upcoming rehab stint is a family affair. Her father, Michael Lohan's already done time there ... with questionable results. He calls in to explain why even he doesn't think it's gonna work for LiLo this time around.

And, Tiger Woods' new chick Lindsey Vonn is tailing him at The Masters -- and may be the good luck charm he needs to finally win another major tournament ... but does she look foolish supporting him so publicly?

MEME    

Note to Jay-Z, just because your wife sang for the President does not mean that you are his buddy, you do not have his cell phone #, you are not hanging out at The White House. Nor did they gain you entry to Cuba, but since Jay-Z is an ego maniac, and wants to brag on wax, he would say some dumb **** like that on wax. The White House reminded him that he is just a mere citizen like the rest of us. Out of all of those celebrities whom have publically endorsed Obama, Jay-Z seems to be the only one bragging about it like he is special. NOPE!!!

Jay Carney told White House reporters ... the only reason Jay-Z implicated Obama in his new song is because it's hard to find something that rhymes with treasury.
Hmmm, am I missing something?

Jay Z is an arrogant jackass with big lips. Beyonce is just like him but has this wholesome image and acts like she is perfect. I did vote for Obama but if he did pull strings so his buddies can do what other people can't do then I will support him being impeached. I am about being fair to all, I do not care if they went to Cuba or not, but to be granted permission to be above the law is wrong and I don't support this.

The only reason that this is such a big deal in the first place is that both P.O.T.U.S. and Jay are black. Thousands of Americans travel to Cuba each year, no one says a thing. So when someone who hobnobs with the President goes to Cuba everyone is up in arms. Jay Z didn't start anything, this is merely an excuse for the racists in the media to have a dog whistle to blow.
