President Obama Still Thinks Kanye West is a Jack A**

Who could forget back at the 2009 Video Music Awards, when Kanye West stole the show and Taylor Swift's time when he interrupted her right in the middle of her acceptance speech for her first VMA win.

And who could forget when President Obama spoke about the incident off-the-record three years ago and called Kanye a "jack a**."

Well, here it is 2012 and people are still talking about that. While recently speaking to The Atlantic's David Samuels, President Obama was asked if he liked Kanye or Jay-Z?

Oh boy...

The president smiles. “Jay-Z,” he says, as if the answer should be obvious.
Although I like Kanye,” Obama continues, with an easy smile. “He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.”
“Even though you called him a jacka**?,” I ask.
“He is a jacka**,” Obama says, in his likable and perfectly balanced modern-professorial voice. “But he’s talented.”
Lol! Well it is safe to say the President meant what he said about Kanye.

What do you think about the President's comments?
