Kanye West Speaks On Barack Obama’s ‘Jackass’ Comment

September 22, 2010 Leave a comment

A year after this infamous breakdown, it’s quite clear that Kanye West is a newly reformed man. A million apologies later, and some Good Fridays to boot, the Chicago super-producer looks to be going down the right path.  There’s no question that Kanye faced tons of scrutiny from the public/media after his 2009 VMA incident, but one of the most shocking comments came from  President Barack Obama, who called  him a ‘jackass’ during this off-air ABC interview. In the latest issue of XXL, the Louis Vutton don addresses the Commander in Chief’s comments:

When Obama called me “jackass”, after the Taylor incident, I thought that the person who taped that wasn’t supposed to tape it. Obama was supposed to be speaking off the record. Obama has way more important stuff to worry about than my public perception. He was trying to pass the healthcare bill. And if he said that to relate to the room or lighten the room up and the whole mood, then I’d be more than happy to be the butt of all of his jokes if it in the some way helps his overall mission. I’m a soldier of culture. I’m resilient. I’m sure I’ll still beat him in basketball.
