Obama Calls Kanye West a "Jack-ass"

Wow, now this is quite a powerful rebuke from the most powerful man in the world.

During a CNBC interview on Monday, President Obama called hip-hop artist Kanye West a "jackass" over his behavior at the MTV Video Music Awards.

It was a classless and idiotic move to grab the mic from Taylor Swift and I'm glad Obama is taking him to task for his behavior. Too bad he can't label Hugo Chavez or Ahmadinajoke a "jack-ass" as well. I'm kind of torn about Obama weighing in on the MTV Music Awards as kind of beneath the office of the President. However, it is nice to see him weighing in on pop culture stuff every once in a while.
