Here’s audio of our President telling CNBC people that that rapper who said one lady’s music video was better than the other lady’s music video during an annual television special for 13-year-olds… is a “jackass.” Okay. [YouTube]

  1. Honestly I don’t see why this is news. Anyone with a pulse and the capacity for any type of communication said the exact same thing after seeing that spectacle of drunken nonsense. Hell, Kanye’s mom would have said it too. If she weren’t dead of course.

  2. it’s a misunderstanding. barry means kanye is a democrat (or was acting like a democrat).

    hey! put down that stick! i’m a democat! (and a jackass. jackasses of the world unite! you have nothing to lose but… well, you have nothing to lose.)

  3. We talked about this earlier. Is this really big news? Okay, now next year Taylor Swift will sing “Happy Birth-day Mister Pres-i-dent!” to our black guy leader and all the militia groups will riot…

  4. So, jackass is a bad word? I might have called Kanye a drunk, but jack ass will do. How meaningless. I would, however, like to know who the Democrats were who voted against rebuking Joe Wilson. Now that guy’s a real jack ass.

  5. See in the broader context of this interview Obama is sorta calling Kanye a jackass, but he’s really secretly calling Joe Wilson a jackass. But whatever, he’s right on both counts.

  6. “You lied, jackass, I’m going to stick this fucking tennis ball up your fucking ass, Beyonce had the best video.”

    Oh..I get it, you have to string the week in dumbassetry together to get to the hidden message.

  7. OT I know, but Is it possible that this Rush Limbaugh’s self-loathing is a result of being the product of a bi-racial love affair? I don’t know if it’s true, but is it possible?

  8. Should have listened to George Carlin’s 700 Words You Can’t Say on TV When You’re the President, a little known companion to the more famous 7 Words You Can’t Say on TV.

  9. [re=411721]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: I’m not saying it’s true…….because I don’t know…..but if it were true, wouldn’t that mean that Rush was a member of the Acorn Army? Could all of his rantings be a way of discrediting Glenn Beck? IS. IT. POSSIBLE?

  10. Kayne shoulda just flown a commercial jet liner over Radio City Music Hall to avenge Beyonce – he could make an entire city cry like little white girls.

  11. [re=411701]shadowMark[/re]: Actually, I read in an interview with Darren Black, son of the founder of Stormfront and oft-touted heir-apparent for David Duke, that he is a creepily over-the-top fan of Taylor Swift’s, so you are probably right.

  12. [re=411727]V572625694[/re]: Typical elitist black people will tolerate their fancy-pants snooty tennis players threatening to murder line judges in their beds, but one poor black child from the Oak Lawn ghetto with Rapper’s Tourette’s speaks up for for Beyonce and he’s a jackass.

    Where is the justice.

  13. If Barry’s going to get into the inappropriate outburst business, he needs to take lessons from his COS. That should have been “Motherf**king jackass, motherfu**ker”.

  14. [re=411736]slappypaddy[/re]: [re=411729]Gopherit[/re]: [re=411721]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: There’s no evidence it isn’t true. Just saying.

    [re=411720]Carl Spakler[/re]: You got there sooner and funnier.

  15. [re=411732]Brendan M.[/re]: Oh great! I Googled “Stormfront Taylor Swift” and then went to some site and started reading about “negroes embarrassing that pretty taylor swift girl” and “mtv is all jewed up” and I freaked out and clicked away and cleared my browser history and restarted my computer and now for the next three days I’m going to be paranoid about Echelon or some such thing linking my computer to that weird-ass site. On the X-Files nothing good ever happened to people who see stuff like that…


    Really, though, why can’t he be this frankly adult-like throughout the whole interview/presser and not be robot-man? Vulgarity used sparingly and appropriately is the way to speak to most people at once.

  17. [re=411759]shadowMark[/re]: “Googled” and you think you are safe?

    Where have you been the last 6 years?

    See, Bush set up this little room in San Fransisco that all your, uh, inquiries go though and into huge metafilters and then stored under the appropriate sub-heading. “Wonkette” is surely a sub-heading. Hopey hasn’t stopped the fishing, sorry to say.

