Barack Obama was caught on tape before an interview with CNBC calling Kanye a jackass. TMZ has posted the audio, so you should listen to it here. TMZ has also posted a poll, asking readers whether the president was right or wrong in saying this (aka, was it inappropriate for THE PRESIDENT to say). At the time I read this, there were 92% of 300,000 people who voted “Way to go!”. Take that Kanye. Even the president realizes your innate ability to be a total douchebag.
