Off-air video of Obama calling Kanye West a "jackass."
At least now I can say that I agree with Mr. Obama about something.
How’s the investigations of Congressional corruption going? How’s the condemnation of ACORN? How’s about all the promises you made about your administration, Moron?
Is “jackass” on the approved list of put-downs according to the U.S. House?
“Come on, guys. Let’s cut The President some slack.”
So..one jackass said to the other jackass....
discovered..! Yeah right..! In Kanye he sensed an OPPORTUNITY to pull a “I’m sooooo moderate”-orchestration..!
OBVIOUS AS HELL..!
Did he say it? sure..! But DO NOT BELIEVE THIS BS..!!
Since the jackass is the official DNC symbol, I suppose Obama was just acknowledging the obvious, in what he thought was a complimentary way.
Come to think of it Obama’s a jackass too. In fact he’s the leader of the jackasses.
Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
I finally agree with Obama on something
Is it just me or when 0bama starts to call him a jackass he says it without moving his lips (teeth clenched in a smile) real cocky like or something strange,
What a jackass....and I do mean Hugo.....
Oh, like you haven’t thought that plenty of times yourself. ;’)
Also about Kanye West, for that matter. /rimshot
Obama called Kanye a jackass because Kanye is black. Obama is a racist.
So, then, I guess da half-white Obama must be a racist ‘cuz he be dissin’ da all-black Kanye?
Or maybe Obama’s racist ‘cuz he disagrees wit Kanye about Beyonce havin’ a better video den dat white chick??
Or, maybe dat Obama’s juss a little too pale to be talkin’ trash ‘bout one of da brothas like dat. Yeah, he talks a good game, but his white Mama done left him wit Uncle Tom roots, an you can’t overcome dat; it’s in da blood.
Obama calling a black Kanye West a jackass would be considered racism, wouldn’t it?
Spontaneous? I think not.
It's a "spintaneous" comment.
Not strange at all, that’s they way I say it. Why would anyone need to move their lips to pronounce that?
Now, dumbass does require lips. :-[I]
Why the hell is the POTUS involving himself in the inane behavior of the entertainment world anyway? The One is so totally out of his league and he seems incapable of learning from his past mistakes (ie-the Prof Gates episode)?
Your lips moved unless you are gritting your teeth or a pretentiously cocky smartass.
Video “EMERGES”.....what a SHOCK!!!! You don’t think the White House PLANNED some kind of “Sista Souljah” moment now do you? NAAAAAAAAAAH!
BREAKING NEWS......Kanye West just interrupted Patrick Swayze’s funeral to let everyone know that Michael Jackson’s funeral was better!
who the hell is kanye west?
Haha. I’ve been needing a new tagline...
Haha. I’ve been needing a new tagline...
Dang it double post. Sorry. Second time this week, I’m gonna smash this computer.
“Even a broken clock is right twice a day.”
Or a blind squirrel finds a acorn once in a while.
Beauty, Joe! LOL
A practiced behavior. Say something bad about or to someone, but do it with a smile, and kinda under your breath. Then you can claim it was a joke, or misunderstood, or not meant to inflame anyone. Oh, yes, a smile when you are insulting or dissing someone will serve as a good "cover." Typical narcissistic, cowardly behavior.
Yeah, I did notice that. But it seemed to me like he was trying to say it “under his breath” with a wink & nod, sort of.
You notice the control he wanted to have over the media there as to say “don’t dare let this out because this guy and the rest of hip hop validate my street cred”, man...this is gold. About the only time I would ever agree with Obama.
UNDER THE BUS KANYE!
It’s well known about Kanye’s ego and ridiculous behavior in the industry and behind the scenes...the guy is just off the charts the biggest dumb ass. Obama knows it deep inside and called him exactly what everyone else calls him behind his back. Kudos to Bama for keepin’ it real here although he was commanding the press to cover up for him.
Or put in another way:
Q: “What did one jackass say about another?”
A: “He’s a jackass...”
Bookmarked to watch
[Can’t say I haven’t been called that from time to time, minus “pretentious.” ]... But if you’ve lived in Illinois long enough to pick up the manner of speech, that’s the way it’s often said, with gritted teeth. Maybe all Illini are smartasses too, but gritted teeth aren’t unusual in regional speech. I’ve had a few European tourists take note of that, otherwise I would never have noticed. There are other words less profane that get the same stiff-lips locked-teeth treatment used by Obama. Like “cheese,” “sugar,” “Jesus”, “Chicago,” and with a more open but still set jaw, there are words such as “delicious.” The phrase “Wouldja like schuger inyer tea?” is said with teeth closed or nearly so and virtually no visible facial movement. Just don’t add any words with an F, P or an M.
0bama’s Sister Souljah moment.
Not even all that creative and obvious as Hell.
We should declare a holiday. Ostammer finally got something right. It’s a first.
He is FULL of himself!
What a 2012 campaign ad that will make!!!
“OBVIOUS AS HELL..!”
No kidding!!!! The fringe media suddenly decides to go rogue? They have been covering for Obama since literally the day he was born, and suddenly they decide to release an “off the record” statment with Obama calling a private citizen a “jackass.” The American people are so stupid.
From a Taylor Swift interview. Good for her.
17. You are such an inspiration and role model to all girls of any age, and I think that’s awesome! How do you manage to stay away from all the bad things superstars seem to be getting pulled into these days?
I think it all comes down to who you surround yourself with and how strong your morals are. Before I make a decision, I stop and think about the 10-year-old girl I saw last night at my concert in the front row. I think about her mom. I think about how they bought my CD, thinking that I’m a good role model. Then I think about how they would feel if I did something to let them down. I can’t imagine a greater pain than letting one of those mothers down. I honestly can’t.
I now have an opinion of Miss Swift. God bless her.
