As everybody has heard by now. President Obama called Kanye West a jackass in off-the-record pre-interview comments to ABC’s Terry Moran.
Yeah he’s the President, but he’s a real person with an opinion that a lot of people including myself share. Things like this seem to really help Obama.
CNN aired a little more of the audio from that incident that shows the conversation leading up to the “jackass” comment and further endears the President to a lot of the American public…
P.S. To Kanye’s credit, He apologized for the incident and was open about it. I like Kanye’s music and think overall he’s a good guy, but needs an ego check and to show a little more thoughtfulness and respect towards other people. We all make mistakes.
Either way he gave Obama a chance to connect with more people.
