President Obama

I'm Not Jay-Z's Travel Agent

4/17/2013 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



President Obama
is squashing Cubagate once and for all -- and it seems he's had it up to here with Jay-Z.

When POTUS was asked about the trip on "Today" ... you could see him bristle.  At first he tried being diplomatic, and finally in a moment of frustration groused, "We've got better things to do."

Jay-Z sparked controversy when he rapped in "Open Letter" -- "Obama said chill ‘You gonna get me impeached' ... We don’t need this s**t anyway chill with me on the beach.'"

The question now ... Is Jay-Z persona non grata at the White House?  That tends to happen when you embarrass the Prez.  If that's the case, Michelle's 50th BD is gonna be awkward, because Beyonce is slated to sing ... or lip sync.

Good job, TMZ. Way to feed the right nutjobs and conspiracy theorists who think Obama is the root of all evil. Anybody who's stupid enough to believe the President even has time for nonsense like that, or that Jay Z has a direct line to the Oval Office, is stupid enough to vote for Romney.

Jay Z is an idiot because he and his wife tried to distance themselves from KimYe and then turns around and reverses any good by adding the Prez to his weak ass rap song & starting stuff by going to Cuba.

I think you meant "vacay," TMZ because "vaca" is "cow" in Spanish and, despite what I think of her, Beyonce is WAAAAYYY too pretty to be called a cow.

I Believe the President when he says he had nothing to do with it, but the White House is a different Story, I do not know of how many educational trip there are that are organized for people to stay at the most expensive Hotels, owned by the Castro Regime, Eat at the best Restaurants owned by the Castro Regime. What did Jay Z get his education in Cuban Cigars Owned by the Cuban Regime, And by the way the Cuban Regime Makes these people that waited on Jay Z and Beyoncé Hand and Foot for no Money, they are slave Labors in the country.

When does this man take responsibility for anything? the media kiss his ass on a daily basis and people continue to say he is doing a good job-really? If unemployment were 75% they would still vote for him.

If the president had no knowledge, Jay Z was very bold to put those lyrics out there if they were not true!!!!!!

Beyonce and Jayz appeared a lot thur out the presidential re-election and a lot of that know beyonce knows that she does nothing without getting something in return; Beyonce appears to be one of the most selfish entertainers out there, so I have no doubt that something was promised to byeyonce and jayz!!!!!!!

BUT IF THIS WAS PART OF AN AGREEMENT WITH THEM, I AM VERY ASHAME THAT THEY WERE ALLOWED TO GET THIS MUCH LEADWAY AND PRIVILEGE........VERY SAD!!!!!
