Kim Kardashian's boyfriend Kanye West is going to have to try hard to make a good impression on President Obama. In September 2009, Obama famously called Kanye “a jackass” after the rapper’s onstage ambush of country singer Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards. Apparently, his feelings haven’t changed one bit!
In a recent interview, the President was asked whether he prefers Jay-Z or Kanye West. Without hesitation, Obama answered, “Jay-Z”, before adding, “although I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented." When the interviewer reminded Obama of his 2009 comment, the president replied, "He is a jackass ... but he's talented."
It seems, the Obama family is not too fond of Kim Kardashian either. A source close to the family has been quoted saying, "Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians — when they watch that stuff — he doesn’t like that as much." First Lady, Michelle Obama had spoken about her daughter's TV habits with a magazine, adding that the first father sees the adventures of the Kardashian sisters franchise as a great example of what not to do in life.
Kayne West, who probably is busy with his lady love Kim Kardashian, hasn't responded to Obama's comments yet.
