Barack Obama’s Secret Terrible Insult For Kanye West Revealed By Rogue Tweet!

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

NEXT STEP: THE DANCE FLOORApparent MTV employee Barack Obama called human simulacrum Kanye West a “jackass.” This is in response to Kanye yelling something in bad taste to Faith Hill at the Country Music Awards, which has been plaguing our President, this altercation between two Hollywood movie stars about something, a shared boyfriend maybe. Anyway, this latest declaration from Obama is “causing quite a stir on Twitter,” as all known events have been wont to do lately, because it was apparently given off the record to CNBC. But CNBC and ABC got their scoops crossed, and ABC’s Terry Moran Twittered the “jackass” comment, which was bad form because how dare journalist Terry Moran report this exclusive information. The Tweet has since been sent back to Hell. [Michael Calderone]

    Stupid fucking jack ass seems more fitting.

    At least BHO is calling a spade a spade.

  • ManchuCandidate

    So, the Obama-bot can swear and show anger. It is a good sign, but would be even better if some of that were directed at the Repuglicants and their Teabagging paymasters.

    As for Moran. Hmmm, sometimes family names are given for a reason.

    Glad I clicked through to the story. From your intro, I thought Obamer was twittering. If true, I would have to reconsider my vote against Hillary. Now I just have to decide why I read a War Blog that links to Politico.

    Let’s just eliminate the time delay and come out with Tweet 2.0.

    It will be a direct cranial implant, so as to allow the instantaneous transmission of gaffes, faux pas, indiscretions, malapropisms, self-incriminations, and thoughts better left unsaid.

    Because of the amount of WAKE UP SHEEPLEZ! who will use it, it will be called Bleet.

  • JamesMichaelCurley

    It is a sad commentary on journalism when any interest in this story originates from some guy named Moran.

  • MingPicket

    This is clearly his sister soulja moment or something.

    Meanwhile, former Carter press secretary and early snarker Jody Powell died.

    Responding to a critic who accused his boss of “communistic” tactics against opponents of the busing used to desegregate schools, Mr. Powell wrote that one of a governor’s burdens was having to read “barely legible letters from morons.”

    Get a life, MORAN!

    When the twats tweet
    and the cock crows
    the beer summit will rise on the Gay Fish
    and the little white girl will cry.
    Obama unicorn.

    Sasha Fierce.


  • bitchincamaro

    Faith Hill, Taylor Swift, Minnie Pearl, whatever. You are deliciously naughty, Juli. You deserve a spanking.

  • Larry Fine

    Kayne should retaliate by coming out with some cool rap lyrics in his next song dissing the Prsident. Then Obama should give him some jive talk . Then some of their posses should shoot each other.

  • hobospacejunkie

    I heard crossing the scoops was bad.

  • friendlyskies

    Finally, something that brings the entire nation together behind the President, that doesn’t involve planes flying into buildings. Thank you, Kanye.

  • Gorillionaire

    Ha ha and you all said journalism was dead.

  • Gleep!

    would someone be kind enough to provide a explanation of the incident and hopey’s involvement in it? (some sort of chart or diagram would be nice) I wasn’t paying attention back when this kerfluffle began but now that it’s grown into some sort of political scandal I need to be properly briefed so I can snark )at the moment I’m not sure why Kayne would say something mean about Ellen to Faith….)

    thank you

  • TGY

    A Tweet can be halfway around the world before good sense gets its boots on.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Mr. President, you’re stepping on Joe Biden’s portfolio.

  • bitchincamaro

    [re=411178]Gleep![/re]: Here’s a clear sketch of the whole scenario:

  • PrairiePossum

    Barry hates black people. When Joey Wilson called him a liar, he didn’t call him a naughty name.


    [re=411194]bitchincamaro[/re]: i could kinda make sense of that, actually. this other shit that supposedly passes for news ? not so much.

  • Gleep!

    [re=411194]bitchincamaro[/re]: ah thanks- that makes it so much clearer- but who was wearing the Roller Skates? is Heather Grahamm involved? cause she’s hot

  • norbizness

    Playing videos is about as foreign to MTV’s current business plan as having sane, reasonable guests who don’t need spit guards is to Fox News’ business plan.

  • BadKitty

    [re=411194]bitchincamaro[/re]: Thank you, bitchin. That was very ….er, not all helpful. If I wanted to see that shit, I’d do some work.

  • bfstevie

    But we still don’t know how Michael Steele feels about all this. He is, as the young people say, the mack daddy of the hip hop. Also.

  • Tundra Grifter

    Based on his previous behavior it’s crazy to invite Kanye West to any awards show – but what in the world is he doing at the Country Music Awards? WTF? Ray Charles could just go out there and make one of the greatest country music albums in his spare time, but Kanye West? I’m looking for his cover of “You Ain’t Much Fun Since I Quit Drinking.”

  • widget09

    I don’t think Kayne West is a Jackass, he’s a douchebag! Get with the program Barry!

  • The Church of Realism

    HaHa, I had to look up simulacrum because I have a public school education. Stupid Michigan.

  • aleks

    Awfully “protective” of that hot white girl eh Mr. President? Taylor Swift only dates verifiable Americans, birth certificate please!

  • Jim89048

    Everybody disses the Kanye! South Park did it first. Stephen Colbert did it. Twice!
    Why does Obama hate colored people?

  • rev_matt_y

    I would have to say the summary is the best description of the faux-event I’ve seen yet.

  • Guppy06

    It’s coming from CNBC. Therefore, it must be a lie.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    I wish my parents had named me Rogue Tweet. Sounds better than Kevin Keeney, at least.

  • proudgrampa

    [re=411194]bitchincamaro[/re]: I thought that was a graphic explaining our banking system…

  • shadowMark

    [re=411269]aleks[/re]: Taylor Swift only dates verifiable Americans — Let’s work this out. JFK has an affair with Marilyn Monroe. And JFK ends up getting shot in the head. Barack Obama has an affair with Taylor Swift. And… what? I’m guessing the “and” is: And the Jonas brothers take Obama out back and beat the crap out of him but that’s a worse presidential legacy even than Monica.

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=411202]PrairiePossum[/re]: He probably did call Joe a jackoff. There just wasn’t a Moran around to twat about it.

  • Neoyorquino

    “Rogue Tweet” is going to be the name of my next band.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=411308]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: [re=411389]Neoyorquino[/re]: Sorry you two, but Willow Palin called dibs on “Rogue Tweet” via her MySpace page late last night.

    How ’bout “Jackass Moran” as an alternative?

  • IonaTrailer

    I like that picture of Ellen and Obama. She saying, “Dam, you are half-white.”

  • LowerdPeninsula

    I’d so love to see Kanye get up at the next award show and say “President Obama hates black people.”
