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.

CHRYL    

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 throughout the presidential re-election and we know beyonce and it appears that she does nothing without getting something back in return;

Beyonce appears to be one of the most selfish entertainers out there, so I have no doubt that something was promised to beyonce and jayz!!!!!!!
REVISED STATEMENT:

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 DAY WHEN THIS HAPPENS!!!!!!!!

Wonder why everybody's getting so excited about the mere possibility that this couldn't be true. The lie about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has been swallowed comparatively handsomely by the general public. But then, maybe it just didn't matter that much ..

We were just targeted for a terrorist attack, and te leader of our nation is on the Today show, talking about a drug-dealing rapper. How insane are the times in which we are living? Now, as always, Obama doesn't give a damn about this nation, only about aligning himself with those who will help ensure he makes millions when he leaves office.

I think people would believe him if he managed to NOT appear on a tv show for more than a week. Not like any important, critical events are happening in our country. Just keep appearing on NBC or The Today Show. Jeez.

Who gives a damn if Jay-Z and Beyonce went to Cuba!! Last time I checked this is America and we are free to go where ever we damn well please!! Just because American government has issues with Cuba and doesn't allow direct flight to the county does not mean we are not allowed to go there!!

Throwback kid    

I hate to say I told yo so but I was right. Obama is in love with himself and being a celebrity, he is now in his second term and he is doing the same horrible job as he did in his first term. He still blames Bush for all his problems and anyone who calls Obama out for his horrible record gets called a racist. Only three more years of this moron then we get a real President and Obama can go to Hollywood and make millions making speeches and hang out with his celeb pals who he uses for cash. Hope and Change? he was better as a community organizer

LIE LIE LIE ,,, Even when Jay Z raps and says Obama gave him permission the blind sheep still dont believe it. Benghazi + Blame Hillary High Unemployment+ Blame Bush, No Budget for 5 years= Blame Congress, Jay Z goes to Cuba and say Obama gave him permission.=Blame Jay Z. Biggest Liar to ever be in office and on top of it you have his fat wife with twinkies hanging off her chin telling me what Im supposed to be feeding my kids.