    Aluminum foil is shinier than tin…

  18. [re=411756]V572625694[/re]: Hey, it doesn’t happen to often…so I’m going to revel in the moment…

    OK, as the boss would say: Moment’s over jackass, stop fucking off on the intertubes and get back to work!

  19. [re=411753]aleks[/re]: it’s below his pay grade.

    [re=411764]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: [re=411759]shadowMark[/re]: Mail bomb. Fertilizer. Same-sex marriage. Nader for President!

  20. “Jackass” is the perfect putdown. You can’t say it without smiling, and it transcends all races, creeds, and backgrounds.

    Limbaugh? Jackass.
    Beck? Jackass?
    Van Jones? Jackass.
    Joe Wilson? Jackass.
    Rev. Wright? Jackass.

    Once again, our President is Perfection Personified.

  21. [re=411687]Brendan M.[/re]: I have to say Kanye is a jackass, but usually the reserve the term for people in a movie with their hand up an elephants ass or a tea bag republican

  22. All this really means is that with one word the President has disarmed the wingnuts from using the episode in their Last Gasp of Crackerdom festivities.

  23. [re=411700]CaliforniaMike[/re]: Barry could have called him “a Negroid with a Messiah complex”, but that would be the pot calling the kettle…
    No. No, I won’t.

  24. [re=411732]Brendan M.[/re]: the future leader of a white supremactist group has the last name…Black?
    Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

  25. [re=411824]SomeNYGuy[/re]: Raging Woody and Rogue Tweet — When Pixar does the Wonkette movie those will be the two awkward, comic relief characters that go on to star in their own direct-to-DVD adventures.

  26. Kanye appeared dazed and confused making his apology on Jay Leno’s new show, which is Jay’s old show only earlier to get around the contract forced out of NBC by Conan’s agent. It’s a testament to West’s celebrity that the President called him a name, and he’ll be fine. As previously noted, “jagoff” would seem more apropos than “jackass,” since it is a particularly popular epithet on the streets of Chicago, where the President is from — but it’s usage there is mostly limited to working class Caucasians.

  27. Rush Limbaugh was certainly not born out of an out of wed interracial combination, so can we just stop these rumors now please? While he hasn’t denied the experience, we shouldn’t push this against him. So unless any of you has any real evidence to the contrary, we should just wait for Limbaugh to speak for himself. These rumors are terrible, but why won’t Rush deny them?

  28. I was going to make some sort of Kanye/Kenya anagram joke cuz I’m a word nerd but I honestly just don’t care enough. A jackass by any other name…

  29. [re=411700]CaliforniaMike[/re]: One does not say ‘jagoff’ after teaching constitutional law at the University of Chicago. According to the Harvard Bluebook of ‘A Uniform System of Legal Citation’, the accepted term is “antonin”.

    Thus it has been said, thus it is written.

  30. [re=411868]expatinOz[/re]: Damnit, I was about to make some Kanye-Kenya joke, and then you fucked it up by not even making a joke.

    [re=411853]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Ahahaha!

  31. Does this mean we’re soon going to see Kanye West on Glenn Beck sticking up for himself? And will Glenn Beck then say that hip hop is more of a “real American” style of music, and that he’s sick of these flaky, shallow country singers?

    The world has gone mad. Keep it real, Glenn dawg.

  32. The President called Kanye West a jackass – So did everybody else in known universe (except that clingy, creepy looking new girlfriend of his, of course). Pink even called him a piece of shit. Both POTUS and Her Royal Pinkness were merely stating the bloomin’ obvious. Like the policemen says- “Nothing to see here folks, just move on…”

    I suppose I could add here that Lady Gaga deserved the damned award more than either Ms. Swift or Beyonce. This is merely a personal view however, which I do not intend to start wrenching microphones out of peoples’ hands to broadcast…

  33. [re=411790]BobTheBuilder[/re]: I love the use of the word “jackass”. It’s so ‘elderly curmudgeon’ of Barry. I can’t wait to see him out on the White House stoop, telling those birther protester kids to get off his lawn.

  34. [re=411751]bitchincamaro[/re]: I’m glad someone else noticed that — it was my favorite part. Or did he mean “pita” – isn’t he a Muslin?
