It looks like President Barack Obama has not forgiven Kanye West for the way he treated Taylor Swift on stage at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
Even though a couple of years has passed since Kanye West made the infamous, “I’ma let you finish” rant at the MTV Video Music Awards where he stole Taylor Swift’s moment and did not let her shine on stage, the American president still sees him as a “jackass”President Obama. In the upcoming May issue of The Atlantic, the president Obama called the rapper a jackass ‘again’ saying “He’s very talented. He is a jackass, but he’s talented.”
The first time president Obama, who is a fan and friends with Beyonce and Jay-Z called Kanye a ‘jackass’ was in an interview with CNBC. The president and father of two girls found Kanye’s behaviour to be inappropriate and said: “I thought that was really inappropriate.” “You know it was like she’s getting an award — why are you butting in? The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person. She’s getting her award. What’s he doing up there? He’s a jackass,” he said.
